Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet now available for pre-order, begins shipping on May 3rd



After taking a look at the tablet during this year’s Mobile World Congress 2014, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablets are now officially up for pre-order. You’ll find them direct from Sony for $500 (16GB), and $600 (32GB) and before you pull back, remember these are premium Android tablets, offering not only top of the line specs, but Sony’s amazing attention to detail — including front facing stereo speakers. Just so you know what you’re getting in terms of specs, here’s what the Xperia Z2 Tablets offer:

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

Sony’s managed to cram all these specs into a tablet that is barely .25-inches thin and weighs only 15.5 ounces. While Sony touts the Z2 Tablet as waterproof, water resistant is probably a better term. The tablet is rated IP55 against water jets, and IP58 for water submersion. If you need a better understanding at what all of this means, don’t forget to check out our post talking about IP ratings and what they really mean. The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is available in both white or black, with pre-orders shipping out on May 3rd. For those interested, links provided below.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Is this T-Mobile LTE compatible?

    1. These are WiFi only. No sight of LTE models yet.

    2. Wait for individual carriers to announce LTE variants of the Z2 Tablet in the coming weeks. This tablet is too gorgeous to pass up.

  2. Pre-ordered a white 32GB. Students get 10% discount as well!

    1. Ah, nice! Seriously, one sexy and super premium tablet. Only thing missing is the Xperia Z2 (my next phone, I think).

      1. I only wish it had a pen of some sort. Note 10.1 spoiled me for any other tablet.

        1. Of some sort? You can always get a capacitive stylus. They work with pretty much any tablet or phone.

          I’ve had two devices with active stylii. I too wish all tablets came with the functionality included. It pretty much turns a tablet into a sheet of paper, with a capacitive stylus being a crayon compared to the sharp-engineering pencil active stylus.

          1. Word. I’d say a whiteboard marker rather.

      2. Do they use that crappy TFT screen that they use for all of their phones? It is terrible. I sent my Xperia XL back in exchange for an LG G2 because I got jealous of my wife’s screen.

    2. AND, and… dat micro SD slot!

  3. Dat price..!! Wish i could afford… :( LG G Pad 8 for half the price will serve me just fine though… :)

    1. Although I’m with you on the price, but please never, never compare LG to Sony.

      1. Right. LG kicks Sony out of the water, and if you meant other-wise you lack Android knowledge.
        Just because LG’s tablet is lesser than Sony’s, doesn’t mean LG doesn’t kick Sony’s ass in the smartphone zone, which to be honest, matters a whole lot more.

        1. Derp

          1. Says the man with the name

        2. Oh please, not another “ya have no knowledge dude”. Android is absolutely irrelevant in this discussion. Sony’s style and taste is impeccable, even Apple consulted with them, about phones and about laptops. LG’s taste is a little more, uhm, el cheapo.

          1. With bezels bigger than my computer’s

  4. Looks great, and the front-facing stereo speakers sound like a great improvement over my 2 year old tablet … but I don’t think that’s enough to get me to shell out $500

    I believe the replacement cycle for tablets is much more akin to a desktop/laptop PC than it is a smartphone. I haven’t gotten any slowdown (unlike with my phone).

  5. $500 and $600? Sorry, not for me. I can now get full-blown Windows 8 tablets for less that.

  6. Save $50-$60 with a student email address.

  7. Hmm, are you sure these WiFi models have 4G LTE?
