Sony Xperia Tabet Z to be announced next week in Japan?
Although we’ve only heard about it yesterday, the Sony Xperia Tabet Z might be officially presented as soon as next week.
The tablet has been mentioned briefly on one of NTT DoCoMo’s websites. And it looks like it’s going to be announced by the largest Japanese mobile carrier on January 22.
Apparently, the Xperia Tabet Z is part of the carrier’s spring 2013 line-up of devices, and customers will be able to check it out at select DoCoMo locations between January 23 and January 27. The webpage that mentions the Tablet Z is no longer online, but we can still see it here, thanks to Google Cache.
Most probably, Sony will announce the Xperia Tablet Z for other markets at MWC 2013 next month. It’s said that the new tablet runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, being waterproof and dustproof, and featuring: a 10.1 display with 1920 x 1200 pixels, LTE connectivity, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and a 6,000 mAh battery. Its case should be only 6.9mm thin.
Sony’s other two new Android Jelly Bean devices announced this year – the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL smartphones – have three color versions each. So maybe the Xperia Tablet Z will also come in more colors. We’ll see.
