Sony’s upcoming S1 and S2 tablet to run Android 3.2 Honeycomb

Sony just released another short movie for its upcoming Android tablet S1 and S2. From the movie we can see in an animated controlled path, the S1 and S2 tablet being displayed. Mostly entertaining, as not much is revealed in terms of actual specs from the video.

The folks at Carrypad did manage to get some nice unreleased picture shots from Sony. Thanks to them, we can confirm that the Sony tablet S1 will be running Android 3.2 Honeycomb, the latest installment of the Android OS. Theoretically, the Sony S2 tablet should also be running Android 3.2 Honeycomb.

That is very good news, as usually manufacturers tend to release amazing new products with outdated OS. The only possible drawback could come from the heavy customization of the User Interface by Sony. Hopefully Sony’s UI won’t slow down the tablet too much. The UI looks great, just hoping that it’ll perform just as well.

Last but not least, it seems like the S1 tablet needs a special Sony adapter to get recharged. The charger does not look anything like a conventional one, so if you’re on the road, don’t forget it. I am not crazy about the charger, it looks kind of clumsy, I’m just hoping its a prototype.


No official release date and price, eventhought rumors are speculating the release for September.
