Verizon announced the Xperia Z2 tablet for preorder on their Facebook page.
The waterproof tablet will be exclusive to Verizon and will set you back $499 with a 2 year agreement or $599 without.
The Xperia Z2 is certainly not a tablet that needs to hide from the best selling devices in the space, below we draw a quick summary compared to the iPad Air.
Here is an overview of the specifications of the Sony Xperia Z2:
- Display: 10.1″
- OS: Android 4.4
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 801
- RAM: 3 GB
- GPU: Adreno 330
- Storage: 16 GB (+ microSD)
- Camera: 8.1MP rear, 2.2MP back
- Weight 439g
So you can argue when it comes to the better operating system but on everything listed above it is superior to the Apple iPad Air. The screen is bigger (10.1″ vs 9.7″), you will get three times the RAM, a faster processor, better rear and front camera and it is thinner as well.
