Sony on July 13 provided a sneak peek of the two Android 3.0-based tablet devices it announced in late April in Japan, as they progress toward their market debuts later this year. The Wi-Fi-only tablet, code-named S1, and its Wi-Fi and 3G (and eventually 4G)-capable dual-screen folding tablet cousin, code-named S2, were demonstrated at a press meeting held in Sony’s New York offices.
Sony showed off certain tech features it said would differentiate the devices in the market once they are released, while it made two related announcements. One was that AT&T would be the S2’s exclusive U.S. mobile broadband provider; David Haight , vice president of business development for AT&T emerging devices, said his company plans to offer pre-paid and post-paid data plans, with distribution and pricing to be announced at the products’ launch. The other was promoting a developers contest in conjunction with partner Adobe Systems designed to stimulate creation of Adobe AIR applications for the tablets. The contest, the Adobe AIR App Challenge, will award a total of $200,000 in cash prizes. Via: DealerScope.
