But, this device is simply hoped to re-design the firm’s profile as a tablet maker. The Xperia Tablet Z is powered by a solid 1.5GHz Snapdragon quad core processor, 2GB of RAM and a wonderful 1920 x 1200 HD display.

It is indeed one of alluring things with Xperia Z, since people always buy tablet as thin as possible.
Lightest 10-inch LTE Tablet

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z has a waterproof rating of IPX5/7, which is matched by three other models, but there are no tablets with a higher rating than the Tablet Z,â€ says Sony Mobile.

In Australia, the 16GB Wi-Fi version comes for AU$539, while the 32GB Wi-Fi variant comes for AU$649 and the 16GB 4G LTE and Wi-Fi combo model is priced AU$679.
