It is somewhat ironic that Sony was one of the first few companies who were vocal about giving some serious competition to iPad but till date hasn’t revealed any tablet. However, if the leak by Engadget proves to be true, we might see their answer to iPad and other tablets pretty soon.
The device is known as S1 internally and will be Sony’s PlayStation Certified tablet (probably the first one). It will be a 9.4-inch Android 3.0-running tablet having a display supporting 1280×800 resolution, Tegra 2 processor inside, front and rear facing camera, USB port to host USB flash drives and other USB-equipped devices, an IR port to control Bravia TVs and a unique wrap design that tries to mimick feel of holding an open paperback book.
Sony could launch the tablet in September for $599.
