Gadget : Sony Xperia tablet Z: Sleek and water resistant

The Xperia tablet Z arrives with a completely new design in the tablet world, although it should be familiar to anyone who’s already seen Sony’s Xperia Z smartphone. It features the same “OmniBalance” look, uniform thickness and straight edges.
The display’s resolution has been bumped up to 1,920 x 1,200, while the tablet runs Android 4.1.2 on a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro, with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage – all the while weighing in below 18 ounces.
Like the Sony Xperia Z smartphone, there’s also water and dust protection, which makes it a relatively unique property in the tablet market. Priced at about Shs1.4m, it races to be one of the best androids tablets ever manufactured.
Even with the slim silhouette of 6.9 mm, the Xperia Tablet Z still manages to house everything you would expect in a 2013 Android tablet. Alongside 16GB of storage, there’s memory expansion through microSD, FM radio, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, an infrared blaster and HDMI through a MHL-compatible micro-USB port. That blaster, which resides along the centrr of the top edge, means the tablet can double up as a multi-talented remote.

The good
• Wide viewing angles.
• Infrared blaster and remote apps easy to set up.
• Water-resistant, stylish design.

The Bad
• charger, temperamental micro-USB port.
• Frustrating waterproof covers.
