The Xperia Z is the Japenese electronics giant's answer to the iPad, with a 10.1-inch screen, and yet it is thinner than even the iPad Mini. It features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and an 8.1-megapixel camera.
 
The tablet also boasts water and dust resistance, employing protective covers for its ports like the Xperia Z smartphone unveiled at this year's CES. The tablet and smartphone will be able to work in unison, thanks to NFC chips that allow one-touch sharing between the devices.

The new Sony tablet has thus far only been confirmed for a Japanese release, with contracts available with NTT Docomo, but we can likely expect expansion to other countries in the near future.
 
Rival firm LG also unveiled the Optimus G Pro, which comes with a 5-inch screen, marking the latest entry into the “phablet” sector, essentially created and ruled by Samsung. It will offer a higher resolution, with 440 pixels per inch, and a 3,000 mAh battery to compensate for the increased power required by the screen.
