Very impressive! I bet there are already other manufacturers looking at releasing thinner and lighter tablets which would compete with this. This may be a very good product for Sony if the price is in the right range at release time.

This tablet might also be for people that love to read under water or spend sometimes under water and still be connected to the outside world.

My only concern is that it should at least come closer in features with Ipad 3 0r 4

Xperia Tablet Z is now the world's thinnest and the lightest tablet. One of its high-end specs is that is is fully waterproof! I don't know why one might need a fully waterproof tablet device but I guess there are tablet users who are interested in taking underwater photographs rather than beach photos despite the difficulties in diving with a tablet in your hand!

Joke aside, this tablet has a clean look and comes with a choice of black and white. The price and the release date is not known yet for this tablet. Device is expected to appear on the Japanese shelves in spring 2013.

Although Tablet-Z does not come anywhere near Google Nexus 10 screen resolution, it is 6.9 mm (0.26 inches) thick and weighs 495 grams (i.e. 1.09 lbs). Very impressive.

Sony is on the way to achieving tablets as light and thin as a credit card.

You can catch a glimpse of this tablet here. For those of you wishing to compare iPad 4 with Tablet-Z, have a read of this article. Parts Search
