Sony has announced today that the much sought after Sony Xperia Tablet Z is finally available in Australia! The Xperia Tablet Z is basically Sony’s tablet version of the Xperia Z, which has had some decent sales figures to date.
Much like the phone, the Xperia Tablet Z is also completely waterproof , dustproof and can be kept in freshwater for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1 metre. and comes in at an insanely thin 6.9mm. This makes it touted as the world’s thinnest 4G LTE tablet, which is also rocking a 1900×1200 resolution 10.1″ HD WUXGA display. The tablet weights in at 495g, has 8.1MP and 2.2MP cameras, 2GB of RAM and runs on Android 4.1 …
Have you been holding out on Sony’s Xperia Z, or have one and just aren’t sure where to take things next? Well, Sony have announced the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) will now be headed for their flagship device. Like the Xperia S (which was Sony’s first foray into AOSP), the Z can hope to improve upon collaborative efforts and benefit from the wide development community.
Sony have stated that the software isn’t presently intended for everyday use – everything is still quite fresh and from the looks of things, Sony are definitely hoping to build things from the ground up, so if you have the Xperia Z you should know what you’re doing before you go ahead and flash …
When Sony announced the Xperia Z smartphone, many Sony and Android fans were salivating at the sexy design (even one of my non-Android using friends,who has since bought one, kept going on about how sexy it looked). Its stunning looks were backed up by high end internal specs along with it being water and dust proof. Suffice to say, we were expecting big things from this Sony phone – but coming from a company that over the past few years has trailed the other manufacturers, this was probably a tall ask.
Well, some months after its original release in Japan subsequently followed by rolling global releases including its Australian release, analysts are predicting that Sony may have sold 4.6 …
Have you been (im)patiently waiting around for the Sony Xperia Tablet Z? Our very own Norman Ma has taken a voyage down to the Sydney Chatswood Sony Centre and lay his eyes on Sony’s latest and greatest tablet, the Xperia Tablet Z. From the looks of things it has a similar form factor to the Xperia Z and standard with the same waterproofing – you can now indulge in the guilty pleasure of ‘tablet on the toilet’ in peace.
Some major specifications are:
- 1200 x 1920 pixels, 10.1 inches (~224 ppi pixel density) display

- 2GB RAM
- 16GB internal memory, expandable up to 64GB microSD
- Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
- 8.1 megapixel camera

If you answered yes to either of those Xperia models, Sony’s got some exciting news for you. As promised, Sony, via its blog, announced that it is beginning to roll out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to its 2012 range of smartphones. In particular, the rollout has commenced with the Xperia T and some versions of the Xperia V, with the Xperia TX to follow next month.
With the upgrade, not only do you get the smoothness enhancements with Project Butter, but …
Is this real, or is this fake? We don’t know, but with Sony’s recent announcements about playing in the high-end of the market we would be very excited to see what else this device (if true) may offer.
Sony seem to be living up to their recent statement that they wish to only bring great quality handsets to market and leave the lower priced market to their competitors.
We are still drooling over the Xperia Z handset announced at CES 2013 and now Sony have confirmed the tablet variant, running (and wait for it….), a Quad Core Qualcomm 1.5Ghz APQ8064 CPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB Storage, a 10.1″ screen at an incredible 1920×1200 (powered by Sony’s Mobile Bravia Engine 2)! Camera wise there’s an 8.1 megapixel Exmore R camera out back, NFC, LTE, micro SD. Audiophiles will not be disappointed either with the inclusion of Sony’s S-Force virtual surround sound technology.
Now imagine all of this wrapped in …
Just in case you didn’t think the announcement of the Sony Xperia Z, or Sony’s Xperia product manager’s statements about providing high-end Sony devices was enough to convince you that Sony was wanting to play in the big league, the rumour mill has another piece of information that may excite more than a few people out there.
Rumour has it that Sony plans to release a Sony Xperia Tablet Z offering a 10.1 inch 1080p display (perhaps utilising a Bravia engine), 1.5Ghz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB storage, 6,000mAh battery, LTE compatibility, 8.1mp rear camera, 2.1mp front facing camera, water and dust proof capabilities, all whilst shipping with Android 4.1.2 .

Soon after Sony wowed many of us with the CES unveiling of the Sony Xperia Z, Sony’s Xperia Product Manager Stephen Sneeden made another interesting announcement:
We’re ready to be a premium smartphone provider, logically then, at the very entry level is where you lose the ‘Sonyness’. And it’s where you cannot implement some of these wonderful things from Sony at such a low cost, we might leave the very entry tier to some other manufacturers.
Premium smartphone provider… ‘Sonyness’… leave the very entry tier… It sounds like Sony is doing away with the low end of the market to raise their brand image (and thus desirability).
As you may recall, the Sony Xperia Z offers killer specs giving …
It’s that time of the year again. The time in which we all go on holiday, return to work and enjoy some mouth watering news from the one and only Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Sony has given us what we’ve all been waiting for. Yes, it’s a beauty of a phone and yes – it has some killer specs. Sony appears to have hit the nail right on the head and dished up some A-grade stuff. The Xperia Z is their latest flagship …
Sony, the maker of James Bond’s smartphone of choice – the Sony Xperia TX – has allegedly been working on a new flagship device codenamed “Yuga”.
To help with the drool factor, Russian website Mobile-review.com has leaked some new shots of the Yuga showing off some sleek minimalistic design cues. The Yuga follows Sony’s rectangular slab design – a virtually all-glass front, this time with very minimal inserts along the edges for the speaker and microphone, no hardware buttons and the “SONY” branding along the top. On the reverse, glass appears to be used again (much like the Nexus 4) along with a camera and “XPERIA” branding.
On the inside, the Yuga will reportedly have a 1080p 5 inch display, …
