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 iPad mini). 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 Xperia Z smartphone which features a 5” 1080p display.

"Also, you cheapskate! This hardware looks great but then you have a bone to pick about it possibly being $500, ridiculous."

Like I said, I really don't care about money, I do pretty well for myself, but I dont want to waste money either. I want the best thing I can get... But if looking at a 10 inch tablet, for myself, or as a recomendation for someone else: If this Sony is $500 and the iPad is $500 and the Nexus 10 is $400, I would have a hard time recommending that anyone buy the Sony, even though it looks nice. For a gamer, or a person that already has a ton of IOS apps, the iPad wins, for someone that just wants a good tablet with great res and the best OS, the Nexus wins... The Sony , since its waterproof only wins for people that bring their tablet to the Beach LOL.

That said, pricing isnt announced, so I am just speculating.
