The S2 tablet will feature a dual 5.5-inch touchscreen and will also be powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 chip. The S2 will only have one camera. The design of the S2 Sony Android tablet is unique for a tablet. The clamshell design with a screen on each side will allow independant use the screens or using the bottom screen as a keyboard/ gamepad.

Actually both tablets will have access to Sony Playstation Suite for playing Playstation games. They will also have access to Sony Qriocity service which integrate Sony’s device into a common network that you can access and use from your tablet. The S1 for instance could act like a remote control to control any Sony Bravia devices. You’ll be able to control your TV right from your Android tablet.
