Sony unveiled the Xperia Tablet Z at the MWC in Barcelona. It is a 10.1 inch tablet based on a Snapdragon S4 with 2GB of RAM and a screen resolution of 1920x1200 pixels. The operating system is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and Sony has announced an upgrade to 4.2 immediately after the launch.

Unit weight is 495 grams, and the thickness is only 6.9 millimeters. It is equipped with two cameras, the rear one with 8 megapixels, and the front one with the 2 megapixel resolution. Standard version comes in configurations with 16 and 32 GB of storage and a microSD slot for cards up to 64 GB.

Sony emphasizes the resistance of tablet to the water up "to a depth of three feet" as long as it stays there less than half an hour. Tablet has an IR blaster that works with special Sony TV sideview application. This integrates with the cable provider and allows us to scroll through the TV programs on the tablet and select a program that we find interesting. STB cable provider then simply recognizes it as a remote control. The application works with TVs and STB devices that are networked in Wi-Fi.

Price for the U.S. market is $500 for 16gigabyte Wi-Fi version and $600 for a 32gigabyte. For now, they are not planning a 4G version.
