Although the Sony Xperia Z2 has yet to arrive in the United States, at least Sony fans will now have the opportunity to grab the Xperia Tablet Z2. The tablet Z2 is available for pre-order through Sony’s website as we speak, with an estimated shipping date set for May 4th.

At MWC we noted that the tablet had rather impressive specs and was a solid improvement over the original tablet Z, unfortunately it’s also a bit on the expensive side at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model. So what kind of specs does $499 bring you? The Xperia tablet Z2 is powered by a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU with 3GB of RAM. Other specs include a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200, front-facing speakers, a water/dust resistant design, an 8.1MP camera and Android 4.4 KitKat.
