The Apple iPad continues to be the most sought after tablet PC, but other companies are bringing out alternatives for consumers. Sony has announced the S1 and S2 Honeycomb tablet PCs.

Stuart Miles from Pocket-lint is reporting that the two Android powered tablets should be available to consumers across the world during the Fall of this year. The S1 has a 9.4-inch display, and will allow owners to use it to control features on their TV. You will also be able to stream content to TVs, and music to wireless speakers via DLNA.

With the S2 you have twin 5.5-inch displays and will have the same streaming capabilities, but are designed to be more portable. Both devices will be running Android 3.0, and have Wi-Fi, WAN, Sony’s music, eBook, gaming services. There will also be PlayStation Suite and Reader Store.

The TV remote features will for the time being only work with Sony Bravia TVs, and the devices will also be 3G and 4G compatible. The two devices could give the other tablet manufactures something to think about over the coming months leading up to their release. Check out the promotional video of the new Sony tablets below.
