Sony Xperia Z4 tablet delayed in the U.K.; 4G LTE model to ship on June 17th
Originally set to launch in the U.K. today, the 4G LTE version of the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet will now start shipping in the region on June 17th. The company revised the listing on the Sony Mobile online store to show the new shipping date. Interestingly, the Wi-Fi only variant of the slate has been removed from the site for the second time.

The Xperia Z4 Tablet is priced at the equivalent of $884 USD and comes with a 10.1-inch screen carrying a 1600 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a 299ppi pixel density. Under the hood is a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 SoC which contains an octa-core 2GHz CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of internal storage. Those requiring additional memory can use the 128GB capacity microSD slot. An 8.1MP camera adorns the back of the slab while a 5MP snapper can be found in front, ready to snap selfies. Keeping the lights on is a 6000mAh battery and Android 5.0 is pre-installed.

The Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet carries an IP68 certification against dust and water. This allows the tablet to be submerged in water as deep as 9.84 feet and emerge undamaged. The Bluetooth Keyboard BKB50 is included in the package, which obviously improves the typing experience on the device. It also partially explains the pretty steep price of the tablet.

And it will never ship to the US because Sony hates America.

Of course... Sony doesn't care of earning money... Wake up, Sony doesn't hate America, America hates Sony, or at least doesn't care enough to excuse from Sony part huge investments, without endangering the business....

I have to say, if Sony puts enough effort into promoting their phones and tablets here in the US, they'll sure make a fortune out of us. Seriously, such beautiful devices, all waterproof, all that's enough to convince us. Sadly no one has even heard of Sony phones... Tragic.

verizon carries the Z2, and happily, Sony includes band 17 on international versions of the Z3 (I've got one that works great) that's available on Amazon, so it will run LTE on att. So one way or another I think we'll be able to get one in the US

Maybe they rounded it from 2.5k to 2k to make people understand. Most people dont know what 2.5k is
