We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Sony has officially launched its first two Android-powered tablets, the Sony Tablet S and Tablet P.

First up is the Sony Tablet S. Available mid-September it sports a 9.4in touchscreen backed up by a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. Its asymmetric design – which Sony reckons will make it easier to use on a flat surface – weighs in at 598g. A 3G-enabled (16GB) version will join the Wi-Fi (16 or 32GB) version in November.

Coming later in November, the Sony Tablet P is a folding, dual-screen design weighing in at 372g and also featuring a NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, coming with 3G as standard. When its two 5.5in touchscreens are folded together it's just a pocket-friendly 79 x 180 x 26mm.

Both tablets have 5MP and 0.3MP cameras plus an SD/microSD card slot, as well access to content from Sony's new Music Unlimited service. Wi-Fi models are loaded with Android 3.1 (upgradable to 3.2), while the 3G versions will come with Android 3.2 from the off.

The Sony Tablet S will be €479, while the Sony Tablet P will be a hefty €599, though actual UK prices aren't on offer just yet.

Both will be available exclusively from Curry's & PC World and John Lewis, available to pre-order now.
