The Xperia Tablet Z utilizes the same design as the Xperia Z flagship, inch by inch. It is a lot bigger, of course. The Tablet Z features a 10.1-inch LED-backlit 1920x1200 display and has the same IP57-certifications for water and dust resistance as the Xperia Z. We had some time to play with the screen and we came to believe it has better contrast and viewing angles than the Xperia Z display.
Perhaps the LED-backlight gives the desire boost in the quality.
Sony advertises the Xperia Tablet Z as the slimmest slate so far with its 6.9mm thickness. While this is nice, what really stands out is the tablet's weight - just 495 grams. The Xperia Tablet Z feels so light in hands and yet so solid that it feels right from the first encounter. We were really impressed with the build quality in the same time, the light weight and ultra slim profile.
The Xperia Tablet Z is powered by the same Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset as the Xperia Z, but comes with an 8.1MP rear camera with 1080p video recording with HDR available on both stills and videos. It also features a 2.2MP front snapper, also capable of 1080p video recording. The rest of the specs include 16GB internal storage expandable via a microSD card slot, 2GB of RAM and LTE connectivity (depending on the model).
Sony will be offering the Xperia Tablet Z in black and white colors. The paintjob is exactly the same as the Xperia Z smartphone. The back of the slate uses a matte plastic that looks rather fingerprint-resistant unlike the glass Xperia Z.

The Sony Xperia Z uses a Snapdragon APQ8064 S4 Pro chipset, which is the fastest to currently power an Android phone. It packs four Krait CPU cores clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 GPU. That same chipset ticks inside the Oppo Find 5, Google Nexus 4, the LG Optimus G and the HTC DROID DNA / Butterfly.
The Krait cores are fast, no doubt about that - two of them were coming only slightly short of a quad-core Cortex-A9 CPU and four make up a real beast. And the Xperia Z doesn't disappoint. It comes up on top in Benchmark Pi (which is all about single-threaded performance) and it's also on the top in Linpack (which focuses on multithreading).
