Sony Xperia Tablet Z (Impervious)

On February 26, 2013, in Sony Tablet, by Indra Vladvamp


It’s great to be Sony nowadays, with the impressive Xperia Z phone proving even more popular than expected as it’s slowly making its way to the world. And what do you do when you’re on a roll? You try to capitalize on those 15 minutes of fame and make them 20. Or, if you’re lucky, 25.Enter the Xperia Tablet Z, Sony’s latest stab at an “iPad killer”. Sounds familiar? Well, it should, as it was first unveiled about a month ago in Japan. What we didn’t know back then and we do now is that the 10-incher will land outside Asia (and, well, Finland) at some point. Also, pricing is no longer a thick cloud of mystery. Then again, we wouldn’t list that latter part as good news.


And that’s because the Tablet Z will start at $499 in the US in its 16 GB flavor, with the 32 GB variation going for 100 bucks extra. Not exactly prohibitive, but a serious deal breaker for some. After all, the Nexus 10 – the real iPad killer – is $399 via Google Play. And that bad boy has a better screen (much better, in fact) and a heftier battery (9,000 vs 6,000 mAh). So, why would anyone want the Tab Z? For one, it’s incredibly sleek, with a 495-gram body and a 6.9 mm thin profile. It’s also water and dust proof, which is nice, we guess… if you plan on doing a reenactment of the Cast Away movie.

Irony aside, we won’t blame you if you’re going to be swept off your feet by the 10-incher’s sexy looks. In which case you’ll want to keep an eye out on your favorite retailers during Q2 (between April and June, that is). That’s the vague official ETA of the tab announced by Sony at MWC. Anyone want to go halfsies on one?

If you’re smitten by the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, we’re sure today’s announcement of its worldwide availability has only increased your excitement for the slate. In case you missed it, Sony’s upcoming tablet will be released globally in Q2 2013 with a starting price of $499. While waiting for the full HD tablet to hit stores in the following months, here are a couple of videos of the Xperia Z that you can feast your eyes on to get to know the thin tab better.


If you only have about 2 minutes to spare, the first video is the perfect introduction to Sony’s amazing new tablet. Hardcore Sony supporters will want to check the second video for some real-life demonstration of the Xperia Tablet Z, with the company’s tablet product team helping showcase some of the main features of the tablet. Loving the Tablet Z and the videos above?
