Both tablets should come out this coming automn with more details on prices and specifications.

Sony’s Android tablets are very nice, hopefully they will be able to perform better in terms of sales than the Motorola Xoom which only sold 100,000 units since its launch date in February. Apple on the other hand has sold 500,000 Ipad 2 in just one weekend, now that’s amazing.
Android tablets manufacturers still have some work to do in order to gain more market share, but with tablets like the S1 and S2, it should just be a matter of time.
