Sony S1 and S2: Tablets get more specs leaked, September release date

A source “familiar with the company’s plans” has unveiled more detailed specs for Sony’s forthcoming S1 and S2 tablets to tech site CNET.

Sony look to be preparing four different versions of the more typically styled S1; there will be WiFi and 3G versions, whilst these will be further divided by storage size; 16GB and 32GB

The dual-screened S2 will come in 16GB and 32GB flavours and will be 3G capable, with no lower-priced WiFI-only models.

Those looking to extend storage on the S1 will have the ability to do so with standard SD cards. The screen has also had it’s secrets laid bare; it’s a 9.4-inch IPS display packing Sony’s Bravia and TruBlack technology found in its Vaio and TV ranges.

According to CNET’s mole, we can expect the Sony S1’s battery life to be “comparable to the iPad 2.” but nothing was mentioned of the S2 tablet’s lifespan.

Both Sony tablets are expected to arrive ahead of Europe’s biggest consumer electronics show, IFA 2011 in Berlin at the start of September 2011, with both device’s codenames expected to change ahead of their official launch.
