The tablet market is continuing to grow, with Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z being one of the newer devices to enter the marketplace.  The Japanese manufacturer has released to different models of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z – a 16GB version which costs $499, as well as it’s 32GB counterpart which costs $599.

The Xeria Tablet Z currently holds the spot for the world’s thinnest 10.1” tablet, measuring 0.27 – which is about the thickness of a standard pencil.  The body frame also features tempered glass, which will hopefully result in durability.

The device features a 10.1” Full HD display also features Sony’s renowned Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2.   Sony boasts that the device offers the widest reproduction of the color spectrum, compared to any other tablet on the market.  The device features OptiContrast, which is meant to reduce any glare the user is encountering.

A “one touch” feature has also been made for the device, to allow users to transfer content wireless to an NFC compatible TV, smartphone, or speaker. This is similar to the device’s TVSideView app feature, which allows the user to change the channel on their TV, read information about what they’re watching, or even pick a new show to watch with other apps like Netflix.

Listening to movies or music with the device is another possibility, since it offers high-quality audio through the use of Clear Audio+ technology featured in the device.

Supposedly the device can even last for 30 minutes in up to 3 feet of water, while still being unscathed.
