Summary: Back when the tablet segment appeared as an important growth market, with the success of Apple's iPad, Sony responded with two separate creations. Both the Tablet S and the Tablet P were Android tablets that significantly differed from the competition. The Tablet S was reminiscent of a magazine by its wedged shape, and had an unusual 9.4" display. Even more unconventional was the folding dual touch screen tablet model P.
Pros: slim and lightweight, convincing display with WUXGA resolution, powerful CPU, microSD card reader, dust and water protected, infrared sensor allows use as a universal remote, Wi-Fi with DLNA and NFC, LTE option
Cons: meager battery life, long charging time, only Android 4.1, no HDMI output (only MHL)
Summary: The Xperia Tablet Z is easily the best tablet that Sony has made to date, and could pinch the crown for best Android tablet thanks to its gorgeous display, super-thin design and ultra light weight. Unfortunately, it's let down by its tinny speakers and slow Sony bloatware and interface. Give us a stock Android version with some decent speakers, and this could easily be the best Android tablet yet, regardless of its size.
Summary: The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is not your average Android tablet. It's something special. Something different. Not only is it an absolute delight to hold and interact with its looks are absolutely stunning. And let's not forget, this sexy tablet can withstand a dunk in the bathtub! As we said earlier, the Android tablet market has been flooded with cookie cutter devices coming in all shapes and sizes. The Xperia Tablet Z easily stands out from the crowd.
Pros: Thinnest and Lightest Tablet Around:, Fast:, Water Resistant:, Display:, Great Battery Life:
iPad Air vs Xperia Z Tablet vs Galaxy Note 10.1: the sign of three
5 March 2014
Excerpt: In the spirit of good faith, I’ll make a disclosure. I’m an Apple fanboy. I’ve used the iPad since the introduction of the iPad 2, and I’ve recently just upgraded to the frankly awesome iPad Air. Despite my love for the fruits of 1 Infinite Loop, however, I don’t dislike Android. In fact, I feel that the OS is a novel system that has made impressive gains not only in marketshare, but in both usability and customizability to boot.
Summary: The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is the slimmest tablet around, with a minimalist look that will turn heads. It's waterproof too, allowing you to watch movies in the bath without fear of splashes. While its Full HD screen and quad-core processor are welcome additions, it doesn't have the resolution or straight-line speed of some of its rivals and its battery is far from perfect.
Pros: Ridiculously slim; Attractive, minimalist design; Fully waterproof; Full HD screen.
Cons: Poor battery life; Skinny design results in flex; Doesn't challenge rivals in sheer power and speed.
Excerpt: It might be slim but it’s certainly not feeble! One of the thinnest tablets in the market, the Sony Xperia Tablet Z comes with rugged protection to make it water-and-dust-resistant. Reportedly, it remains functional after being one meter underwater for up to 30 minutes. On the inside the Tablet Z boasts a fast quad-core processor, operating at 1.5 GHz with 2GB of RAM, running the Android 4.1.3 operating system.
Excerpt: Sony was one of the first to release a Full HD smartphone. The Xperia Z also turned out to be a high-quality product, with the unique feature of being water-proof. Sony wasn't quite as fast with releasing its first Full HD tablet, but we did eventually get the Tablet Z. It's also water-proof, and after using it extensively for a period of time, we can say we're quite impressed with Sony's Full HD tablet.
