The rumors of the computer environment give it almost for sure: Sony would be working on a tablet with a strong vocation for games, able to counteract the leadership of the iPad in the sector.
There is no doubt that home product growth Apple is creating many headaches for the Japanese company: a versatile system, able to run games with complex graphics and equipped with its own built-in distribution and sales system: you have to bang your head against the wall.
The reaction could be called S1: this is the code name of the project. Behind, a tablet based on Android 3.0 Honeycomb, with a 9-inch touch monitor (1280x800 resolution), Tegra2 processor, two cameras (front and back) capable of shooting videos.
The anti iTunes? Already located: Qriocity, an 'ecosystem' capable of distributing games, music, ebooks and (perhaps) films just like the Cupertino program.
The relaunch date is scheduled for September 2011: the indicative price around € 500. Combined with the rumors about the health of Steve Jobs, this news could draw a stalemate scenario for Apple, with an attempt by its competitors to erode its market. For us the problem is relative: the tablets are already history, we are focused on what will be next.
