The tablets that Sony has made so far have not made much of an impact on the market, but they might be selling well enough to justify the launch of a new model. And if rumors are to be trusted, that's exactly what the company may working on right now. The Sony SO-03E, also referred to as the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, is said to be an upcoming 10.1-inch Android slate powered by capable hardware enclosed in a watertight body.
Do we have your attention already? Okay, then here's what is also rumored about the Sony Xperia Tablet Z: its screen will have a resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels, and the SoC chosen to provide it with computational power is the quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro (APQ8064) running at 1.5GHz. The tablet will be LTE-enabled, but we suppose a Wi-Fi-only model will be made as well. You'd also get 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, an 8MP main camera, and a 6000mAh battery. As we mentioned above, the Sony Xperia Tablet Z will be resistant to dust and water damage, all the while sporting a thickness of only 6.9 millimeters. Last but not least, Android 4.1 will come out of the box.
However, we have to stress that what you just read is nothing but a wild rumor, and the source does not provide any solid evidence to support it. But if the Sony Xperia Tablet Z truly exists, then there's a chance of hearing more about it next month at MWC.
