What do you get when you mix a Rube Goldberg Machine, one cup of Android, two spoons of Sony tablet, a bit of Honeycomb on top and a whole lot of crazy? You get the two videos below. Brought to you by the mad, creative and awesome people at Sony’s ad department.
The company is currently in the process of hyping its two Honeycomb tablets, the S1 and S2, prior to release. They’re doing this with a series of mini-episodes on YouTube. There’s only one episode (and the prologue) so far; apparently, the videos are about two tablets that fall in love while they ride on top of a Rube Goldberg Machine. Or something like that. I’m not entirely sure.
The two tablets were actually announced back in April, but it looks like Sony’s almost ready to sell them now. The S1 is almost a replica of every other Honeycomb tablet currently on the market. It has “Android 3.0 Honeycomb, a Tegra 2 processor, a 9.4-inch display, WiFi and WAN (3G/4G) connectivity, and both front and rear-facing cameras.” The S1 does have one feature that sets it apart from the crowd, and that’s its somewhat weird look. It’s “meant to provide comfort while holding, as well as giving it a lighter feeling.” Sounds alright by us.
The second tablet, the S2, keeps the crazy coming with a folding screen a la Kyocera Echo. Each screen measures 5.5-inches, and it borrows all features its big brother has. For you gamers out there, both tablets are PlayStation Certified and will launch with the PlayStation Suite.
Without further ado, I give you the craziest product video you’ll see this week.
