Sony's PSN and Qriocity network outage may be ongoing, but the company's pressing forward on the mobile hardware front. Today in Tokyo senior VP Kunimasa Suzuki showed off two Android-based tablets, known for now as S1 and S2. Both are PlayStation-enabled, run Honeycomb, and are based on NVIDIA's Tegra 2 dual-core chip. S1 is built around a single 9.4-inch screen, while the clamshell S2 sports dual 5.5-inch screens. Both models should be shipping this fall; MSRP is expected to be in the $6-700 range.
If the thought of a mobile PlayStation appeals to you, but the idea of a phone with a dedicated PS2-style controller pad seemed too much of a good thing, one of these tablets might be just what the doctor ordered.
