Those planning to attend the IFA 2011 that is slated to be held in Berlin, early next month, would probably do so with more vigor now. Sony, who would be unveiling its S1and S2 tablets closely before the event, will be, according to reports, unveiling four versions of the S1 alone.
The four versions include 16GB Wi-Fi only; 16GB Wi-Fi and 3G, 32GB Wi-Fi; and 32GB Wi-Fi and 3G. The same variations however, haven’t been announced for the S2. For now, the S2 will be made available in 16GB and 32GB models, wherein both will include 3G and Wi-Fi, and not separate variant versions of each. The S1, a 9.4-inch IPS display featuring tablet is being planned to be marketed as a product for the homebody, according to reports. The features that are largely spoken about include PS3 connectivity, infrared remote features, allowing the users to control TVs, blu-ray players, among other devices. The battery life of the S1, although not fleshed out very clearly, has been pegged at the same level as that of the iPad, according to reports. We will also know the actual names of the tablets, which have till now been referred to as S1 and S2.
