Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet prices start at $685 in Europe, 3-year warranty offered for €1


Yesterday, we revealed the prices of Sony’s Xperia Z2 smartphone, and today we can also take a look at how much the Xperia Z2 Tablet will cost in Europe.

Announced at the same time with the Z2 smartphone at MWC 2014, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is the successor to last year’s Sony Xperia Tablet Z, and brings quite a bunch of improvements, including Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 10.1-inch Full HD display with Live Colour LED technology, and S-Force Surround Sound stereo speakers - all in a very thin (6.4mm) and very light (426 grams) waterproof case.

So, what’s the price of Sony’s new Z2 Tablet? Well, the 16GB Wi-Fi-only variant costs around $685 (€499) in most European markets. The 32GB Wi-Fi model is offered for $729 (€549), while the 16GB LTE version is priced at $864 (€629).

Sony expects to deliver the Xperia Z2 Tablet on March 18 or March 19 to customers who are pre-ordering it in the UK. The tablet should arrive in early April in other European markets, including Germany and France. Sony is offering an extended 3-year warranty for just €1 in most European countries. It appears that this 3-year warranty is available for free to UK customers.

For the moment, we don’t know when the Xperia Z2 Tablet will be released in the US. But we’ll let you know as soon as we find out.

I want more Vaios....! This device is beautiful and everything, but I'm afraid it's just no use for me...

Whoa what? That's not nice, although that's about €500 which is the iPad Air and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition With S-Pen Sylus and Wacom Digitizer Running On Custom TouchWiz Android Interface price. The 3-year warrant sounds pretty awesome though, but I still cannot get over the 6000mAh battery, it should be like 9000.

The screen is better than that of the air from what I've heard. No TouchWiz is a positive. This is lighter and thinner than the iPad Air. The battery life of the first one was good, with a more efficient processor and stamina mode, this should be even better. This is better than them. It SHOULD be priced like them.

This is just a FHD screen, no way it is better than iPad Air or Galaxy Note/Tab pro screen. Sony was never known for good screen. From GSMArena reviews. Web browsing: Xperia: 7.19 iPad: 10.10 Video playback: Xperia: 7.37 iPad: 12:49 No way Xperia will have a better batterylife.

Sony's phones haven't had screens with good viewing angles and have had displays with screen lotteries in recent products. This was never the case with the tablet Z. People that have seen all 3 are saying the Z has the best screen. SamsungArena don't wait until the tablet's batteries are broken in. Sony's batteries take for this to extend their overall lifecycle.

so it's cheaper than the z2 despite the similar internals and the bigger display? the 20.7mp camera and phone radios must really be that expensive.

Sony come on learn something, $450 is the perfect price point. There are already many cost cutting like 1200p display, small battery, led flash,etc. Please price sensibly.

Overpriced. There's no way this is going to tackle in the iPad and Note line with that price.

I am a little worried about that 6000mAh's inside the tablet. You know, we are talking about Snapdragon 801 with 3GB RAM and a FHD screen here...waiting for battery tests~! o.o

And then Asian countries will get it at a cheaper price, as with other Sony products. Time to put up my Tablet Z for sale.

Wow the price is a little steep for a resolution not in par on the current newer 10 incher tablets. Battery capacity is also smaller. I hope Sony can sell this well...

Hopefully they will mark down the price on the XPERIA Z tablet

$729? If I'm into a 10"+ Android tablet, I'd rather get a Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1/12.2, Note Pro 12.2/Note 10.1 2014 Edition. Cons: 1920 x 1200 pixels 224 ppi 6000 mAh battery No flash

This is the price in Europe, everything is more expensive here than in the US. e.g. £550 iPhone 5S = $918

This is a disappointment this was the same reason i turned off for tablet z. It was more expensive than ipad 4 and nexus 10(unofficial, imported)
