Sony Xperia Z2 TabletSony has just brought to light a crackerjack of an Android tablet alongside the first-rate Xperia Z2 smartphone, gloating on the Mobile World Congress stage in Barcelona mostly about its anorexic looks. In fact, the Japanese claim the Xperia Z2 Tablet is the world’s slimmest and lightest waterproof tablet with an 8-inch or above display size.

Wow, that’s… specific. And no, we had no idea the race was on in the first place either. But it’s still something to know you can score an architectural marvel starting in March, right? Too bad Sony is completely mum on the 10-incher’s pricing, which is never a good sign.

Measuring an unbelievable 6.4 mm in thickness and tipping the scales at 439 grams, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is pretty “beautiful” on the inside too, as it packs a quad-core 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 chip and, get this, 3 GB RAM.

Crackerjack, remember? Meanwhile, the IPS LCD panel is not quite “Retina” material, but it delivers Full HD resolution, and then some: 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. What else? Oh, yes, like most other recent high-end Sony gadgets, the slate is shielded against water and dust.

Upon launch, the Z2 Tab shall run Android 4.4.2 KitKat, the latest flavor of Google’s OS, so everything is set for the 10-incher to take over the world. Well, not everything, as the on-board 6,000 mAh battery sounds skimpy. And that’s putting it kindly.
