The once elusive Sony S1 and S2 tablets can now be seen more often. So apart from the videos that Sony has been putting up, the two tablets were recently seen in Germany where both, the 9.4 inch S1 and the dual 5.5 inch screen S2 tablet, turned out to be pretty impressive pieces of hardware.
The S1 tablet is thicker at one edge while tapering towards the other edge, which resembles more like a folded magazine and actually aids in holding the device for long periods of time. That the tablet itself weighs just 600 grams is also another factor that makes it easy to handle.
Then there is the S2, with its unique clam shell form factor that’s compact enough to be carried in a pocket. When opened, there are two two 5.5 inch touchscreen displays that operate either in unison or individually, and the gap between the displays is just minimal.
Both the S1 and S2 are expected to hit Europe towards September, though maybe Sony will come up with a better naming scheme for the two tablets before then.
