Sony’s ultra-thin Xperia Z4 Tablet is now available through Telstra
Sony today announced the local availability of its Android-powered Xperia Z4 Tablet. The 4G-enabled Z4 Tablet is available from Telstra retailers as of today for both on-contract and outright purchases. Outright, the Z4 Tablet retails for AUD$888. On a 24 month contract, the Z4 Tablet starts at AUD$55 per month with 1GB of data.
A Wi-Fi only variant of the Xperia Z4 Tablet will be available from Sony's own stores for AUD$799 towards the end of September.
When the Z4 Tablet was first unveiled in March, Sony claimed that it was the lightest and thinnest 10.1-inch device of its kind. While that is still technically true, Samsung's newly unveiled Galaxy Tab S2 weighs the same 389g and is half a millimetre thinner (5.6mm vs 6.1mm). The Galaxy Tab S2 does however have a slightly smaller screen, measuring in at 9.7-inches.
Sony has fitted out the Z4 Tablet with a 2GHz Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, a 2560×1600 10.1-inch display, 6000mAh battery, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The Z4 Tablet can be submerged in water as deep as 1.5m for up to 30 minutes. As with Sony's Xperia M4 Aqua smartphone, it features a cap-less USB connector.
