If press shots and teaser videos somehow weren’t enough to prove the existence of the Sony S1 and dual-screen S2 tablets to you, there’s good news: they have been spotted in the flesh.
The Honeycomb-based S1 was seen in the wild and photographed by German website Golem at a recent event in Munich. Unfortunately, Golem didn’t get any hands-on time with the advice. It did, however, get some face time with dual-screen, clamshell S2 tablet and captured it on video, which is posted below.
For those unfamiliar with the devices, the S1 is a 9.4-inch tablet while the S2 sports two 5.5-inch displays and both run Google Android OS 3.0, aka Honeycomb. Not much else has been revealed by Sony in terms of specs, other than the fact that they will both be equipped with Wi-Fi and 3G/4G connectivity, Qriocity1 music and video service, PlayStation Suite, and the Sony Reader eBook store. The S1, which will have a unique design that resembles a folded-over magazine, will also have universal remote applications for Sony Bravia devices.
Specific release dates and price points have yet to be announced for the S1 and S2, but they are due by this fall and are rumored to go for $599 and $699, respectively.
