Sony Officially Releases Tablets

  • Come with Android 3.0
  • S2 tablet has dual screens
  • DLNA compatible

Although leaked to the press over two months ago, Sony has officially released its Tablets – the S1, which is optimised for media entertainment, and the S2, which is designed for mobile communication and entertainment.

Sony’s tablets are equipped with the latest Android 3.0 which is designed for devices with large screen sizes, particularly tablets. Both tablets are WiFi and WAN (3G/4G) compatible and users can not only browse the internet or check e-mail but they can also smoothly access digital content including videos, games and books through Sony’s premium network services and more, on-the-go at any time.

S1 has a 9.4-inch for displaying the web and content on a large screen. Its off-centre of gravity design realises stability and ease of grip as well as a sense of stability and lightness, offering comfortable use for hours, claims Sony.

S2 has two 5.5-inch displays that can be folded for portability. Its dual-screen presentation and usability allows its displays to be combined and used as a large screen, or for different functions such as playing video on one screen while showing control buttons on the other.

These tablets are said to deliver an entertainment experience where people can utilize cloud-based services on-the-go, at any time.

Features include:

  • Designed for portability and intuitive gripping, the dual screen S2 comes with two 5.5-inch displays, which can also be used for different functions as users can watch a video on one screen and input commands on the other, or check email on one screen and use the other as a soft keyboard.
  • Users can perform smooth, quick touch-screen operations and have fast website loading.
  • Through Qriocity music and video services, users can watch and listen to video and music content. Also, through PlayStation Suite, users can immerse themselves in PlayStation  titles. Additionally, users can download ebook content from Reader Storeand use both tablets as digital reading devices.
  • It is possible to control home entertainment devices as well as enjoy content in new ways. S1 uses infrared technology and works as universal remote controls for a variety of AV devices. Users can perform functions like turning on their TVs, changing the channel and adjusting the volume. Also, through DLNA functionality on Sony Tablet, users can throw personal content to large screen televisions or music to wireless speakers.
