World-renowned Japanese tech company Sony today announced not one but two stylish Honeycomb (Android 3.0) tablets at a press event in Tokyo. The first, referred to as the S1 Media Tablet is wedge-shaped, sports a brilliant 9.4 inch display, front- and rear-facing cameras and has a Tegra 2 SoC dual-core processor under the hood.
The second is a fashion-forward clamshell device known as the S2. Although it shares the S1’s Tegra 2 SoC processor, the S2 sets itself apart from the crowd with a pair of 5.5-inch 1,024 x 480 pixel displays. As expected, the S2 device supports split keyboard and messaging displays as well as split displays and controllers for PSOne gaming. According to Sony, both devices are Playstation Certified, WiFi-enabled and 3G/4G compatible. Although the devices won’t hit the open market till the last quarter of this year, rumour has it that the S1 and S2 will be priced in the range of N93,000 and N110,000 respectively. Don’t forget to breathe as you feast your eyes on the sleek press shots and a video of the iPad 2 killers.
