Sony goes official with its latest Android tablet
Sony in Japan today officially announced Sony’s new Xperia Tablet Z tablet. The tablet is tipped to enter the Japanese market this spring and promises to be semi-rugged.
The tablet promises to be waterproof and dustproof while being impressively thin at 6.9 mm thick (thinner than the anorexic
). Sony also says the tablet is light at about 495 g. The Tablet Z will have a 10.1-inch screen sporting WUXGA resolution using the Mobile Bravia Engine 2 for high-quality images.
The new tablet will have an 8.1 megapixel camera using an Exmor R CMOS sensor. The fancy camera on the tablet is able to automatically recognize the scene and adjust exposures automatically so they come out with high quality in dark. The camera also has an Auto Low Premium feature that selects optimal settings automatically for the best images in dark environments.
The Xperia Tablet Z features S-Force Front Surround 3-D virtual sound technology, and has integrated Near Field Communication technology allowing users to share photos and video with other Xperia smartphone and tablet users at the touch of a button. This NFC transport feature can also be used to share music.
Other hardware features of the tablet include Android 4.1 and a quad-core 1.5 GHz processor. The tablet also has integrated LTE technology and will be available in black or white colors. Pricing is unannounced at this time.
Sony also recently revealed its gorgeous

"first off, if (and i realize everything is a if right now)
but if, the sony is 499 with LTE and 32gb with 2gb ram like reported in another article; then it is vs the Ipad at $629."
That would be good... But I was assuming Sony would be $499 for the base Wifi model. Compared to the Nexus 10, for $399 its not so good.
