Sony’s dual-screen S2 Android 3.0 tablet wins FCC approval with support for AT&T’s 3G bands


It looks like those of you waiting for Sony’s dual-screen S2 Android tablet may not have to wait much longer.  Today, the S2 won approval from the FCC, suggesting that the device is close to a launch in the US.  The S2 won approval for GSM 850 and 1900 bands, as well as WCDMA bands II and V.  These bands correspond to AT&T’s service in the US, a good indication that the S2 will be offered by AT&T.

The S2 is an Android 3.0 tablet with a unique dual-screen design.  Each of the S2’s screens measure 5.5-inches with a 1024 x 480 resolution.  The device also features a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and camera.  The S2 is PlayStation Certified, although its not yet clear how games will work on the device’s two screens.

Sony hasn’t released an official launch date for the S2, but today’s FCC approval is a good sign that we will be seeing the device soon.
