MWC – Xperia Z4 Tablet

Sony have just announced their new Xperia Z4 Tablet here at MWC 2015.

MWC   Xperia Z4 Tablet


We had a very brief hands-on with the device before the crowds gathered around to flood the stands. I am as you know, a long time fan of Xperia Devices and was keen to see Sony’s next tablet device.
Here are some hands on shots of the white version.

This is a gorgeous device and feels great in the hands. I just can’t get over how light it actually feels. That would normally raise concerns over the build quality of the device but it feels solid. Up front we have got a glorious 2k resolution screen set in a 10″ panel which is crisp, clear and very bright. Powering the tablet is a Snapdragon 810 Octacore 64 Bit processor. This backed up with 3GB of Ram: the same as is found in the Z3 range. With 32 GB of on-board memory and a memory card slot which will swallow up to 128 GB microSD card. Camera-wise, we have an 8MP module on the back and a wide angle 5.1MP cam on the front, making this great for Skype and selfies.

As you would expect from an Xperia device it has remote play capability built in allowing your gaming to be continued regardless of what is going on with your TV, or if you have broken yours via some over-exuberant Wii gaming.

Sony have worked really hard to make the battery life on the Z4 Tablet last, as a result it will give enough power for 17 hours of video playback. You can travel half way around the world on one charge! Add stamnia mode into the mix and this is going to redefine what we expect from batteries on tablets for the next year.

Thinking of the people who actually want to work on their tablet, Sony have created the BKB 50 Bluetooth Keyboard. This will attach to the tablet turning it into a mini laptop. The screen can be tilted back 130 degrees and it has chiclet style keys with a trackpad on board to allow you to have a true laptop experience.
