We got a hands-on look at the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet during this year’s Mobile World Congress 2014 and had nothing but good things to say about the tab. In terms of build quality, the Xperia Z2 Tablet was one of the most premium and sleek Android tablets money can buy and starting tomorrow, you can officially pre-order the 4G LTE equipped model from Verizon Wireless.

A shift allegiance for Sony who traditionally makes available their devices on carriers like T-Mobile or AT&T, the Verizon exclusive Xperia Z2 Tablet will run $600 (or $500 with a 2-year agreement). Here’s a quick look at the specs the Xperia Z2 tablet offers:

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet specs

  • 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 Triluminos display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.3GHz quad-core CPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage with microSD slot
  • 8.1 megapixel rear camera
  • 2.2 megapixel front facing camera
  • 6,000mAh battery
  • 4G LTE
  • Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, MHL 3.0, and WiFi
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Stereo front facing speakers

Sony says the Xperia Z2 will be in Verizon stores on July 17th, and if you make haste, you can even get a free pair of Sony’s MDR-NC31EM noise cancelling headphones (while supplies last). Sony’s North American president Ravi Nookala says their new relationship with Verizon is key to Sony building momentum in the US and if rumors prove correct, this is a just a hint of things to come (see Sony Xperia Z2 leaks).
