Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet
The Z2 Tablet is now out in the UK

Following last month’s unveiling, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet has been released in the UK, with the Android-powered slate available from £399.

Having entered the realms of reality alongside the Samsung Galaxy S5 rivalling Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone during MWC 2014, the slim line tablet has been given a low-key UK release, going on sale through Sony’s own online store. The sale has started following a round of pre-order availability earlier this month.

Available in 16GB and 32GB Wi-Fi only options, as well as a 16GB Wi-Fi plus 4G offering, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet models cost £399, £449 and £499 respectively.

In a further effort to tempt potential consumers away from the lure of the market-leading iPad lines, Sony has confirmed that the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet can be paired with an additional three year warranty for just 1 pence.

Powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet specs sheet is bolstered by 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU.

Lining up at a minimalist 6.4mm thick and just 426g in weight, the 10.1-inch Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet features a 1080p Full HD Triluminous display and benefits from a claimed 10 hour battery life.

With an 8.1-megapixel camera mounted on the tablet’s rear, a secondary, 2.2-megapixel snapper sits on the device’s fore.

Although the Z2 Tablet is now available for purchase, the eagerly awaited Sony Xperia Z2 handset will not hit the UK until next month.

Price is too high.

I'm not an Apple fan but have to admit that the iPad is the tablet to buy. If the Sony costs just as much without any stand-out features, it's shooting itself in the foot.

At least the 3 year warranty for 0.01 is attractive.

I'm ordering mine next week. I don't think there is a better specced tablet on the market right now.

You mean like the built in digital noise cancellation, waterproof certification, dust proof, Playstation certification, the state of the art processor, two HD 1080p cams, wafer thin profile, call taking ability, slimmest and lightest 10 inch tab . . .

What stand out features are you looking for?

The key missing feature is the high-res screen. The Nexus 10 showed the way 16 months ago, so its disappointing to see Sony's flagship only having 1920x1200.

Once you've experienced a high-res screen, you can't go back to a lower res one.

I had preordered from Sony Mobile and i still have not even received and info about my Preorder yet let alone a shipping date? Might cancel and rebuy from the Sony store

I kind of agree. I've got an iPad Air and three android tablets (with many of the same apps, though some I need are only on the ipad). I prefer using the air at home and at the office when in single apps - it feels better, is smoother, has better audio and I prefer the screen. I do like my lg g pad (good size and feel to hold, though a bit slow at times and could do with a better screen & audio). After that it's my nexus and then galaxy tab. I use android for my phone and it's past being for techies only. My past experience with Apple and android tablets has been that the ipad lasts very well and does what I need. Android ones have been, to date, not so durable, and the odd glitch here and there, but overall behind in hardware. I liked the z tablet and I'm very interested in the z2. I had hoped that the note 12.2 might have been good but I found it too heavy (Good if Sony did one the same size and half the weight - and made better use of the screen estate!)
