Sony Tablet S1 and S2 screenshots leak; to come with Android 3.2 on board
Shedding some more light on the Sony S1 and S2 tablets is this bunch of screenshots, that the guys at Carrypad managed to get their hands on. The images are said to be coming straight from Sony's support website and reveal more than a few details about the devices.
First of all, we now have a clue hinting that the Sony Tablet S1 and S2 will be coming with Android 3.2 Honeycomb on board delivering the most up-to-date Android experience. Besides the goodies that the platform itself will pack, Sony will be adding a twist of its own – a “Wi-Fi Checker” app that seems to be meant to both assist users with connecting to Wi-Fi networks properly and troubleshooting connectivity issues.
Some of the other apps that the S1 and S2 tablets will come preloaded with include Chumby – an app that streams various types of content such as photos, social network updates and weather information when the device is docked, and Zinio, which is a digital magazine publishing platform. We also see a Media Remote app, which lines up with our suspicions that the tablets will be able to control TVs wirelessly, and Sony's Music Unlimited app, which allows you to stream your favorite tunes on demand.
The proprietary charger that the Sony Tablet S1 will use
Feel free to check out all the screenshots for yourselves and let us know what you think in the comments below. Anyone interested in getting a Sony S1 or S2 tablet when they launch later this year?

eeww.. i hate sony products, beautiful but experimental means your a lab rat lol & lots of variant means short lifespan and poor support.

If anyone could sway me to purchase a tablet, it'd be Sony.
The S2 looks pretty great. Nice idea for a tablet, clamshell design with dual screens.
If it could make/receive phone calls and texts (yeah... not going to happen), I'd throw out my phone and use the S2 for everything.
