The Sony Xperia Tablet Z has proven to be a very popular device, selling out in many European countries, but it looks like American consumers will have to wait a little while longer.

The Xperia Tablet Z was supposed to be released on the 25th of May, however Sony has delayed the launch a few days to the 29th of May. That is the release date on the official Sony website, with Amazon listing it as “Temporarily out of stock” and B&H claiming it will arrive on the 4th of June.

With a beautiful design, water and dust resistance, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, as well as some nifty features, it’s no wonder the Xperia Tablet Z is proving to be Sony’s most popular tablet yet. Now all Sony has to do is get it on the U.S market and by the looks of things, it shouldn’t be too long of a wait now.

    Is the only 10 incher worth buying. Build quality, performance and design and full hd and card slot, the competitors have poor quality and lagging and stuttering tegra3 chipsets, insane big disappointments, tegra really destroyed the otherwise good Asus Infinity 700. And Nexus 10 is not suitable for the average buyer.
