MWC 2014: Sony showcases its Xperia Z2 Tablet

Just announced at MWC is the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet – said to be the world’s slimmest and lightest waterproof tablet.

'The Xperia Z2 Tablet represents the pinnacle of tablet innovation and is a true flagship in our premium line. We have evolved our cutting-edge design to create the slimmest lightweight tablet matched with Sony's latest technologies to deliver a unique user experience,' said Kunimasa Suzuki, President and CEO, Sony Mobile Communications.

'And with our new range of dedicated accessories, you can further now enhance your tablet experience whether for work or play, at home or on the go.'

The Xperia Z2 Tablet is the first tablet with Live Colour LED display, which means bright colours and imaging in any light via Sony's latest BRAVIA TV technology. The 10.1-inch Full HD TRILUMINOS Display also uses Sony's new Live Colour LED technology for more natural colours and Sony's X-Reality, which analyses each image for optimal colour, sharpness and contrast. The screen is a big selling point here.

But it's not the only selling point. The Z2 Tablet also offers Sony’s Front Surround audio technology and comes with the world's first digital noise cancelling technology in a tablet, said to reduce ambient noise by up to 98% when paired with a noise cancelling headset.

As we mentioned, this is another waterproof effort from Sony, one that is also very light (426g) and very slim (only 6.4mm). But there's still room for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2.3 GHz processor quad-core Krait CPU, Adreno 330 GPU, 3~GB RAM a large 6000mAh lithium polymer battery, an 8.1-megapixel camera with Exmor RS for mobile and a 2.2-megapixel front-facing HD chat camera.

You also get Sony's 'What's New' app, which helps you discover new and recommended movies, music, games and apps, Walkman and Movies apps for media, PlayMemories Online for easy sharing of your videos and stills and if you want to do some work, connectivity for Sony's BKC50BT Bluetooth Keyboard and Tablet Cover Stand, which creates something approaching a work set-up. OfficeSuite Pro 7 is also pre-loaded.

The Xperia Z2 Tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat (you'll be pleased to hear) and will be available in black or white from March 2014. Price is still to be confirmed.
