AT&T picks up Sony's S2 tablet as exclusive in US, will offer '4G' data and WiFi hotspot access

New, 11 comments

Sony is being exceedingly polite in letting all the other companies put out Android tablets first: it's been holding the door open since its April announcement of the S1 and S2 tablets. Now AT&T is announcing that at least the dual-screen Sony Tablet S2 (still a codename) will be coming to its network exclusively in the US, with AT&T offering cleverly-branded HSPA+ data in the form of monthly plans. Details are short in AT&T's press release, but there are good odds they'll match up with the just-announced HP TouchPad 4G. AT&T also has Sony's PlayStation Vita in its quickly expanding stable. Sadly, there's still no word on a price or release date for either of Sony's tablets (pre-orders for the S1 will begin in September... in the UK), and the tease is wearing thin -- the S2 was leaked in February of this year.
