Sony, who is struggling in the gaming console market and is desperate to find a slot at the tablet table, is believed to be working on a Windows 7 slider tablet, named the S1 and S2 that are dual screened. The concept has already been called “A Dog”.The S1 is believed to be a PlayStation tablet while the S2 is tipped to be an Android tablet running Android 3.0, and featuring two 5.5-inch displays. The big difference is that both devices closely resemble an oval cylinder when closed – a bit like a flask according to Engadget, who also said that the S2 device will have a Tegra 2 SoC, WiFi, 3G and at least one rear-facing camera, although which way is rear-facing may be hard to tell.

The source told Engadget that Sony is currently working on the Honeycomb OS to make the most of dual display; a prototype device apparently showed Gmail running with the inbox shown on one screen and the open message shown on the other.

Like a lot of projects at Sony the concept appears to be a “little wacky” said one source. Engadget said the two sources they have aren’t exactly enthused by the project, unfortunately; one says that “the whole project is being met with scepticism within Sony.” Meanwhile, the other source “calls the S2 an outright “dog.”” Ouch.
