Feb. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- News have come out early that Sony will work on its own tablets. And more and more hints have show that Sony will devote much effort to bring out very impressive tablets, just like their other gorgeous devices. Like many other, Sony safely chooses two very popular and powerful operating systems, android 3.0 and Windows 7, as its main focus. Both these two tablets will be equipped with very excellent configuration to compete with many famous branded tablets flooding out this year. The dual display android 3.0 tablet will show up prior to windows 7 tablet.
The first tablet, codenamed as S2, is an Android device with dual 5.5-inch displays, a Tegra 2 processor, Wi-Fi, embedded 3G and a modified version of Google’s Honeycomb OS designed to take advantage of two screens.S2 will display a video and picture navigation menu on one half of the clamshell with the selected content blown-up to fill the screen of the other. We're also told that these apps will work in a variety of orientations.
The second is Last up is a VAIO-branded 9.4-inch Windows 7 slider similar, we've been told, to Samsung's Sliding PC 7 Series and the ASUS Eee Pad Slider. It's design was described to us as "nice" and could easily be interpreted as a followup to the VAIO P series. Unfortunately, the hardware's good looks are undermined by a Pinetrail-class Atom processor. At the moment, the target price is set for $799 but will almost certainly increase, according to one source, by the time the slider is available for retail in the fall
