The Xperia Tablet Z is one of the sleekest tablets around. It's ultra-thin frame shouldn't be mistaken for being flimsy, as the tablet offers scratch/shatterproof glass and is water and dust resistant. A full HD display and superior camera complete the package.
Display and Configuration
Sony Xperia Tablet Z sports a 10.1-inch of TFT capacitive Multi touchscreen display with a resolution of 1200 x 1920 pixels and features Sony's Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. Measuring 6.9mm in thickness, it's one of the thinnest tablets in the market.
The device runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by a 1.5GHz Quad Core Snapdragon Processor paired with 2GB RAM. It is water and dust resistant, like the Xperia Z and Z1 flagship smartphones.
Camera and Memory
The device packs in an 8.1 MP of rear camera with autofocus, LED Flash and 16x Digital Zoom, and also has a 2.2 MP front camera for video chatting. It houses 16GB internal memory which can be expanded up to 64 GB via a microSD card.
Connectivity and Battery
Connectivity options include 3G, WiFi, GPS, USB, GPRS, LTE and Bluetooth. The tablet is supported by a 6000 mAh battery which provides 16 hours of usage.
The features are astonishing. World's first tablet to support IrDA. And so, universal remote app is made exclusively for utilising the infrared connectivity. Further, 1.5 GHz quad core processor, 2GB RAM and built-in storage of 16GB with expandable up to 64GB with microSD card makes it a powerful competitor for iPad.nnWaterproof and dustproof (military standards) with scratch resistant screen is an additional feature that even iPads doesn't have.nnPowered by Android v4.1 Jelly Bean, this tablet is a great entertainment device also.nnConnectivity supported includes 3G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, WiFi (a/b/g/n), NFC, IrDA and MHL.nnApart from this, SMS and MMS are also supported.nnCost is a bit high, but is very cheap compared iPad with same/similar configuration.nnMore information on specifications can be found here:nhttp://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/products/tablets/xperia-tablet-z/specifications/#tabsnnBut unfortunately, it's a worst experience in purchasing through Flipkart. I made the payment on Sunday and the expected delivery is next week Tuesday (10 days). There is no meaning in "In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days". The people here don't bother about the issue as well.
I don't have to go into the specs, its all listed on this page, so its a user experience feedback.nFirst the Bad n1.As said by another reviewer the power cable is short!! would be very difficult to use while charging.n2. as usual, sony never brings in accessories from the start, am sure we will have to wait a few months for those to land.n3. Camera does suck!! but then other than skype, why would I need it??nnNow the Goodn1. Its everything the ad's promise and a bit more... you are actually holding it in your hands.n2. There are some saying it heated up in use, this is not an issue for me, played GTA vice city with display settings to the max and it purred along fine with no heating or game play issues.n3. Compared to the Tablet S, the speakers are LOUD... !!!n4. when used without the cover you can actually feel how light it is!!, very comfortable to use to read an eBook in bed.n5. The Display is just awesome!! HD movies and games play just fine with nice rich colors.nnThe rest is normal Jelly bean fare, would certainly recommend for people looking for a new tablet! Finally us Android fans can boost of a tablet that is equal parts beauty and beast!!
