When our Matt got hands-on with the S1 and S2, they were only running Honeycomb 3.0, but judging by some leaked — and then pulled — screenshots on Sony's site, 3.2 might make an appearance.

These tablets, codenamed S1 and the S2, are why we need Sony - the Sony we love - in a world where almost every gadget of consequence is effectively a blank slate for software.
Finally! These new pics and video are the best look we've had yet at Sony's upcoming tablets, especially the dual-screen S2. And Sony has its reputation on the line here: it wants to be the number 2 tablet maker by 2012. So take a look for yourself, think they have a shot?
Sony, Rube Goldberg-style videos are meant to be fast, exciting! And fast. Unless...unless you're trying to manage expectations about the S1 and S2 tablets' processor speed? Oh, you teases. I may as well go watch that OkGo video again, for kicks.
Sony announced their dual-screened S2 tablet today. It's not the only twin-screen tablet, but considering recent ill-conceived efforts from the likes of Acer, Toshiba and Kyocera, we're a little sceptical. With the S2, Sony's basically cut a 10-inch screen in half and stuck a hinge in between. How much of a benefit can two screens provide over one?
Focusing on the things that matter most to Sony - style and media - their first two tablets are running Android 3.0 (yes, Honeycomb) and come in two very different form-factors. You'll recognise the familiar shape of the S1, which measures 9.4 inches, whereas the S2 is a sort-of DS-type clamshell, with dual screens that both measure 5.5 inches.
