Another Android clamshell device
Sony became the latest computer maker to toss its hat in the Android tablet ring, announcing plans for two models during a press conference in Japan.
The Japanese computer maker announced plans for two Honeycomb tablets–the 9.4-inch S1 and the S2, with its dual 5.5-inch screens. Sony said the tablets will be available globally starting this fall.

It’s not too surprising that Sony is entering the tablet game, but the S2 almost seems doomed before it even launches. The Echo has been laughed at universally, and while two screens have become accepted in gaming, it seems like a concept that will probably never work out in a product such as tablets where you want to surf the Web. Although it is interesting to note that several months ago a drawing similar to the S2 leaked around the Web as a design for a PlayStation related product, so it’s interesting to see that the design was indeed real, it was just the wrong product.
