They are hot business since Apple proved that people will buy needless, oversized electronics. So of course Sony's got something in the pipeline. A rumour on Engadget hints that Sony's actively developed a tablet touted the "S1", which will run on a custom version of Honeycomb Android, while using the Qriocity media service.

Of course, the other big property in Sony's convergence initiative is the PlayStation Suite, and Engadget furthers that the device will be PlayStation-certified just like Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play. In fact, Engadget adds that the unit will come pre-loaded with some PSone games readily installed.

It has a wrap design to mimic ¬ďan open paperback stuffed into the back pocket, or a magazine folded backward upon itself such that only a single page is visible to read," making the device easier for touch typing.

The device is rumoured to launch in September.
