AT&T announces the Sony S2 Android tablet with 4G
As surprising as it may seem, AT&T has officially announced that it would exclusively offer the Sony S2 Android tablet to customers in the US. The news comes less than 24 hours after AT&T unveiled the upcoming release of another new Android device, namely the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.
Unlike Sony’s S1 tablet, which has a 9.4 inch display (and should be available for pre-order in the UK starting September), the S2 has two 5.5 inch screens, each with a 1024 x 480 pixel resolution. It also features a dual-core processor, Wi-Fi, and 4G connectivity – which doesn’t mean it’s an LTE device, but an HSPA+ one.
According to AT&T, the S2 will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
“With its unprecedented, completely portable form factor, the Sony Tablet S2 offers tablet enthusiasts a convenient and unique entertainment experience. Users will be treated to exceptional graphics and the touch-screen capabilities will enable a fast and efficient website experience,” declared David Haight, vice president of business development, AT&T emerging devices.
AT&T didn’t say how much the Sony S2 would cost, and neither when exactly it’s going to be available. It did mention that it’ll offer monthly data plans for the tablet. The S2 will be AT&T’s second 4G tablet, after the webOS-based HP TouchPad.
