You may recall I penned a piece a few days ago on the Sony Xperia Tablet Z being delayed to the end of May from its original mid-April launch window.
Well it turns out there's no delay at all – Sony has informed us it was always planned to launch then and the only error was in saying it would go on sale in April in the first place.
We're quite excited about the Sony Xperia Tablet Z to tell you the truth, and not just because it's effectively the Xperia Z of tablets. It won't be the cheapest tablet in town – prices start at £399 for the 16GB Wi-Fi-only version, but you get quite a bit for your money.
A 10.1in 1,920 x 1,200-resolution display (or an HD Reality Display as Sony calls it) starts off the good work, and is ably backed up by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.
You also get an 8MP Exmor R-based camera, NFC and waterproofing to pick another trio of features at random, while for another £50 you can up the 16GB storage to 32GB, and for £100 extra enjoy 4G LTE connectivity.
Considering the Xperia Tablet Z was only announced at Mobile World Congress just over a month ago, the claimed launch window of May 28-29 isn't a ridiculous wait. It's just a shame that Sony's own technical glitch had us expecting it would be available as soon as a couple of weeks from now.
"Xperia Tablet Z became available for pre-order last week and we’re delighted by the incredible response. During this process however, some Sony customers were misinformed of the expected delivery date to be 12th-15th April," Sony's statement reads.
"This was in error and has never been the case; the units will be delivered as scheduled at the end of May. We apologise for any confusion caused – customers are being contacted individually by phone (or email if unavailable) to ensure the correct information reaches them."
