At this year's CES, Sony announced its new flagship smartphones Xperia Z and Xperia ZL, and soon after the launch they were a complete hit among fans and critiques alike. But after the talks of possibility of a Sony Xperia Tablet Z started making rounds. To make things official, Sony has just announced the thinnest and lightest Android slate, its Xperia Tablet Z.
It is a 6.9mm thick and 495 gram weighing tablet. Tablet Z can be considered a 10 inch derivative of Sony Xperia Z. It also runs on a Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and a 1080p screen with Bravia Engine 2 and just like Xperia Z, it is also water and dust resistant. It has 32 GB of internal memory which can be expanded using the given micro SD card slot. It is equipped with an 8 MP shooter with Exmor R backlit sensor.
The specs are quite interesting and powerful but there is one catch - Tablet Z is only available in Japanfor now. Although pricing or availability haven't been made official yet but one thing is sure, the slate will be available in both black and white colors.
The Tablet market is still a lucrative and an untapped one. Lets hope, Sony decides to bring the tablet to the rest of the world and announces its world-wide availability during MWC 2013.
