Sony Xperia Tablet Z officially unveiled with Full HD display, only 6.9mm thick


A couple weeks removed from announcing their Xperia Z flagship smartphone, Sony has unveiled their next Android tablet. The Sony Xperia Tablet Z debuted in Japan and brings a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200, enough for 1080p full HD and then some. But that’s not even the most impressive bullet point.

While a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU from Qualcomm is nice, as is 2GB RAM and an 8MP camera, it’s the slate’s 6.9mm thickness that will turn heads. The measurement makes the Xperia Tablet Z the world’s thinnest in its size class while still managing to pack a 6,000mAh battery.

The waterproof, dustproof tablet will run Android 4.1 out of the box. Exact pricing and release details haven’tbeen revealed, but an LTE-enabled version of the device is likely headed to Japan’s NTT DoCoMo. A more general availability is expected to be announced at a later date.

  1. That’s one beautiful tablet. Although seeing SONY label in the corner rather than centered is weird for an eye of the brand’s fan.

  2. Might be my next tablet. Had to get rid of the infinity due to a very choppy experience. Hope this has expandable storage

    1. That was one of the things why I chose Note 10.1 over Infinity.

  3. If not too expensive this is defo in the running as my next tablet. Hopefully will have WiFi Direct – miracast aswell.

    1. Gotta warn you though – Sony is really bad update-wise, still. But that’s understandable, because they heavily customize Android. Plus, knowing Sony, this thing will start selling only after someone else will have been selling the same hardware for like 3-6 months.

      1. Tell me about it, Still waiting for Sony to pull there finger out & update my Xperia S, Cant wait until April? This looks like it is skinned less, well I hope so for updates.

    2. Really temped to get it as well, but I expect it being too expensive (prolly $700+) to justify buying it. Mainly due to it having LTE, that usually ups the price of tablets considerably.
      Ironically it is due to its weak battery very likely not really good as mobile tablet, so LTE doesn’t make that much sense on it.

  4. Nice tablet, hope it won’t be priced like the high end VAIO notebooks
