Sony tablets reportedly scheduled for a September launch across Europe

The Sony S1 and S2 tablets expected to hit the market before end of summer

The upcoming Sony S1 and S2 tablets could be coming to European markets by the end of September, according to tipsters from Engadget.

The site claims to have received a private note from Sony’s marketing group highlighting a September release window “for an unnamed tablet from the company,” likely the recently revealed S1 and S2 tablets. By “unnamed,” we assume that the company will soon be revealing more appropriate names for the two tablets at some point in the future.

Sony CEO Howard Stringer had previously confirmed a tablet launch for this summer or fall, however, so a September release is definitely not farfetched. In the U.S., the tablets have recently reached the FCC.

Additionally, pre-orders for the two tablets will reportedly begin sometime around August, so launch prices for the devices may be disclosed around that time. Other than that, we will have to wait and see how well Sony’s first tablet offerings will stand in the face of competing Android and iOS devices.

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.
