Today has been bringing us a lot of new info about the Sony Xperia Tablet Z. We're seeing benchmarks
, photo samples
, and a hands-on
, and now we've got the really important information: when you will be able to buy it and how much the tablet will cost. Just be warned, Sony is aiming for this to be a premium tablet, and that means premium pricing.
Sony is saying that the tablet will be available in Q2 of 2013, and so far only the US models have gotten pricing. In the US, there will be models in both white and black, and have two storage tiers - 16GB and 32GB. For the WiFi-only models, it will be $500 for the 16GB and $600 for the 32GB, which is pretty expensive, even when you consider the tablet has a 1920x1200 display, 8MP rear camera, Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, and is waterproof.
There is also an LTE model in the works, but so far that is Europe only, and there's no pricing available for that.
What do you think? Is the Xperia Tablet Z worth the premium pricing?
