The company is likely to showcase two tablets — one with a 9.4 inch screen and the other with two foldable 5.5 inch screens — featuring Android 3.0 operating system.
Sony is soon going to launch two tablets based on Android 3.0 operating system in the Indian market. The devices are codenamed S1 and S2. While S1 has a 9.4 inch screen, S2 has two foldable 5.5 inch screens.

The tablets were announced at the end of April this year and are going to be launched soon. An Indian spokesperson at Sony confirmed this but refused to divulge the date of launch.

Sony India is, however, holding an event in India on June 17 to showcase the products. The announcement came through a teaser on the Sony India website. The exact location or nature of the event has not been disclosed.

S1 is a 9.4 inch tablet with a curved top, much like a folded magazine. It has both front and rear-facing cameras. The device uses a Tegra 2 processor and has a customised user interface over Android 3.0 OS (operating system). It can also be used as a remote control for Sony gear thanks to its integrated infrared port.

The second new tablet from Sony is a dual screen clamshell device called S2. It has a pair of 5.5 inch 1024x480 pixel displays, runs on a Tegra 2 chipset, and has two cameras.

Not much is known about the device but it is one of the most important devices for Sony and the company plans to launch various devices that will connect enterprise hardware with network services like Qriocity, which connects many of Sony's network-enabled devices and also makes it possible for one device to perform as a remote control for another.
