First Look: The Sony Xperia Tablet Z gets dunked in water

2:01 /

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is the company's thinnest and lightest 10-inch tablet yet.

-Hey guys. This is Eric Franklin, and today, I'm taking a first look at the Sony Xperia Tablet Z. This is a followup to Sony's Xperia Tablet S from last year and they've changed a few things. Let's take a look at those first. Gone is the wedge design from the Xperia Tablet S, now in favor of more traditional kind of normal design. I say normal, but it's actually, according to Sony, the thinnest and lightest 10-inch tablet yet. And with a 7-mm thickness and 1.1-pound weight, it's kinda hard to argue. Let's go through some of the ports. As you can see here, there's a power button and a volume rocker and then there's a cover for the headphone jack. Can we see if I can open that right here? I'll explain why that's covered later. There's also a cover for the MHL connector which doubles as a micro-USB port which you can charge and transfer files as well. There's a cover for the micro-SD card slot as well. The tablet runs a Qualcomm S4 1.5 gigahertz processor, has a 1920 x 1200 resolution screen, and runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. It has an 8-megapixel back camera and a 2-megapixel front camera. The camera software now features something called superior auto which makes it easier to take pictures in low light situations and when an object is moving. As I mentioned before, all the ports on the Xperia Tablet Z are covered. There's a reason for that. It's actually fully waterproof. While the Xperia tablet S was only splash proof, this one is dunkable. Look for the Xperia Tablet Z in May starting at $499 for 16 gigabytes and $599 for 32 gigabytes. Once again, I'm Eric Franklin and this has been a first look at the Sony Xperia Tablet Z.
