Sony Introduces PlayStation Compatible Tablets
If you’ve thought the tablet market was crowded already, watch out! Sony is making way through the crowd! Sony has already launched its first two Android-enabled tablet computers at an event today in Tokyo. The tablets are called S1 and S2 and are both WiFi and 3G/4G compatible, running on Google’s prize-winning Honeycomb.
The first has a 9.4-inch display and the second has two 5.5-inch displays, allowing for 11 inches of total screen real-estate. Better yet, both will be capable of handling PlayStation games. This is seen as a brilliant strategic move by many analysts. That is, to release a beautiful Honeycomb tablet, with one very unique feature- PlayStation capability, a feature no other tablet currently offers. Sony will be fighting hard for its market share in the crowded tablet market, but I believe they have a fighting chance.
Consumers LOVE options, and being able to own a tablet that can also game is a HUGE plus in today’s age. Not to mention the fact that you can opt for dual-screen if you *choose. It’s not just about beating the Joneses anymore, it’s about having the freedom to choose what you want to do and when you want to do it. Prices and ETAs have not been provided yet but Engadget believes the S1 will cost $599, with the S2 following at $699. They may arrive in the Fall of 2011, but this is just a guess! Take a look at the video for a closer look at the new S1 and S2.
