Sony today announced the Xperia Tablet Z in the land of the rising sun. The tablet shares a lot more things with the recently announced Xperia Z smartphone apart from just the name.
To begin with, the tablet borrows quite a few design elements from the Xperia Z. It seems Sony has learnt that in order to sell your product you need to pack the best. And as such this Android 4.1 tablet packs a Qualcomm 1.5GHz APQ8064 quad-core processor along with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB inbuilt storage. The display is a rich 1080p 10.1 inch screen with Mobile Bravia Engine 2.
Not only that but there’s a micro SD slot for expansion, an 8.1 megapixel rear camera, NFC and even LTE. To power all this awesome hardware, a 6000 mAh battery has been provided.
And all this in a body that’s just 6.9 mm thick. Yes, you heard it right, this is the thinnest tablet in the market. And thin always feels light so Sony managed to keep the weight under 495g which only goes on to impress us further.
All we can say is we are mighty impressed with this tablet and the sooner Sony launches it the better it would be for their balance sheets. What’s good today can be obsolete in a matter of weeks. This is what technology has come to. Speaking of which Sony plans to release this tablet in Spring this year atleast in Japan.
