Sony Xperia Tablet Z

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is now available for pre-order in the U.S., which should be pretty good news for tablet buyers with a taste for Sony’s sleek designs.

If you’re looking forward to buying the Xperia Tablet Z, the wait is almost over. If you pre-order it now from the U.S. Sony Store, the Xperia Tablet Z should be in your hands in less than a month – Sony says that the tablet should be shipping around May 24. That’s about when the tablet will be delivered to UK customers, too.

Both the 16 GB and the 32 GB versions are available for pre-order, but the 16 GB version can only be pre-ordered in black, while the 32 GB one comes in both black and white. Prices are $499.99 for the 16 GB version and $599.99 for the 32 GB one (be it black or white).

There’s a further incentive if you’ve decided on the white 32 GB version – Sony will throw in a charging cradle, worth another $44.99. This is a Sony Store exclusive, and no explanation on why only the white version qualifies has been provided.

Before you make up your mind, you can check out our first look and hands-on of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z:

Do you plan on pre-ordering a Sony Xperia Tablet Z? Which version do you want to get?

  • Now only of this had the snapdragon 600…

      Its really not that different… You can over clock it to 1.7 GHz safely and they have the same gpu

  • Does anyone know if any of the US wireless carriers will be getting the Tablet Z in the near future? I know Sony will be releasing an LTE version, but seems like they forgot the US again.

    32gb and 64gb should be standard, I will not buy this just because they want another $100.00 for 16gb more storage, which should cost $12.00 at most extra. My next tablet will have 64gb internal and sdcard slot for $500.00, lets see how long it takes for them to figure it out.

      Ah, there you go; that’s the spirit! I agree with you in principle. The new entry standard should be 32GB (and 2GB) on ALL devices. I’d be willing to pay $25-$50 for the extra 16GB, but not $100! There has to be markup, but not robbery.
