Sony has announced a brand new Android-based tablet in Japan, called the Xperia Tablet Z. This new tablet is 6.9mm thick and weighs 495g, which makes it the thinnest and lightest 10-inch Android tablet on the market and even thinner than smaller tablets such as the iPad mini.
On the front the Tablet Z has a 10.1-inch, 1920 x 1200 resolution ‘Reality Display’ powered by Mobile Bravia Engine 2. The design language of the tablet is similar to the recent Sony Xperia handsets, such as the Xperia Z. Also, just like the Xperia Z, the Xperia Tablet Z happens to be dust and water resistant.
On the back the Xperia Tablet Z has an 8 megapixel Exmor R camera with backlit CMOS sensor. On the inside, the Xperia Tablet Z has a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage space with microSD card slot, NFC, LTE and Sony’s S-Force virtual 3D surround sound technology.
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z will be sold in black and white. No pricing and availability details have been announced so far.
