An iPad Air is a stark 7.5mm thin — very sleek, no doubt about that. But, it’s 2014 Sony says, and the design philosophies have to change; start by trimming some fat. The Xperia Z2 tablet is 6.4mm thin, which is insane, but that’s besides the fact that it can spend half an hour fully submerged in water, while weighing only 15 ounces. Gamers be on alert: it has wireless support for the DualShock 3 controller, for gaming.
Internally, the Z2 tablet is impressive as well, with a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, Adreno 330 GPU and 3 gigs of RAM, and you’ve got a tablet that can both show, and tell. A 10.1 Triluminous 1080p HD display, 8.1-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and 6,000 mAh battery round off the rest of the specs of the Z2 Tablet. Available in March, in black or white; Sony has not provided a price, quite yet.
Press release, after the break.
