Sony's custom Honeycomb UI leaked Sony's upcoming S1 and S2 tablets will run a custom Honeycomb UI, and pics of the OS have leaked today.
From the pics, the OS doesn't look too heavily altered, but with some additions.

Each tablet will run Android 3.2, with a custom launcher that adds quick access to network connections and access to favorites.

The app drawer will come standard but include Chumby and Zinio, apps for streaming photos, social feeds, weather, stocks.

Additionally, there is a custom keyboard and a music player that looks similar to Google Music.

Looks like a lot of bloatware and not much else.

And in what fantsey world would you expect anything else from Sony? If the device is good that the only option is to hack and use as you want, but better options are most likely available.

Sony is known for being very slow with the few updated they do put out. I don't know why they are still in business. They come up with awesome technology but legal and management kill it every time. If management was smart, they would be the largest most powerful company in the world.
