Sony S1 and S2 tablet
There was no shortage of tablets emerging in July, among them the Sony S1 and S2 devices.
The two gadgets have a slightly different spin on the tablet form factor - the S1 has a wedge shape, while the S2 features a folding, clamshell design.

the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550
silicon.com took a look at a more traditional tablet last month - the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550.
The slate is aimed firmly at business users with a Microsoft infrastructure and runs Windows 7. In a nod to the heritage of the tablet, the Stylistic Q550 is designed to be used with a stylus.
