With Sony's anticipated S1 and S2 tablets preparing for an autumn release, the company has been busy readying support documents, some of which went public prematurely this week.

According to the screenshots – grabbed by Carrypad from Sony's support site before their hasty removal – the Sony slabs will ship with the latest Android 3.2.

The company is also set to include a Wi-Fi checker app, as well as Chumby support, Zinio and a music player with SenseMe mode - a system of selecting tunes based on mood.

One shot shows the device using a proprietary adaptor, while another offers a glimpse at Sony's virtual keyboard with numeric keypad.

The company has been relatively silent over the slate's specifications, although sources indicated to Cnet this week that both models will offer 16GB and 32GB versions.

The same insiders said the S1 will come in both Wi-Fi only and 3G + Wi-Fi editions, while the S2 will only offer the latter. Battery life is supposedly "comparable to the iPad 2".
