Waterproof Sony Xperia Tablet Z announced in Japan: Android Jelly Bean, quad core CPU, 1920 x 1200 display
Sony has officially introduced its first Android Jelly Bean tablet, which – as previously rumored – is called Xperia Tablet Z (model number SGP321).
The Xperia Tablet Z was announced in Japan today, and it’s going to be available there starting this spring, via NTT DoCoMo.
Like the Xperia Z smartphone, the new tablet is dust-proof and waterproof (IPX5, IPX7). It offers many high-end features, including: a 10.1 inch display with 1920 x 1200 pixels, LTE and HSPA connectivity, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n Bluetooth 4.0, 3D surround sound, 8.1MP rear camera, 2.2MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.5GH Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 6,000 mAh battery.
At 266 x 172 x 6.9 mm, the Xperia Tablet Z is the world’s thinnest 10.1 inch tablet. The device will run Android 4.1.2 JB at launch, and it’s probably going to be updated to Android 4.2 not long after that.
As the press images above suggest, the Xperia Tablet Z will be available in two colors versions in Japan: black and white. Sony didn’t say when the new tablet would arrive in other markets. The company also didn’t say how much the device costs – but we should expect its price to be quite high.
