The main features of the new Xperia Tablet Z according to Sony.

Water And Dust Resistance

Xperia Tablet Z can remain immersed in up to 1m (3 feet) of water for up to 30 min. However, Sony is not urging us to immerse the tablet in water, but promises that few drops or splashes will not create any problem.

10.1″ Display Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2

As a competitive advantage of Xperia Tablet Z is the 10.1″ display of the tablet, since for their construction, work the same people who work for Sony Bravia TVs. The new display features improved contrast, increased color saturation, and reduces the “noise” in low quality video but also imposes a “definition filter” to make the pictures more detailed.


Xperia Tablet Z has many options to communicate with other devices at home such as WiFi, DLNA, MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link, allows mobile devices to connect HDTVs), Bluetooth and focuses on wireless communication on very short range (NFC). Sony Xperia Tablet Z will be released in two versions with Wi-Fi only and with 4G/LTE chips for use in fourth generation mobile networks.
