A beautiful 10.1 inch HD display that has a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels renders wonderful colours and images, thanks to its Mobile Bravia Engine 2 technology. Just 6.9 mm thick and 495 gm light, this tablet feels good in your hand, and the best part is that it is dust and water resistant with a durable glass front display. This is a tablet that is meant for both work and play. Running on a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, and with 2 Gigabytes of internal RAM, the tablet manages to deliver a great Android experience.
The tablet features NFC connectivity and if you have one of the latest Sony TV sets you can just tap the tablet on the TV remote to get a mirror display. The tablet has four speakers that create virtual 3D surround sound for you, so if you want to watch a YouTube video, or a movie you have stored on its 32 Gigabytes of storage (16GB on Board plus the Bundled 16GB micro SD card), the sound will impress you.
I am not a big fan of cameras on tablets, but then sometimes they come handy. The Sony Xperia Tablet Z features an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with Exmor R support, which takes good pictures, and there is also a front-facing 2 megapixel camera, just in case you want to take a picture of yourself, or for that video call to the family from a work trip.
The tablet has an infrared remote with Sony’s universal remote application that enables you to control all the devices in your home or office, be it air conditioners, music systems, TVs or media players, via the tablet.
Sony has also provided a number of signature applications on this tablet— Sony Music gives you six months of free unlimited streaming and downloading of 1.5 million songs from its library, while Sony LIV lets you stream Sony television programmes from SAB, Sony Entertainment and MAX, and you also get over 77 programmes and 4,500 hours of video clips. Its x4 video player lets you play four clips simultaneously.
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is available only in black, though.
