Sony Xperia Tablet Z launches March 22nd in Japan

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z, which we ogled at Mobile World Congress, will start its worldwide rollout in Japan later this month. Available on NTT DoCoMo’s LTE network, the slate will launch on March 22nd following a pre-order period starting March 9th.

The Tablet Z will be available in both black and white finishes when it goes on sale for an unspecified price (expected to be near $900 US). The tablet boasts a waterproof, dustproof design, 1080p display, quad-core processing with 2GB RAM, and a super thin profile ( a mere 6.9mm).

Expect the Japanese release to be followed with a greater availability across the globe. Sony has not detailed their exact plans, though.

    nice looking table but i think is not going sell much at that price.

    • HotInEER

      That’s the price in Japan. In the US it will be $499 for the 16gb and $599 for the 32gb version. I love this tablet, but even at those prices it’s too high. $299 and $399 and these would have flown off the shelf.

        of course they would fly off the shelf at $300?? the cheapest that tablet should be is $500 I couldn’t imagine it being any cheaper.
