More Sony S1 and S2 tablet specs revealed

We like stone-cold specs here at Tech Digest, but the Sony S1 and S2 tablets, while intriguingly shaped, have left us frustratingly in the dark when it comes to what’s lurking under the hood.

A little light can be shed on the Android-touting tablets today, after a Cnet source uncovered a few tidbits about their inner components.

Startling with the slope-lipped S1, both 16GB and 32GB models will be available, as well as 3G and Wi-Fi versions, and cheaper Wi-Fi only models. An SD card reading slot will feature, while the 9.4 inch display will feature TruBlack and Bravia technologies also seen in Sony’s TVs.

Moving on to the curious, clamshell S2, again 16GB and 32GB versions will be available, but only the premium 3G and Wi-Fi version will go onsale.

Honeycomb is the expected Android build of choice, and we’d hazard a guess at Xross Media Bar navigation controls, as seen on the PS3, PSP and Sony Bravia TVs, making an appearance too.
