File-It-Under: Tablet announcements By: D.F.Skinner!~
Did anyone see this one coming,I didn't(technically there have been tablet rumors running rapid) ,we all know the Sony made a big splash a CES with its Xperia Z smartphone,but a tablet now,yes a tablet.Sony just announced their new 10-inch Xperia Z tablet earlier today in Japan.Judging from all the info I've gathered this is a pretty well constructed tablet that will be running Android 4.1 and it follows the same design as the smartphone,thin in design with squared off corners.
You want specs,the new Sony Xperia Tabet Z has some serious hardware specs included within is a Qualcomm 1.5 GHz quad-core APQ8064 processor, 2GB RAM, 32 GB of storage,a 10.1 -inch1,1,920 x 1,200 display, an 8.1-megapixel Exmor rear camera (who takes pictures with tablets? Anyway), a NFC,LTE connectivity,microSD card expansion (something still not included on the iPad).It has Sony's own innovation the "S"-Force surround sound technology.
The Sony Xperia-Z tablet has the iPad beat in thinness as it sizes up at 6.9mm in thickness, weighs only 495g,this means the Xperia-Z tablet reigns champion as the worlds thinnest 10-inch tablet.Just like the Xperia-Z smartphone,the tablet will also be waterproof and will be dustproof. There is no word from Sony on release date or pricing but I will give you an update in a future entry.
