Dual screen tablets are the next gadget fad

Engadget is reporting that Sony working on a dual screen Android tablet. They don't have much in the way of technical details, but they were told that the new tablet, known as the "S2" internally, closely resembles an oval cylinder when closed. It's supposed to use a tegra 2CPU and have Wifi, 3G, and a pair of cameras.

I might be a little early in calling this a fad, but I don't think so. NEC showed off their dual screen communicator at CES 2011. Toshiba had one on the market last year (briefly). And now Sony is supposed to be working on one.

I think we'll see at least 4 or 5 more before the end of 2011.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
