Sony S1 And S2 To Compete With iOS This Autumn

Sony S1 And S2 To Compete With iOS This Autumn

Sony will be releasing its first two tablets this autumn which will run a variant of Google’s Android tablet OS. The S1 is a full size tablet that looks like a soft cover book folded back on itself while the S2 is a Nintendo DS-style dual screen clamshell design.

It seems Sony is going after Apple with a one-two punch taking on the iPad with the full size S1 while going after the iPod Touch/iPhone with the clamshell S2. Unfortunately for Sony, Apple will have an 18 month lead and their strategy seems unclear. Are they intending the S2 to be a replacement for PSP? Don’t they already have a handheld system known as Xperia Play? Is anyone else confused?

CNET has a nice photo gallery of the Sony tablets if you want a sneak preview.
