S2 dual-screen Android tablet has been spotted crossing through the FCC as the Sony SGPT211US, complete with 3G/UMTS support for AT&T's bands. The tablet, announced back in April along with its single-screen sibling the Sony S1, is also listed as having a removable 3080 mAh li-ion battery. The particular modem Sony has used, at least in the tested model, is Ericsson's F5521gw, capable of up to 21Mbps HSPA+ speeds on compatible networks. AT&T, of course, has been using HSPA+ for its intermediary 4G coverage, as it prepares its LTE network. There's also 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth, just as you'd expect from an Android slate. Still no word exactly on when, beyond Fall 2011, the S2 will go on sale. [via Engadget]

rumored June 8 release of the HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile USA, but it has thrown up a sign-up page for those wanting more information. The tri-tone smartphone has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, HSPA+ connectivity and a 4.3-inch qHD display. There's also an 8-megapixel camera on the back with autofocus and a dual-LED flash. HTC has reworked the camera app to minimize start-up lag, so that there's less chance of missing impromptu shots. Meanwhile the Sensation will debut HTC Sense 3.0, the latest version of the company's interface, complete with a new homescreen launcher.
