Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z will become available in Japan on March 22. That’s true for the LTE model sold by NTT Docomo, that country’s largest carrier. The price will be around 85,470 yen, which amounts to approximately $914, €703, or £607. Quite a handful, then.
Pre-orders for this version of Sony’s newest tablet are set to start on March 9, so in just a couple of days.
The Wi-Fi-only variation will only be out on April 13, and it will not have an antenna so support for mobile TV won’t be available.
In case you’re wondering, Japan is going to be the first country in which the Xperia Tablet Z will be released. Elsewhere in the world, this device is expected to land sometime during the second quarter of this year (so from April until June). Hopefully while travelling from Japan to other places it will see its price cut by quite a margin, otherwise it’s going to be priced out of reach for many consumers.
The Xperia Tablet Z is Sony’s big tablet push for this year, and it certainly comes with decent enough specs, as well as being water and dust proof.
