Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z would be the first premium Android tablet to be announced this year. It follows the company’s not so popular Tablet S and Tablet P devices and as expected, the “Z” would be sporting Jelly Bean. This tablet is the thinnest one as of yet as it only measures 0.27″. In contrast, the previously thinnest iPad Mini is 0.37″ thick.
The Tablet Z is powered by Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5 GHz and a RAM of 2GB. These internals are comparable to the Nexus 10 and the Transformer Infinity which also come equipped with quad-core CPUs. Screen resolution is at 1200 x 1920 pixel with enhanced contrast ratio and color accuracy thanks to Mobile Bravia Engine 2 technology. This tablet will also come with a SIM card slot for LTE connection although it’s not known whether it will run under USA carriers. Pricing for the Xperia Tablet Z is yet to be announced but it is expected to hit stores this March.
