Sony teases its S1 and S2 tablets (video)

Sony has come out with the first teaser video in a series of five of its S1 and S2 tablets, which are due for a release later this year in September. The video (below) shows the S1 and S2 in a lighter vein, without spilling out too much info, but does manage to get your vote of confidence. Watch out for Sony’s elaborate Rube Goldberg machine.

Though there isn’t much info available on the two devices yet, we do know that the S1 will be a 9.5-incher and that the S2 will sport a couple of 5.5-inch screens (yup, its a dual screen tablet). Both of the devices are expected to run on Android’s Honeycomb OS and will feature a Tegra 2 chip each. For photographers, the S1 will feature two cameras while the S2 will have only one.

Here’s another video from Sony released back in May showcasing the S1 and S2 for your viewing pleasure:

Dell Streak 10 to get Honeycomb, MeeGo a no-no

There was cause for concern lately, with many people thinking Dell will just kick in an aging smartphone-specific OS for their Dell Streak 10 tablet. But the fears didn’t last long as Dell confirmed the Streak 10 will run Android’s latest offering – Honeycomb.

It was also interesting to note an executive’s statement that the company’s other tablet – a 10.1-inch Windows device – will also get the same body as the Streak 10. When asked broadly about the company’s tablet strategy with regards to other operating systems, this was the answer Dell had on tap:

For tablets, it’s Android Honeycomb and Windows, and we have customers with a preference for either one. We can create platforms that share a great degree of hardware commonality that can run both — or either — operating system, and we don’t see any other options that are worthy of consideration.

This surely, indirectly, takes MeeGo out of the equation for Dell. At least for the time being.
