Over the course of the past week, the Sony Xperia Tablet Z went from rumor to seemingly-confirmed pretty darn quickly, and a document from Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo made it seem like the tablet would be going official early this week. Sure enough, today Sony unveiled the 10.1-inch, higher-than-1080p tablet we were expecting.
The Tablet Z features a WUXGA 1920 x 1200 Mobile Bravia 2 display, giving it a solid 224ppi pixel density; that won’t compete with smartphones like the Xperia Z, but a display this size just might have you be appreciating that high resolution all the more. The Jelly Bean-running tablet is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core SoC (which we previously heard would be a Snapdragon S4 Pro), and features an eight-megapixel main camera, a pretty high resolution for a tablet like this. We’re used to tablets having a little bulk to them, but the Tablet Z will be positively svelte, measuring a mere 6.9 millimeters thick.
Both black and white color options will be available for the Tablet Z, which also features virtual surround sound, NFC support, and sports an LTE radio. It’s clearly on-tap for Japan, but we’re still waiting on info for Sony’s global plans for the tablet, as well as a little pricing data.
