It was only a matter of time before Sony joined the rapidly developing tablet market. Today, they have announced two new tablet devices they plan to be releasing this fall. Code named "S1" and "S2", the tablets will run Android 3.0 and will be Wi-Fi and WAN (3G/4G) compatible.

The "S1" tablet features a 9.5" screen and a wedge-like shape Sony says, "realizes stability and ease of grip as well as a sense of stability and lightness, offering comfortable use for hours." Meanwhile, the "S2" has two 5.5" screens in a clamshell design. 

The dual-screen setup is intriguing. It's hard to judge just from the image (which may not even be the final design) but with 5.5" screens, I would expect it to be very portable and excellent for typing. It could also have some real problems with compatibility. Unusual hardware design is the bane of Android's existence, the other edge of the open-source sword, making it a constant challenge for application designers to make their code work with everything. Add one more to the pile, I guess.
