The Sony Xperia Z2 tablet won our hearts both for its excellent screen and also its waterproof capability in a CNET review back in April, and it's finally coming to the US via Verizon. It will have 4G LTE connectivity to go with its waterproof, scratch-resistant design. It's available for pre-order starting tomorrow, July 10, for $600 -- or $500 with a new two-year contract.

Verizon will also be offering a range of Xperia Z2 accessories, including a BSC10 Bluetooth speaker with magnetic charging pad, a separate DK39 magnetic charging dock, as well as Sony's already-available SmartWatch 2 Pro and SmartBand wearables, which will work with the tablet.

For more details on the Xperia Z2, make sure to read the CNET review, but know that this boasts a 10.1-inch 1,920x1,200 display, and the US version includes a bundle of six movies -- "Amazing Spiderman," "American Hustle," "This is The End," and three others. And, for a limited time, Verizon is throwing in an MDR-NC31EM noise-cancelling headset for free.

The full specs on the US version can be found here.
