Slim. Waterproof. Light.

Those are the three highlights Sony is pushing into the forefront with its newest tablet, the Xperia Z2.

Unveiled Tuesday, the company’s new foray into the tablet fray is being lauded by Sony as the best ever entertainment experience.

“The Xperia Z2 Tablet represents the pinnacle of tablet innovation and is a true flagship in our premium line. We have evolved our cutting-edge design to create the slimmest lightweight tablet matched with Sony’s latest technologies to deliver a unique user experience,” Sony Mobile CEO Kunimasa Suzuki says in a press release.

“And with our new range of dedicated accessories, you can further now enhance your tablet experience whether for work or play, at home or on the go.”

The tablet is only 6.4 millimetres thick and weighs in at 426 grams for the Wi-Fi model and 439 grams for the LTE/3G model.

“Sony’s acclaimed OmniBalance design creates an elegant shape that is delightfully slim yet reassuringly solid, providing balance and symmetry in all directions for a comfortable hold and beautiful look from all angles,” a company-issued release reads. “And as you would expect from Sony, this lightweight beauty is also entirely waterproof taking every day life in its stride.”

Using the company’s BRAVIA TV technology, the Xperia Z2 also features a 10-inch display screen with Live Colour LED display that provides sharp images in any light.

It’s not just the visuals that are boosted, either. The aural experience is the “clearest sound quality” thanks to the world’s first digital noise cancelling technology built in to the tablet. It will reduce ambient noise by 98 percent when used with the MDR-NC31EM Noise Cancelling headset.

The tablet will be made available, globally, next month.
