iZone International: Is Sony working on PlayStation Tablet?

Sony already has experience in working with Android, and with the launch of the Xperia Play, has shown that they are capable of blending their popular gaming console with the phone experience. It’s now being suggested by analysts that the company is also looking at a Playstation certified Android tablet, a large counterpart to their latest smartphone announcement.

It has been reported on technology blogs like Engadget that Sony is working on a gaming and media tablet, codenamed the S1, which will have a 9.4 inch screen and run a custom layer on top of Android 3.0. The Honeycomb-based custom skin will be based around a combination of inputs from the Vaio, Reader, PlayStation and Ericsson divisions.

As a theoretically PlayStation certified device, it will probably have the same PlayStation Suite support as the Xperia Play, and be cross-compatible with the new PSP successor, the NGP, and also the Xperia Play.

Engadget also reported that the tablet would have a fairly unique “wrap” design to mimic a paperback folded over, and it will reportedly be powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2.

Sony hinted that it had a PlayStation-linked tablet in development at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month, when President Kaz Hirai said that the firm’s strategy “encompasses driving the development of a variety of new strategic products and services, including tablets, currently in development”.
