Meanwhile, Xperia Tablet Z was unveiled in Japan last month. The new Sony tablet features a 10.1-inch Full HD display (1920 x 1200 p), boosted by Sony Mobile Bravia Engine 2. There has been no announcement about an international release just yet, but the Xperia S price drop suggests Z buyers are not going to wait a long time.

The Tablet Z weighs only 495 g and measures 6.9 mm thin, making it the lightest and slimmest tablet today. Its 6,000mAh battery is helped by the Sony Stamina Mode technology for longer life.
