We expected this device to be featured at MWC this year, as we had numerous leaks of the tablet this month. It’s a beautiful device by any means, with a quite distinctive design that has the Xperia Z feel to it. Much like its smartphone counterpart, the Xperia Tablet Z hasĀ IP55 & IP57 certifications, which means it’s dustproof and waterproof.

The specifications too are nothing short of amazing. You get a 10,1-inch FullHD Reality displaywith Mobile Bravia engine 2, 1,5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, 16/32GB storage and microSD card slot for storage expansion, 8MP rear-facing camera and 2MP front-facing one. The usual set of connectivity features is also present here, excluding mobile data, but there will be a version of the tablet with that feature included.

The Sony Xperia Tablet S will be available this spring both in Sony Stores and authorized retailers for $499 and $599 for the 16GB and 32GB versions respectively. Here’s the official promo video of the tablet:
