Sony officially announced the Sony Xperia Tablet Z today and it looks to be carrying all of the same specs leaked from last week’s tweets. There are a few important additions you should know about however.
Here are the specs for the Sony Xperia Tablet Z:
- 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display with Mobile Bravia Engine 2
- 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor
- 32GB storage (with microSD card slot for expandable storage)

- 495 grams
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z will be available in both black and white. The battery included with the Tablet Z is a little smaller compared to other tablets, however this tablet will include the same battery saving technology as the Sony Xperia Z, so you can expect your tablet to have up to 4x more battery life in standby mode compared to competing tablets.
There’s no info yet on pricing and availability, but all of that should be released at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
This tablet is very impressive and it’s a great follow-up to Sony’s flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z.
2013 looks like its going to be a wonderful year for Sony, especially with all of the hype it’s getting for the Sony Xperia Z. It looks like they’re going to take the smartphone war seriously this year.
Looking at the overwhelming negative response HTC is getting for its flagship smartphone, the HTC M7, it looks like Sony may be Samsung’s only real competitor on the Android front… that is until we get the full details on Motorola’s mysterious X phone, which is rumored to be the first phone to run Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
How are you liking Sony’s devices so far? Do you think Sony has a shot at taking on Samsung this year?
