The amount of tablets being produced this year is making the competition a very high standard which means the newer models will only get better. Today we have news of Sony’s attempt at being successful in the market with one of their first Android tablets the S2.

The company recently gained approval from the FCC for their Ericsson F5521gw modem which supports up to 21Mbps HSPA+ speeds. This means we could be seeing the device released soon, most likely around the original time of release which is this fall.

The modem also supports 850MHz and 1900MHz 3G bands which AT&T uses. The other main feature on these Sony S2s is their removable Li-Ion 3080 mAh batteries, though it is unknown how many hours of life you will be getting out of the device as of yet.

As well as its 5.5” dual touchscreens this tablet has, it will also include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. It is thought that it will also be released with the single screen companion the S1. Check out the article at Slashgear for more about the Sony S2.
