Sony Bringing 2 Different Form Factors to Tablet Market

I saw this story on the CNN website and found it intriguing.  Since the arrival of the iPad, everyone has been excited about tablets (including me), but everyone is creating devices that really mimic the iPad in look & feel.  Sony has taken the tablet idea and applied some outside the box thinking to the form factor for 2 devices that will be arriving in the fall.
One is a "folded magazine" design while the other is smaller and features a "clam shell" look.  Both of these have great aesthetic appearance.  I'm curious to see how they sell.  Sometimes taking a step outside is a good thing and sometimes it just confuses the consumer.
