The Sony Xperia Z has been fairly well received, on account of its 5in 1080p display, expandable memory and waterproofness (yeah, I just made up a word).
Its big tablet brother will be hoping for a similar warm welcome, and the Japanese manufacturer has apparently now settled on a Sony Xperia Tablet Z price and release date for us in the UK.
Over on the official Sony site, Xperia Tablet Z price starts at £399 for the 16GB model, while the 32GB unit will set you back £449. Both of those are Wi-Fi only.
There’s also a 16GB LTE/4G Sony Xperia Tablet Z, but no price has been revealed for that model just yet.
Sticking the former two in our virtual shopping basket, we’re told that the Sony Xperia Tablet Z release date – or the expected delivery date, to be precise – is April 15-16.
Sony Xperia Tablet Z specs include a 10.1in ‘Reality Display’ (1920 x 1200), quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.5GHz, and a meaty 2GB of RAM.
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z spec sheet also boasts an 8MP rear camera, 2.2MP front shooter, stereo speakers with 3D surround sound, Jelly Bean (Android 4.1), Bluetooth and NFC (Near Field Communication).
Sounds pretty good on paper, but we’ve yet to see a 10in tablet trouble the full-sized iPad, and with pricing roughly similar, we can’t see the Sony Xperia Tablet Z bucking that particular trend.
