World's thinnest tablets roundup
Triluminos 1920x1200 pixels IPS screen on the Xperia Z2 Tablet. Called Live Colour LED, it uses red and green phosphor with blue LEDs, and has tailored color filters on top, that allegedly produce brighter and more evenly spread lighting. The end result should be more vibrant colors on the display, yet without the accompanying oversaturation of some displays, like the OLED ones.
Processor and memory
Sony's new fashion model is powered by the fast 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801, which is a vast improvement over the measly Snapdragon S4 Pro, that last year's Tablet Z shipped with. The Xperia Z2 Tablet also comes with 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory, expandable via a microSD slot. This processor will be just a step below Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 805, which won't be in devices before the summer, which will ensure the Z2 Tablet relevancy in the silicon department, at least until next year's edition.
Camera and sound
The 8 MP Exmor R camera sensor on the back of the tablet sports an LED flash, and all the bells and whistles you'd expect from Sony's camera app, like automatic Scene Recognition mode, or an HDR photo regime.

The Lenovo Yoga 10 set a new standard for battery and all should follow in that direction.

You forgot the Huawei Mediapad X1, they said the battery life can stand up to 5 days of continuous usage if I'm not wrong.

I really want to see that purple color in Sony tablets.
I was really disappointed not to see an 8" tablet from Sony.
And another point: the RAM on this tablet is 3GB. http://www.sonymobile.com/glob

specs seem good so far..
but seriously, why only 16GB internal storage?
at least give both 16/32 GB internal storage options..this is a tablet for goodness sake!!!
i know there is a micoSD card included but i think tablets should have at least 32GB internal storage..
i know that sony considers itself to be a high end maker of android phones and tablets but they need to step up the game with more internal storage optiions...

I like DAT BEZEL because it makes the tablet looks like a photo frame, and the specs are amazing, but I bet that this tablet will be expensive then? But nevertheless, good job Sony!

I don't think it really matter actually, 6mm thin or more when it's a 10.1 inch device. I'm not even sure if it's a bragging material. Well, my heart is set on tab pro 8.4.
