A few days ago we started our watch for a new tablet device from Sony to complement their Sony Xperia Z smartphone. The wait did not take long as Sony has announced plans to release the Sony Xperia Tablet Z to the Japanese market this spring. The 10.1-inch tablet will have a full 1080p HD screen running on top of a quad-core Snapdragon S4 cpu running at 1.5GHz.
Sony has packed some other nice features into the tablet including an 8.1MP camera that incorporates some of their technology like Exmor R for mobile for grabbing stunning photos, notably in low light situations. Sony also incorporates S-Force Front Surround 3D sound, NFC capability, and a level of water- and dustproofing. The device will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is LTE capable. Initial color choices include black and white.
Sony has not released a specific date of availability nor have they released any information regarding other global markets where the device may eventually be released.
