Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet prices start at $499.99 in the US, pre-orders available now
Launched in some European markets last month, Sony’s Xperia Z2 Tablet is now almost ready to make its debut in the US, too. As of today, the new tablet has its own product page at Sony Mobile’s US website, and it looks like it’s going to be available Stateside starting May 4 (in two color versions: black and white).

The Xperia Z2 Tablet 16GB will cost $499.99, while the 32GB model is going to be offered for $599.99. Both are Wi-Fi-only variants. Naturally, the tablet’s LTE versions will be more expensive (though we don’t know when they’re supposed to be released).

Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is definitely among the devices that you have to check out if you’re looking for a high-end slate. At only 0.25 inches (6.4mm), Sony’s new product is one of the thinnest tablets ever. It offers a waterproof body (IP58-certified), and sports a 10.1 inch display with 1920 x 1200 pixels. The rest of its features include a powerful quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 8.1MP rear camera, 2.2MP front-facing camera, 3GB of RAM, and a 6,000 mAh battery. Our own Xperia Z2 Tablet review is here - in case you want to know more about the slate.

Update: Pre-orders for both the Z2 Tablet 16GB and 32GB are already available via Sony Store (the first source link below).

10 inch android tablets should have at least 2560x1600. Samsung had 2560x1600 in 2012.

God this POS is insanely overpriced considering that you can get the Tab Pro 8.4 for just $369 online these days It should have been at least a QHD for that humongous size

It's hard to believe that Sony is pushing their Z2 tablet into the US instead of their excellent Z2 phone. Many potential customers would like to know when the Z2 coming to the US and for which carriers. Some time ago, I asked Sony via email about the Z1 Compact coming to the US, but never got a reply. Many months have passed, and Sony is still ignoring the US mobile market. I guess Sony thinks we all play games over here and watch videos on tablets. Maybe they are on to something :)

1920 ×1200 is fine for a 7 inch Nexus priced at $200. But $500 is more than I'd spend for a 10.1 inch tab with 1920 ×1200 res

Z2 tab is waterproof, premium build up, with a lot of new features and Hardware. So don't conpare it to a cheap tab

i love android but big tablet seem very useless to me. i would rather spend more and get a tablet that i can use to replace my laptop. i bought galaxy note 10.1, i couldnt find any use for it, returned it. saving up for surface pro now. mobile OS(android or iOS) tablet are only good till 7-8" and @#$% the resolution war. as long as its 250 ppi im good!

Yeah, next year I'll be in the market for a tablet and I'm hoping Sony will crank up the resolution because that's my only complaint with the Z2. The Nexus 10's display spoils me.
