Sony has decided to rename its upcoming Android-powered Sony S1 and S2 tablets, as the Tablet S and Tablet P.
If rumors are to be believed, the tablets have been recently leaked before the launch, including all the essential information and the release time frame. IBTimes could not confirm the rumours.
Sony announced the tablets in April, but both are now rumored to be launched in September, although AT&T will be carrying the Tablet P exclusively in the U.S., according to a report.
Sony seems to be pulling out all stops for its first venture in the consumer tablet market. According to Engadget report, Tablet S is PlayStation Certified. Sony has also announced that the new device will have full and official access to PlayStation stores and network services. It is not known whether its brother, the Sony Tablet P, will also have this feature.
With a new PlayStation tablet prepared for gaming and media use, Sony must set its tablet apart from many competitors.
The company has not disclosed pricing details, but rumors are already floating about the Web.
The Tablet S offers a 9.4 panel with1280 x 768 pixel resolution, NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB RAM memory, two storage options and two cameras - 3 MP in front for the video chats and 5 MP at the back.
The Tablet P, features dual 5.5 display, Tegra 2 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB internal memory that is expandable and a 0.3 MP front-facing camera with a microSD slot. Tablet P weights only 370 g, which is much lighter than Tablet S that weights 600 g.
It is for the people to guess as to what S and P stand for, or whether it is in league with following the tradition of Sony Vaio S and P series laptops.
The Sony Tablet P, as well as the S, is expected to hit the global market next month with an announcement possible in the coming week.
The upcoming dual-screen Sony tablet P might have 3G capabilities and is said to come in16GB and 32GB models with WiFi as well.
Just a week after the withdrawal of HP TouchPad from the markets, Sony's Tablets may be a treat for the techies this year.
