The Xperia Z Tablet is set to bring everything Sony does best in the smartphone world to a tablet; the perfect partner to the Xperia Z smartphone,or as a standalone device. Always a company to produce good looking hardware that also performs, Sony have focussed more than ever on design with Xperia Z duo and the quality shines through with the Z tablet. Although it weighs in at just under 500 grams, this 10.1 inch tablet is solidly built and,like its smartphone cousin, is also IP57 certified for water resistance and dust proofing.
The HD 10.1 inch screen is powered by Sony's excellent Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 for equality with Sony's unparallelled HDTVs. The Reality Display on the Xperia Z tablet is the result of Sony's BRAVIA TV engineers experience. You are also brought closer to the colours and action on screen than ever before with a tablet thanks to OptiContrast technology which has removed a layer of air between the surfaces in the screen production, integrating the sensor on the lens and making sure the display is right at your fingertips. OptiContrast results in clearer viewing in sunlight and a seamless black surface when the screen is off.
Sony know how important it is to have the newest technology available on their premium devices and the Xperia Z tablet is no different. Alongside dual channel 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi (with Miracast and Wi-Fi hotspot), NFC for one touch sharing and payments, and MHL enabled microUSB for HD output, you also have an embedded IR transmitter to turn the Xperia Z into a remote control for other devices in the home, support for the latest Bluetooth 4.0 specification. LTE is also included for connectivity to the next generation of high speed mobile networks*.
