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

Not true, there are certain games where touch is actually preferable to a mouse and keyboard. This is coming from someone who played in a Quakeworld clan and currently does DOTA 2 and Starcraft (both HUGE mouse+keyboard games).
The key is to have a game that is right for touch. A game that does virtual thumbsticks like an FPS or fighting game is pretty awful, but other things like board and card games are actually better via touch than via mouse. I play Magic: The Gathering, Ascension, and Ticket To Ride on tablet, and they're all better than their counterparts on PC simply because of the control. Same with other games like Hundreds, The Room, etc.
There's a new generation of deep and involving games that are built around touch, and they're really great,
not just "great for touch".
