Sony Xperia Tablet Z was announced in Japan earlier this year. At the MWC 2013 Sony announced that it would roll out globally from Q2 2013. Sony has started taking pre-orders for the Sony Xperia Tablet Z (SGP321GB) 16GB LTE version. The Sony Xperia Tablet Z has a 10.1-inch HD (1920 x 1200 pixels) WUXGA Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. It is powered by a 1.5 GHz asynchronous quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, and runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).
It has a 8 MP rear camera with Exmor R for mobile sensor and a 2MP 1080p auto front camera. Other features include, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, up to 32GB expandable memory with microSD, 3.5mm audio jack, FM Radio with RDS.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z 16GB LTE version is priced at 499 GBP including VAT. You can pre-order the tablet from Sony, and they expect it to deliver it by the
3rd week of April end of May. UK’s online retailer Clove has also started taking pre-orders for the tablet for the same price, with the first stocks expected on May 20th.
[Update: Sony has updated their shipping date from April end to May end (28 May – 29 May). Wonder if the India launch would be pushed back due to this.]
