Xperia Tablet Z

On sale today, prices start at £399 for 16GB + Wifi

A couple of months after Sony first started taking pre-orders, its Xperia Tablet Z slate is now available to buy in the UK. Prices start at £399 for 16GB of storage and Wifi connectivity (black only), or you can opt for 32GB with Wifi (black and white) or 16GB with Wifi and 4G LTE connectivity (black only). The Tablet Z isn't the cheapest Android tablet option around, but it does boast a Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core CPU inside, a 1080p display and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, backed up by Sony's suite of apps. For the hacking crowd, there's also AOSP support through Sony's GitHub.

Across the Atlantic, Sony's still taking pre-orders for the Xperia Tablet Z through its official online store, with devices expected to ship out this Friday, May 24.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z now available in the UK


A 16gb Nexus 10 is £319 in the Play Store, and it's an altogether much more impressive tablet - this thing is DOA.

Who are Sony trying to kid?

It's thinner, lighter, and most importantly has a microsd slot. It also doesn't look like crap (I hate Samsung's curved designs). The CPU isn't the most recent and it lacks the Nexus 10's resolution, but overall it doesn't compromise as much as a Nexus device.
