Since after the launch of Apple iPad 2, many companies has rolled out there own tablet but none proved to be as catchy as the gold standard iPad. This time,  Sony has also joined the same race and has announced to launch two new Android 3.0 HoneyComb tablets by the end of 2011. Sony has named them Sony S1 and S2.

Sony has taken a step ahead from all tablet and introduced two unique tablets which are entirely different from each other in design. Sony S1 is a slate type 9.4 inch tablet whereas S2 is a dual-screen tablet which packs two 5.5-inch screens. Both these tablets runs on android HoneyComb.

Sony S1 has a strange rolled shape and an "off center of gravity design" that lets you hold it more firmly. It packs a Tegra 2 chip which will allow it to handle HD content playback. It also has an IR port for AV controls, DLNA support and the ability to work with Sony's Bravia line of TVs. It should also let you access the Playstation Suite games.

Sony S2 has two 1,024 x 480 screens, which allows you to use two separate screens for two different apps or combine them into one large screen for web browsing etc.

Both tablets have focus on the Sony's Qriocity platform which integrates music, video, e-book and other services. Not much information is revealed by the company yet about the tablets, but it is rumoured to launch first in Japan and then globally. Stay tuned, as we will keep you updated with it.

Windows 8 will drop Blue Screen of Death?

Posted: 28 Apr 2011 02:03 PM PDT

We're all waiting for the next generation of Windows – Windows 8 with anticipation, and we have some good news. According to the leaked version, Windows 8 won't have the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSoD), but instead, it will be a Black Screen of Death.

As we all know, Blue Screen of Death was an infamous part of all Windows operating system, and although it has been replaced in the early builds of Vista with a Red Screen of Death, Microsoft reverted back to its standard BSoD. Credit for information about new BSoD goes to user canouna, from My Digital Life forum, who first noticed the appearance of new Black Screen of Death on the leaked Windows 8 (7955) build.

Unlike Blue Screen of Death, Black Screen of Death will inform you about the error in a single line and doesn't look so 80′s like, well at least for an error screen.

This is an interesting change, and although the new Black Screen of Death looks better, we'd rather have a Windows that won't be so proned to running into errors and failures.
