Meet the Xperia Z4 Tablet, Sony's latest top-end 10-inch slate. As well as being completely waterproof, the Z4 Tablet has an incredibly light and skinny body, a 2K resolution display and the latest Android Lollipop software.

There's no word yet on exactly how much it'll cost, but don't expect it to come cheap. It's due to hit shelves globally later this year.

The design is every bit as stark and minimalist as I've come to expect from Sony.

It's not only splashproof, but completely waterproof, meaning you can bung it in the sink to wash when it gets dirty, or safely read in the bath.

It measures only 6.1mm thick, which really is frighteningly slim for such a large device.

You'll find the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop software on board, meaning you can access the hidden easter 'Flappy Bird'-style game.

Sony has applied its own user interface over the top of Lollipop, making it look pretty much like other recent Xperia devices.

A panel to the left of the app tray lets you easily reorganise your apps.

The screen has a 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution, which keeps apps and text looking pin sharp, at least in my hands-on time.

The Micro-USB charging port has been given a waterproof treatment to help it keep the water out. No more will you have to fiddle with little rubberised flaps.

It will of course work in portrait orientation -- handy for reading magazines.

There's a 13-megapixel camera sat on the back, with a 5-megapixel on the front.

This keyboard dock is an optional accessory, but may be handy if you can't decide between buying a new laptop for working on or a new tablet for browsing the Web on the sofa.

With the keyboard attached, the tablet fold away neatly, just like a laptop.
