Sony announces two new Honeycomb tablets

Sony has just announced two new Honeycomb tablets, the S1 and S2. Tech specs are sparse, but we know the S1 will have a 9.4″ screen with an unknown resolution (probably 1280×800) and the S2 will be a foldable dual screen tablet with two 5.5″ 1024×480 screens. Both tablets will be able to access Sony’s Qriocity media store and stream the content wirelessly with Air Play’s open source brother, DLNA. The S1 will also have an infrared transmitter that will allow it to remote control other household devices. Both tablets will have Wifi and 3G/4G .

Aside from Qriocity, the tablets will also support Sony’s new PlayStation integration, meaning it can play old PS1 games. On the S2 the bottom screen will be used for controls while the top screen shows the game. Custom UI and browser is also in place. For good measure the S1 is also shaped like a wedge with most of the weight on one of the long sides, making it easier to hold (apparently). The tablets won’t be released until the fall, so we’ll no doubt see lots more detail before then. In the mean time, head over to Engadget to see more pics and videos.
