CNET has learned some new details on Sony's upcoming S1 and S2 tablets.
A source familiar with the company's plans for the Android devices tells us that four versions of the S1 will be available at launch: 16GB Wi-Fi only; 16GB Wi-Fi and 3G; 32GB Wi-Fi; and 32GB Wi-Fi and 3G. The S2 will come in 16GB and 32GB models that have both Wi-Fi and 3G, but no separate Wi-Fi-only variant like the S1, the source says. Those desiring more capacity will be pleased to know that the S1 tablet has a full-size SD memory card reader onboard for additional storage.
The source also pointed out that the S1 features an 9.4-inch IPS display with TruBlack and Bravia display technologies.

The battery life of the S2 is unknown, but could possibly suffer from the dual-screen setup.
