Our take on the Sony Xperia™ Tablet Z
Innovative design, stunning display
What makes a great tablet? Versatility, durability, compact design, and fun, useful features. The Sony Xperia Tablet Z delivers on all counts. The Tablet Z is only as thick as a pencil and weighs just a little over a pound, yet its strong display glass makes it one of the toughest tablets around.
The 10.1" touchscreen display delivers enhanced color reproduction, giving you an HDTV-like viewing experience. Incorporated into the display is a high-contrast panel that helps reduce glare in direct sunlight, so you can use it inside and out.
Enhance your TV viewing experience
"The Tablet Z is great to have on hand when you're watching TV. You can use it as a universal infrared remote to control your system with intuitive touchscreen navigation. The preloaded TV SideView™ app turns the tablet into a second screen where you can check channel listings and change programs without minimizing your TV's picture.
Want to see a certain movie or show, but not sure which service has it? The tablet's built-in search function automatically checks TV schedules, Internet services and apps like Netflix® with a single click. And once you start watching, use the Tablet Z to connect with friends and fans through Twitter and Facebook to talk about the show in real time.
Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, and NFC
The Tablet Z has built-in Wi-Fi, so you can use your wireless home network or public hotspots to access the Internet. And it has built-in Bluetooth for easy pairing with compatible wireless headsets, headphones, portable speakers and other compatible devices.
Still not enough? This versatile tablet also features NFC (Near Field Communication). Just touch it to a compatible device for instant wireless pairing. Then with one touch you can transfer movies, photos, or music — without wires and without logging into a network.
Cameras on the front and back
An 8-megapixel camera on the rear panel captures high-quality images and videos. Sony's exclusive built-in mobile sensor adjusts for available lighting, ensuring you get the best shot possible. And when you're done, it's simple to upload pictures directly to Facebook. Or use Sony's free PlayMemories Online™ service to store and share photos and videos.
A second front-facing camera lets you use the tablet for video chat. The Tablet Z's built-in microphone picks up the sound for your videos and online conversations.
Expandable memory for more entertainment options
The tablet comes configured with either 16GB or 32GB of built-in memory. A microSD™ card slot on the side lets you slip in extra microSD or microSDHC cards (available separately) to expand your available storage.
Powerful processing for ultra-fast operation
The Xperia Tablet Z uses a powerful 1.5GHz quad-core processor to ensure fast processing power and smooth motion. Android's latest "Jelly Bean" operating system seriously delivers seamless performance and a responsive interface.
Water- and dust-resistant
Go ahead and use your Tablet Z in the kitchen. And don't worry about an occasional splatter or an accidental dip into the sink. A water-resistant design means it can withstand being submerged down to three feet for up to 30 minutes.
