Sony’s new range of Android tablet devices are to launch in the Autumn, Sony has announced.

The uniquely designed iPad rivals – codenamed the S1 and S2 – will run with Google's Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system.

The curved S1 offers a 9.4-inch touchscreen, while the S2 boasts two separate 5.5-inch displays that fold up in a clam-shell design.

They will also offer developers PlayStation Suite support, meaning an influx of games could appear on the devices.

PlayStation Suite is a cross-device digital platform that developers can build content for.

Games made on PlayStation Suite can be released on the upcoming PSP2 and other Android 3.0+ smartphones, such as the Xperia Play.

Sony’s new tablets will add to the growing list of products supporting PlayStation Suite. However, with its buttonless form-factor, developers will have to rethink control layouts if they are to port PSP2 and Xperia Play games to the new tablets.
