The tablets, with the official moniker of "Sony Tablet," will become available worldwide starting in the fall.
The S1 has a 9.4-inch display, while the S2 has two 5.5-inch displays that can be "folded," Sony said. The screens on the S2 can be used together as one large screen to browse websites, or separately--for example, checking email on one and using the other as a soft keyboard.
Both tablets will be equipped with the Android 3.0 operating system and be WiFi and WAN (3G/4G) compatible. Sony will also offer access to content via its Qriocity music and movie services and the PlayStation Suite, a framework for downloading and buying PlayStation content on Android tablets.
