The eagerly awaited and much anticipated Xperia Z2 Tablet from Sony has arrived, and wow… it’s looking pretty good. Running the latest KitKat version of Android on its pretty powerful Snapdragon 801 processor, the Z2 Tablet pretty much follows the design philosophy of its Smartphone counterpart, sporting a uniform bezel around the edge with straight, sleek corners. Could this be simply the beautiful 10” device at the ball? Catch Sascha’s opinion in our first hands-on video of the device.
Just to round off those specs again. The impressive looking display is a 10.1” in size and is based on Sony’s proprietary Triluminos technology. The pixel count is a truly impressive 1,920 x 1,200, and as you can see in the video, it looks absolutely phenomenal. Sony has plenty of expertise with line of HD TVs and would seem that they have certainly learned a thing or two along the way. The camera also gets some special Sony attention with am 8.1MP rear cam that uses Sony’s in-house designed Exmor RS sensor.
The 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor packs an Adreno 330 GPU and is accompanied by 3GB of system memory – so we can expect some truly decent gaming on this guy. Arguably the most impressive aspect of the Xperia Z2 Tablet has to be the physical build of the device. It weighs only 426grams for the Wi-Fi version – The LTE model comes in at a slightly heavier 439 grams. Either way, it is incredibly light for a 10 inch tablet. Likewise, it’s also really thin at only 6.4mm. Sony is claiming it as the lightest and thinnest 10 inch on the market… at this stage, who are we to argue?
