When we first laid hands on Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z back at MWC in Barcelona, only our stalwart professional detachment kept us from falling in love at first sight. The tablet, impossibly thin at 6.9mm and with a just-right weight of 495g, felt incredible in our hands – a feeling that only intensified upon learning the tablet was rated for water resistance to IP55 and IP57 standards. Given our love of durable devices, that was music to our ears.
Now, thanks to some quick shipping by our friends at Negri Electronics, we’ve got an Xperia Tablet Z of our very own here in Pocketnow’s
device-review torture chamber Boston office. We’ll be whipping up some first impressions later in the day, and following that up with our full review treatment sometime next week – but in the meantime, join us as we take a look at what’s inside the box alongside this ultra-thin, OmniBalance-styled Android tablet. Stick around to the end for a first boot, and stick around at Pocketnow for much more as the day goes on.
