They say "better late than never". Sony announced its play in the tablet space over the Easter weekend, unveiling two uniquely shaped Android Honeycomb-powered tablets to rival Apple's dominant iPad and competition from Samsung and Motorola.

Codenamed S1 and S2, Sony's tablets feature custom Sony overlays to complement their unorthodox physical design, plus other unique tweaks including Sony's "Swift" browser for pulling down pages on slow connections. This shouldn't be too much of an issue for Aussie customers, as both the S1 and S2 will ship with HSDPA 3G and Wi-Fi when they launch globally in the third quarter of the year.

S2 looks very interesting than S1 especially the two screens and to do multitasking.

I've said it from day one and I'll say it again: "It's worth the wait for a Sony tablet"!

Now the only question is, how soon can I get my hands on one of these?

Wouldn't it be nice if the S2 was a phone when folded?
