Officially announced earlier this week in Japan, where NTT DoCoMo is going to sell it starting March, the Sony Xperia Tablet Z might arrive in Europe soon.
Verkkokauppa, the largest online retailer in Finland, is taking pre-orders for the Tablet Z, asking €799.90 for a unit (32GB, LTE plus Wi-Fi). That’s certainly a high price, being close to what you have to pay for Apple’s most expensive iPad (iPad 4 3G 64GB – €829). But the retailer mentions that this price in unconfirmed, so it will probably be a bit lower when the tablet arrives in stock.
Update: Verkkokauppa has removed the Xperia Tablet Z from its website, but we can still see it was there:
The Xperia Tablet Z is the thinnest 10.1 inch tablet ever, measuring 266 x 172 x 6.9 mm. like the Xperia Z smartphone, which should become available across Europe starting the coming weeks, the tablet is waterproof and dustproof. It runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean (upgradeable to Android 4.2), featuring a 1920 x 1200 pixels display, quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 3D surround sound, 8MP rear camera, 2.2MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, MicroSD card support, and a 6,000 mAh battery.
Sony didn’t confirm the Xperia Tablet Z would be launched worldwide. But that’s probably going to happen anyway.
