Sony Xperia Tablet Z Makes First Hands-on Appearance in Video

YouTube Preview Image

Earlier in the week, Sony announced their brand new take on a tablet, the Xperia Tablet Z. With similar design language to the Xperia Z smartphone, they look a lot alike only this is obviously, much bigger. Shortly after its unveiling, media in Japan was able to get its hands on the tablet and do a couple of walk-throughs and give it the hands-on treatment. I think it’s safe to say that Sony has another beautifully designed product on its hands to match-up with their announcements from CES. 

On a spec front, the Xperia Tablet Z (what a name) measures in at just 6.9mm thick, supports a 10.1″ 1,920 x 1,200 display, and is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm quad-core processor. Inside the device, you will also find NFC, 32GB of storage, micro-SD card slot, 2GB of RAM, and a super fancy 8.1 Exmor R camera on its backside.

Other than the Nexus 7 and 10, this is the first time in a while that I’ve looked at a tablet and said, “Wow, that’s a beautiful piece of technology that I wouldn’t mind owning.” I said something similar for the Xperia ZL phone from Sony, so who knows, maybe Sony is on the verge of turning it all around.

  • paul_cus

    If I bought tablets like I bought phones, I’d buy this for sure. As it stands, I’m good with my Nexus 7.

    Sony Xperia Tablet Zed??? WTF… I thought it was the Sony Xperia Tablet Z! The British are so freaking weird!

    • xyz

      Zed/Zee? Who cares? In any case, the British invented English, so if anything, their pronounciations should be held as the correct ones.

    Hopefully you can actually find one… Oh wait, that’s NOT the STILL SOLD OUT Nexus 10?!

    • kixofmyg0t

      Don’t worry. A new upgraded Nexus 10 is due out in a couple months.

    finally a tablet that looks worth buying. hoping it’s everything it seems like it will be.

  • Kennie

    if this is priced well, it’s definitely a good pick up

    • mustbepbs

      Sony =/= priced well

      • picaso86

        Its probably going to be $999.99

  • mustbepbs

    “Now if you take a look here at the side you’ll se..*snap*…Oh..uh..”

    Too thin. I’d have to slap a case on that, which would increase the bulk, to feel safe using it.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Feel safe?

      • mustbepbs

        Yeah, feel like I’m not going to break this expensive piece of technology I just purchased?

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          You’re not going to break it mannnnn…. Unless you drop it that is. I think the actual size will be more important than the thickness.

      This is the most durable tablet/phone Sony ever built. Water and shatter proof. No need for a case http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/7/3847944/sony-xperia-z-zl-hands-on
