Sony, due mid-year. Sony might not have bro­ken the tablet mould­with its new­est cre­ation, but it does break size records. The Xpe­ria Tablet Z, mod­elled af­ter its coming Xpe­ria Z smart­phone, features a slen­der 6.9mm thick­ness that makes this 10.1-inch tablet even slim­mer than the iPad Mini. It also weighs just 495g, un­der­cut­ting the com­pe­ti­tion by more than 100g. De­spite the slim-down, the Tablet Z of­fers a screen with more pix­els than full high-def­i­ni­tion (1920x1200), uses a quad-core pro­ces­sor and 2GB RAM, of­fers an 8-megapixel rear cam­era and comes with an NFC chip for quick pair­ing to com­pat­i­ble ac­ces­sories. It’s also de­signed to with­stand spills and splashes, thanks to a water-re­sis­tant coat­ing.
