Sony might announce a new tablet at MWC 2014

Sony Castor tablet
It has been almost a year since Sony announced the Xperia Tablet Z. The time seems right for a successor to step on stage, don't you think? Well, that's probably what's going to happen in the near future, if rumors are to be believed. According to @evleaks, who's been a great source of insider information on all things mobile, Sony is working on a new tablet bearing the "Castor" codename. 

Currently, there's very little information about the Sony Castor. It is believed to be a tablet powered by Qualcomm's MSM8974-AB SoC, which is more or less a Snapdragon 800 on a high-protein diet. Or in other words, its CPU and GPU can be clocked higher than those of the Snapdragon 800 found in today's high-end smartphones. Also, the Sony Castor will be available in several variants – one with a cellular radio on board and another limited only to Wi-Fi connectivity. 

Of course, we're assuming that the Sony Castor runs Android. The source does not specify what's the OS chosen for the device, but we doubt that Sony would release a Windows-based slate all of a sudden.

If real, the Sony Castor will most likely make its debut during the MWC 2014 expo, which is to take place in Barcelona next month. In the meantime, we'll pass along any further information about it that we come across.
