Sony S2 passes through the FCC with AT&T 3G support in towAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Sony's dual-screened S2 tablet has been laying pretty low ever since it was introduced in late April, but today the Honeycomb-powered device is back in the headlines after an appearance in the FCC. Going by the model number SGPT211US, the S2 was approved for use with the 850/1900MHz bands that AT&T uses for its 3G network. Of course, that doesn't guarantee that the S2 will ever make it to AT&T's shelves, but it's certainly a possibility.
Although the S2 shares a lot of its specs with other Honeycomb-powered slates currently on the market, like Honeycomb and a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, the fact that it's also got a pair of 5.5-inch 1024x480 displays should help it stand out a bit in the Android tablet crowd. Unfortunately, Sony hasn't said when the S2 will be launching (outside of a vague "fall" timeframe) or how much it'll cost when it does, but you can be sure we'll let you know more when we do. What do you all think of the Sony S2? Does the clamshell tablet have potential or will its unique form factor end up being a turn-off?
