Sony Xperia Tablet Z is lightest 10in tablet yet
New 10in Android 4.1 tablet weighs just 495g, says Sony
Sony has unveiled its next Android tablet, the Xperia Tablet Z, in Japan.
The Xperia Tablet Z is one of the thinnest 10.1in tablets we've yet seen at 6.9mm, and it's certainly the lightest, weighing an impressive 495g.
Despite slimming down, Sony has packed in a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm APQ8064 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a 6,000mAh battery, all powering a 10.1in 1080p display.
The Xperia Tablet Z runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), has an 8.1-megapixel rear camera, and is listed with both NFC and LTE chips - although it remains to be seen which territories will retain those features.
It will come in black or white. Sony has no information on UK availability or pricing yet.
