The Xperia Z2 Tablet is what we might call the big brother of the Xperia Z2 smartphone, which is expected to be in customers’ hands in April. The tablet is powered by Android 4.4 KitKat and comes with a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM and an 8.1MP camera. Both devices were announced at MWC in February where we took the water resistant, 10.1-inch Full HD TILUMINOUS display tablet for a test run, see what we had to say about it.
We have seen a lot of positive hype about the Xperia Z2 smartphone, a lot of which is focused on the 20.7MP camera with the ability to shoot 4K video. The Xperia Z2 Tablet, as might be expected of a tablet, does not come with the same powerhouse of a camera sensor, but their 8.1MP camera with Exmor RS™ for mobile will still let you snap Full HD images and video. Aside from the camera sensor difference, and the screen size, obviously, the phone and tablet share a lot of specifications, and as the phone represents Sony’s latest and greatest, so should we expect of the tablet.
Seeing that this is Sony’s flagship tablet for the year, our choice for best tablet at MWC, and chalk full of high-end goodness, it necessarily comes with what you may consider a steep price tag. Are you interested enough in this tablet to dish over the equivalent of US$658 – US$825?
