Sony’s second waterproof Xperia tablet - the hottest Android slate?
Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet
Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet
The world’s slimmest and lightest tablet is no longer the iPad Air, according to Sony, since the announcement of the Android KitKat-powered Sony Xperia Z2 tablet. Oh, and it also happens to be waterproof. Not bad.
In real terms, it’s a 10.1-inch device with a Full HD screen that’s just 6.4mm thin (ok, that’s pretty thin) and 439g in mass. Naturally, there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip, clocked at 2.3GHz, running the show and a very healthy 3GB RAM to provide the memory grunt.
There are on-board and expandable storage options, an 8.1-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2.2-megapixel one for selfies and web chats, and a few other mod-cons such as NFC, 4G and Sony’s Mobile Bravia Engine 2 to make your movie watching as faithful to the big screen as possible.
Prices start at £399.

Don't agree. I have an iPad and am pretty disappointed with it. It's a very expensive web browser and media player. Nothing more. iTunes is annoying and slow. I'm also sick of browsing the web with "is this site going to work on safari?" constantly in the back of my mind. On each browsing session I'll hit at least 1 website that doesn't work on safari. It integrates poorly with my business applications. If you just want a media play then go with the Kindle HD or Surface RT I reckon. The iPad is just a media player and costs loads more... all the apps are just a consumer quagmire of distraction since barely any of them offer any real life changing convenience. They're just another way for you to buy crap you don't need and pass your money onto corporate giants. Until they start to offer some real improvements on productivity of daily tasks then it's simply an expensive distraction. Why get an expensive one when you can get a much cheaper one that does the same thing?
