Sony S1 tablet scheduled for this September, will be renamed to Sony Tablet S

The supposed full reveal of the Sony S1 Tablet has been partially leaked with additional hardware features and even a new name

Looks like previous rumors about the Sony S1 tablet launch were right on the mark.

According to Engadget, the single-screen Sony S1 tablet will be coming sometime early September with Android 3.1 and upgradeability to Ice Cream Sandwich when the update is available. Additionally, the “S1” moniker will be dropped in favor of the name “Tablet S”.

Other features of the tablet include a previously mentioned IR blaster, Playstation Certified gaming capabilities, media sharing between DNLA-compatible hardware, front-and-rear cameras and a “TruBlack” screen for reduced glare and presumably deeper blacks.

The exact launch price of the Tablet S is still up in the air and the source makes no mention of the dual-screen Sony S2 tablet. At least one of the tablets should make its full debut by next week either before or at the IFA tech show in Berlin.

Sony revealed its tablet hand earlier this year with two tablets, each with their own unique design and a rough launch date of mid to late 2011.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
