In the month of April of current year, Sony announced the Sony S1 and the S2, the two tablets to be launch in the fall which were expected to be powered by Android 3.1 but some of the leaked screenshots, obtained by Carrypad, suggest that both the tablets would be running the newest Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
Android 3.2 will have a new better-developed app-zoom feature, before the Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich OS. As per rumors, Sony was to include its own Sony PlayStation Suite software as the operating system in the tablets but now instead of it, it appears that Sony will run Zinio and Chumby application.
AT&T has already announced on Jul 13th, 2011 that it would be the carrier provider of Sony’s new S2 tablet in the United States, wrapped off in April, and announced that it would offer a unique folding form factor with:
- Dual 5.5-inch 1024 x 480 displays
- Dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
- Powered by Android 3.0 Honeycomb
- Launch with support for AT&T’s HSPA+ 4G network
- Would also play Sony’s PlayStation Network for gaming and video services
Neither Sony nor AT&T revealed the pricing pattern and exact launch date but Sony has already announced that S2 would hit the market this fall.
