Sony today announced its next-generation tablet in Japan, the Xperia Tablet Z, that has made some appearances on the Internet over the last one month. The 10.1-inch screen of the Tablet Z has a resolution of 1920*1200 and is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC clocked at 1.5GHz and an Adreno 320 GPU.
Other key specs of the Xperia Tablet Z include 2GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage space, a microSD card slot, GPS with A-GPS, Mobile Bravia Engine 2, 8.1MP Exmor R camera at the back, 1.9MP front-facing camera, NFC, 3G/LTE connectivity, GPS, Wi-Fi, and a bunch of sensors all inside an amazingly thin 6.9mm body.
While the specs of the Xperia Tablet Z are definitely impressive, the measly 6000mAh battery is something to be worried about. Hopefully, Sony has tweaked the Z to squeeze the maximum potential from the 6000mAh battery. The Xperia Tablet Z borrows similar design cues and build materials from its smartphone sibling, the Xperia Z. The device will be running on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean when released, but will be updated to Android 4.2 soon after.
