Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Overview
THE SONY XPERIA Z2 TABLET HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED. PLEASE SEE OUR RANGE OF TABLETS HERE.
In 2013, Sony changed the face of mobile devices with their IP 58 rated water and dust resistant Xperia Z range. The original Z tablet was not only protected from the elements and hazards of daily life (safe and sound from a spilled coffee or juice!), it was also blessed with being the thinnest 10 inch tablet on the market.
A new year and Sony has seen fit to update the range with a new Z2 flagship as well as the Z2 Tablet, further reducing thickness and weight to an utterly incredible 266 x 172 x 6.4 mm and 439 grams. Everything that made the original Z Tablet such a draw remains, with improvements across the board in hardware and software.
The 10.1 inch display has a Full HD resolution of 1200 x 1920 so you can enjoy movies and TV the way they were intended. Aspects of Sony's Triluminos technology, developed for their television panels, have also been used for rich colour depth and sharp definition.
The Snapdragon 800 is still the processor of choice for high range devices; a quad core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, the Z2 tablet uses the updated 801 'AB' version for higher speed memory management. This comes coupled with the Adreno 330 GPU for unparallelled gaming graphics and support for processing 4K video. This is backed up by a huge 3GB of RAM which matches up to Samsung's most recent offerings.
This choice of processor also provides global LTE compatibility on bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17 & 20. With this impressive power combination, and the improvements in Android 4.4, the Z2 Tablet will certainly deliver exceptional perormance no matter what you throw at it. To output to TV, MHL 3.0 has also been confirmed with support for 4K streaming and high power charging up to 10W, where available. Wi-Fi capabilities include support for dual band (2.4 / 5 GHz) and the 'ac' specification. As with all high-end Sony Xperia devices USB hosting is allowed, including built in support for PS3 Dualshock controllers.
Sony also continue their tradition of providing great media content. Sony Music and Video Unlimited are provided so subscribed members can receive quality music and movies. The PlayStation Mobile store also returns, with access to unique games and experiences.
