Sources have been telling us since the news of the PlayStation certified smartphone announcement that Sony was also planning to follow Apple into the tablet market. While Sony confirmed that a tablet was in development, not much was known until now.
The new tablet from Sony is called the S1 and is PlayStation certified, which is no surprise. It will use a customized version of the Android Honeycomb OS and will feature the Qriocity media platform, as already seen on the PS3 for music in Europe.
The tablet is said to be sporting the Nvidia Tegra 2 and will utilize an innovative design that is said to make typing and using the device easier. The word is that it will be here for the holidays with a September release likely at this point. No clue yet on what it will cost, but it will not be cheap, according to our sources.
