Sony Reveals Two New PlayStation Tablets
Sony has officially announced they will be releasing two new tablet devices capable of playing PlayStation games. This comes hot on the heals of the announcement of the Xperia Play gaming phone device that is also able to play PlayStation games as well.
The first of the bunch is the S1 tablet. It will be a Tegra powered device and has a tapered edge on one end that feels similar to "holding a magazine". It will be the first tablet from Sony to sport the "PlayStation Certified" label meaning it will play PlayStation titles and "Sony Approved" games for mobile devices. The Sony S1 tablet will have a 9 inch screen.
The second tablet, aptly named the S2, takes a different approach then the S1 mainly in terms of it's overall design. The S2 has a clam shell style casing similar to the DS that has the ability to fold open or closed. When opened, the bottom half would serve as the controller with the top screen acting solely as the source of the games visuals. Both of the S2 screens are 5.5 inches with a 1024x480 resolution.
Both devices are slated to be released sometime this fall but there is unfortunately no word yet on the pricing of the two devices. They both run on Android 3.0 and will have built in wi-fi as well as 3G and 4G connectivity.
