Apple iPad 2 Challenge From Sony S1 PlayStation Android Tablet

The tablet seems to be the big mobile product these days and at the top of the game sits Apple with their Apple iPad and soon to be released Apple iPad 2, but Android is mounting a considerable challenge in the tablet arena.

Well Apple isn’t going to get it all their own way because the rumour is according to an article over on PC World by way of the guys over at Engadget, Sony just might be upping the stakes in the tablet wars by delivering an Android PlayStation gaming tablet to challenge the Apple iPad 2.

We already know of course about the PlayStation certified Sony Ericsson Xperia Play smartphone, the first PlayStation certified handset, and is the unnames source of Engadget’s turns out to be right we may see a PlayStation certified Android tablet at some stage.

Word is Sony has codenamed the device the “S1” and is a 9.4-inch tablet sporting Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS and will apparently be focused on music, games, videos and ebooks.

The image above is Engadget’s mock-up of the “wrap” design of the “S1” PlayStation Android tablet, which apparently was described to them as “beautiful, the best thing,” and the “S1” will be roughly the same size and weight as the Apple iPad and will have a Tegra 2 processor.

When it comes to release date and price, apparently the S1 is scheduled for a September release although that could slip, and price wise the S1 was originally price to match the Apple iPad but has been increased to $599 for the WiFi only version.

So there it is, a PlayStation certified Android Honeycomb tablet on the horizon to challenge the Apple iPad 2, but do you think a PlayStation tablet could take down Apple’s next generation iPad?
