Watch the Sony Xperia Tablet Z get torn down on video
There's a number of ways you can void a gadget's warranty – hack it, break it, drop it in a pot of boiling soup and let it simmer for 15 minutes, just to name a few. Taking it apart in order to see what makes it tick works just as well, and that's exactly what happened to this Sony Xperia Tablet Z unit that you're about tho see below. 

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z teardown begins with cracking the device open. Sounds easy? Well, think again. Since the tablet is resistant to dust and water damage, it comes as no surprise that taking its back cover off isn't a job for everyone. Once that's unglued, the delicate part dismantling process begins, starting with the Sony-made lithium-ion battery weighing 130 grams and then moving on to the smaller components. There's plenty of glue and tape holding the Xperia Tablet Z together, which leads us to believe that its repairability score might not be very high.

A summary of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z disassembling is embedded below so feel free to watch it for further details.

This is very nice, but i wouldnt buy it YET because the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus is coming out. It is 10.1" with a resolution of 2560x1600 and a very fast processor.

Yup, when the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus comes out, there will be comparisons between these 2 tablets.

Exactly! The GT 3 plus has a better processor than the Xperia Tab z. I hate TouchWiz so when i get GT 3 Plus i will install Cyanogen mod 10.1 (or newer versions if they come out)

The TouchWiz Nature UX is not bad, I kinda like it, why install a mod when you have a beasty tablet?

I will download the mod not to make my tablet faster, but to make it better looking. The TouchWiz UX is absolutely terrible.
