The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is the successor of the popular Xperia Tablet Z. Just like the original, the Z2 Tablet is water and dust resistant. The enhanced water proofing means it can now survive 1.5-meter dives for as long as 30 minutes.
Here's a video overview of the Z2 Tablet:
The Xperia Z2 Tablet looks exactly like the Tablet Z - the OmniBalance design scales impressively well to tablet size.
The new Z2 Tablet is powered by the Snapdragon 800 chipset with a 2.3GHz quad-core Krait 400 processor, Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. It comes with an 8MP rear cam and a 2MP front-facer.
As usual, the slate will be available in two flavors - Wi-Fi only and an LTE-capable model. It seems both versions will be offered with 16GB of internal storage, expandable via a microSD slot.
Even though the Xperia Z2 Tablet is a significant update over its predecessor, it does not look like such. Yes, Android 4.4 KitKat is lightning-fast, but the changes are only under the hood. And if it wasn't for the few different icons and premium apps (such as the OfficePro Suite), we wouldn't even know we are handling the new Z2 Tablet.
Still, the slate is a real pleasure to hold with very nice soft touch finish at the back. We've always considered the Tablet Z as one of the best looking tablets on the market and a year later we can safely say the same about its successor.
It may not be a major upgrade, but a worthy one for sure. Now if you already have the original Tablet Z, you will be getting all the same software enchantments with the upcoming KitKat upgrade. We guess that's at least another year that you can hold on to your gadget. But the Xperia Z2 Tablet is an easy one to recommend to newcomers.
