Sony S1 and S2 tablets to launch in Europe in September?
The Sony S1 and Sony S2 tablets are the first for the Japanese company trying to step into the booming tablet market, but up until now, we only heard a confirmation about the existence of the 9.4-inch S1 tablet with a folded magazine design and the dual-screen S2 with two 5.5-inch displays. But work has been quietly going on and the latest leaked note obtained by Engadget shows that the release date for an unnamed Sony tablet is set for end-September.
The device is expected to be available for pre-order even earlier in August, available through Sony Direct, UK store John Lewis, and one more uncofirmed retailer. There were no details on whether the mysterious tablet will be the bigger S1 or the dual-screen S2 and the rest of the note claiming some “unique design features” for the tablet making it a worthy rival to the iPad, doesn't help much. Just recently, we saw the Sony S2 hit the FCC, so while this doesn't mean that it will necessarily come out soon, it has already passed one obstacle on its way to the market.
