-I'm Andrew Hoyle for CNET and I'm here taking a look at the Sony Xperia Z2 tablet. It's the latest 10-inch slide from Sony packing some top-end kit into a super skinny waterproof body. With its 10-inch display, the Z2 tablet is much the same size as basically any other 10-inch tablets around, but only 6.4 mm thick. It is extremely skinny and very lightweight too. It's good news if you plan on carrying it around all day. Like its predecessor and the other phones in Sony's Xperia range, it is completely waterproof so you can watch Netflix in the bath. Lovely stuff. It has a full HD resolution and Sony reckons it uses much of the same tech from its TVs, which probably gives much more bold colors. Now inside it's running on the same snapdragon 801 processor as the Xperia Z2 smartphone. That's a quad core 2.3 gigahertz chip, which should make everything extremely swift. It comes running the latest android 4.4.2 Kitkat software as well as load of Sony additions like its music and TV streaming services. You'll also be able to hook up a PS3 controller to play some games from the PlayStation mobile store. There's no official word from Sony yet on how much this guy is going to set you back, but keep your eyes peeled throughout much as it's due to go on sale at the end of that month. There's no word yet on whether it will come to the U.S. stores, but it will be launched first throughout Europe. I'm Andrew Hoyle for CNET and this is the Sony Xperia Z2 tablet.
