Sony Xperia Z2 tablet official

Following its official debut at the end of February, Sony today revealed when the Xperia Z2 Tablet will go on sale in the U.S. and how much it’ll cost when it does.

Sony is now accepting pre-orders for the Wi-Fi-only Xperia Z2 Tablet, with pricing set at $499.99 for the 16GB model and $599.99 for the more capacious 32GB variant. The Xperia Z2 Tablet is expected to begin shipping out on May 3 and will hit Sony Stores on May 4.

For those of you that’d like a quick spec refresher on this Monday afternoon, I’m happy to oblige. The Xperia Z2 Tablet includes the following features:

  • 10.1-inch 1920x1080 display
  • 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor
  • 8.1-megapixel rear, 2.2-megapixel front cameras
  • 16GB/32GB built-in storage
  • microSD card slot
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 6000mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

The Xperia Z2 Tablet’s other claims to fame include IP55 and IP58 ratings for waterproofing and resistant to dust as well as a body that measures just 6.4mm thick. Overall the Xperia Z2 Tablet looks like a respectable Android slate, especially for those folks that want something that’s ultra-thin or can withstand some splashing.
