Sony has been gleefully showing off their new tablets, temporarily named the S1 and S2, at various trade events for a few months now, but there hasn't been any new news since the initial announcement. On Monday, CNET revealed a few more details including that the S1 will come in four models; 16GB WiFi-only, 16GB WiFi/3G, 32GB WiFi-only, and 32GB WiFi/3G. The S1 will feature a 9.4-inch IPS display with TruBlack and Bravia technologies. The AT&T exclusive S2 will be offered as two WiFi-only 16GB and 32GB models.

Early rumors said that Sony was creating their own version of Honeycomb for the tablets, and CNET's source compared the battery life to the iPad 2. We should know more about the devices, like the official names, after the IFA show in Berlin on September 2nd.
