Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z goes up for pre-order in Finland for €799

The Xperia Tablet Z was officially unveiled in Japan last Sunday. It sports a design that has left many in awe, particularly due to its 6.9 mm thick body, which is just about as thin as it gets for a 10.1-inch tablet.

Although Sony is still keeping mum about the Tablet Z’s international release, one Finnish retailer has begun taking pre-order of the water- and dust-proof tablet on its website, where it’s offered for €799.


Now, we’re not an expert in the language, but assuming you can stomach the price, we don’t think you should expect to get your mitts on the Tablet Z so soon. Given that the tablet is only due to hit stores in Japan this spring, it’s not surprising to see that the delivery date is still missing.

If you’re intrigued by the slim chassis of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z and its specs –10.1-inch display with 1,920 x 1200 resolution, a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, microSD slot, 8MP rear camera, NFC, LTE, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean – don’t miss the hands-on video of the tablet right here.

Do you think Sony will do the right thing and release the Xperia Tablet Z worldwide? How much are you willing you to spend to get one?

    Wow. At this price I rather have a surface pro.
    This is the price of a ultrabook, are there really people willing to pay this price for a tablet?

      in here (Finland) the prices are higher because we are so small country :(

    Haha, thanks but no. I’ll take the every which was better Nexus 10 when the 2nd version comes out and an Oppo Find 5, all from the roughly same budget. And I was kind not to mention the predictable terrible battery life of the Xperia tab. Size isn’t everything.

      as I already replied to username “K.”, in here (Finland) the prices are higher because we are so small country :(

        …? And because Finland is a small country, means that everybody must be rich!?! Stand together and demand lower prices.

        • MasterMuffin

          Everybody’s rich :D just kidding, but Finland has only 5 million people and we would get at most 10,000 or less people to appeal and would Sony/any other big company that sells their devices worldwide care about us? No, they could even just stop selling here because only Samsung and Apple make good profit here :(

          • Topcat488

            OK. I understand… Sorry.

          • MasterMuffin

            Don’t be, we’ll get there someday! :)

    The page talks about the amazing specs and design and the black text “Ennakkotilaa jo nyt! Hinta ja saatavuus varmistuvat myöhemmin!” means something like this: “Pre-order now! The price and availability will get confirmed later!”

  • I would pay a price that matches whatever the Ipad goes for. I would prefer this over the IPad but not at a higher price.
