New Delhi: Close on the heels of the Xperia Z smartphone that was unveiled at the CES 2013, Sony has now announced the launch of its tablet - Sony Xperia Tablet Z.
The Xperia Tablet Z is claimed to be a waterproof and dustproof tablet. The tablet features a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. It runs Android 4.1 OS and is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz.
The new Sony tablet sports an 8-megapixel camera, which is claimed to be the first backside-illuminated sensor Sony has put in a tablet.
At 6.9mm, the tablet is thinner than the Apple ipad Mini, which measures 7.2 mm thick.
The Xperia Tablet Z is equipped with a feature - called "S-Force Front Surround 3D" - that brings together movement and sound to achieve a sense of spaciousness.
The new tablet also supports LTE and NFC. It will be available in two colours - black and white.
Sony says that the new tablet product is for the Japanese market. The company will launch the tablet in Japan this spring. However, there is no word on pricing or availability yet.
