The American TheVerge went to Japan to take over the latest Sony Tablet Xperia Z . The latter features a design similar to the Xperia Z and a record thickness: 6.9 mm to only 495 grams.
The Japanese operator NTT DoCoMo introduced this tablet yesterday at a great "show" where many other devices were presented . Sony Xperia Tablet Z is positioned to face the Nexus 10 with a screen similar size but a lower screen resolution 10.1 inch 1920 by 1080 pixels (Full HD). Model 4G (LTE) will be sold in Japan, so we can expect a formalization for the European market by the Mobile World Congress (end of February).
TheVerge was "reasonably impressed" with this tablet after handling a few minutes. You can find some pictures of the tablet more.
Small element we had not noticed until now: the back of the tablet seems unlike plastic Xperia Z which has a glass back. If the presence of a non-glass back is a good thing to prevent scratches, fingerprints and the case, the plastic used does not seem to achieve a high-quality printing even though it seems pleasant to the touch.
Be released in Japan in spring 2013. Sony has already released three Android tablets before the Tablet Xperia Z. The first two were called Sony Tablet S and P, while the last output in 2012 was called the Tablet S.
