THE UN­DER­WA­TER TABLET

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS - By Nidhi Sin­gal

SONY'S LAT­EST IN­NO­VA­TION is a wa­ter-re­sis­tant de­vice that can go in the rain or the bath tub.

The Xpe­ria Tablet Z is like a larger ver­sion of the Xpe­ria Z smart­phone and has a sim­i­lar straight line de­sign and wa­ter-re­sis­tant body. The glass back has been re­placed by a soft, matt-fin­ish rub­berised rear though. At 6.9mm, this 10.1-incher is touted to be the world's thinnest tablet. All ports (charg­ing, mi­croSD, SIM and 3.5mm) are tightly cov­ered with flaps to keep it wa­ter proof. And yes we tested it in wa­ter and it is still work­ing.

Like the Sony Xpe­ria smart­phones this tablet too is heav­ily skinned. There are small tweaks that en­hance the over­all func­tion­al­ity of the tablet. The tablet comes with some of the best spec­i­fi­ca­tions in town and its Antutu Score of 20050 was much higher than the Samsung Note 510 17313. You feel this su­pe­ri­or­ity in any­thing you do. The tablet has got an aver­age bat­tery backup that lasted us close to five days with a cou­ple of hours of us­age ev­ery day.
