Sony has just announced the availability of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z in Japan. The 10.1-inch tablet runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm APQ8064 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB storage space. The 10.1-inch screen has a 1920 x 1200 resolution with Mobile Bravia Engine 2 for displaying vivid images. It’s also got an 8.1MP Exmor R camera, Sony’s “S-Force” virtual surround sound NFC, and LTE. At 6.9mm, the Xperia Tablet Z is thinner than the iPad mini, but weights a bit more at 495g. Amazingly this thin and lightweight tablet is both waterproof and dustproof and will come in two colors: black and white. No word on pricing or availability yet but we’ll keep you updated.
