Photos and manual of the Wi-Fi-only Xperia Z Ultra tablet appear at FCC, still waterproof
We heard that Sony's take on the small tablet arena would simply be to issue a Wi-Fi-only version of the Xperia Z Ultra, and it seems that the SGP412 device that we caught in November making the rounds at the FCC, is precisely that beast.

As such, it will sport a 6.4″ screen diagonal, Snapdragon 800 processor, 8 MP camera, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot, and have a 3000 mAh battery, all wrapped in a waterproof body, but without a baseband radio for cellular connectivity.

Speaking of waterproof, the FCC updated its listing for the Sony SGP412 device with actual photos, and we can easily see an Xperia Z Ultra chillaxing in a pool of water during testing of its waterproof claims. The battery is also shown, being a slightly less capacious unit than what we have in the version with cellular connectivity, so all that is left now is to wait for the eventual MWC announcement of a Wi-Fi-only Xperia Z Ultra, with the respective price reduction one would be expecting from a version without the expensive baseband radio.

The Xperia Z Ultra's camera has Sony's Exmor RS sensor, so in low light conditions it will take good pictures, I see no need of the LED flash on the Z Ultra.
If you really want Sony's big mama phablet with an LED flash, get the Xperia T2 Ultra.

I never use flash. It makes objects look unnatural. If I take a picture, I want it to look just like in real life.

Even worse is the fact that it's wifi only, tablets are supposed to be mobile devices, but how can It be mobile with wi fi only?

This model is for those who want to use it as a small tablet as its screen size is close to 7 inch.
If you want to talk with it, then buy the cellular model. Easy as that.

Then get the cellular model... Duh. Also, not many people share your opinion, because about 80% of tablets are Wifi only.
