Sony Enters Tablet War With Wedge and Burrito-Shaped Devices
Sony has shown off a pair of tablets that will launch later this year. The S1 is little more than yet another Honeycomb tablet in a Sony-designed box, with a 9.4-inch widescreen display and a case which is wedge shaped.
Way more interesting is the S2, a clamshell tablet with two 5.5-inch screens. Each section has a rounded back, making it look like a squashed burrito when closed. When opened, you can use it as a tablet with a black stripe down the middle, or both screens can display different content, similar to the dual-screen Nintendo DS consoles.
It seems that Sony is trying to avoid being labeled as yet another iPad imitator. These devices are at least interesting to look at and if you have a lot of Sony technology already in place, they could be a good addition.
