Sony has today announced the launch of the recently rumoured Sony Xperia Tablet Z which arrives with a 10.1-inch display which is powered by the Sony Mobile Bravia Engine 2, also found on the Sony Xperia smartphones nowadays. The Xperia Tablet Z has currently been announced only for the Japanese market and there is no information as to when it will be announced internationally but MWC is not too far.
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z was expected to take design cues from the recently announced Sony Xperia Z and Xperia ZL smartphone and we can clearly see the design elements present in the Tablet Z.
The Tablet Z’s 10.1 inch display arrives with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor coupled with 2 GB RAM. Internal storage is pegged at 32 GB which will be expandable using a microSD slot.
There is an 8.1 MP Exmor R back-illuminated camera on the rear of the Tablet Z while there is no information on the front facing camera. Going by the connectivity options, the Xperia Tablet Z packs in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and even LTE on-board. And all of these is packed into a slender 6.9mm thin body and the tablet weighs 495 grams. The battery of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z is pegged to be 6000 mAh which seems to be decent enough.
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z will be available in two color options: Black and White and now that the tablet is official in Japan, we could see Sony showcasing it at the Mobile World Congress which is scheduled for the end of February.
