Sony hasnt deviated much from the design of the original Tablet Z
Just like the recently launched Xperia 2 phone, both products are more refinements of an already top-notch product, and thats no bad thing at all
That means youre treated to a slim and light tablet, that weighs barely anything in your hand (just 439g, even less than last years), but youre given a whole 10.1-inches of screen
Fantastically thin, light and waterproof design
Snapdragon 801 provides more than enough power
Just like with the Xperia 2 smartphone, we cant help but wonder if Sony could have done even more with its update
While we have no complaints with a refinement of last years tablet, we would have loved to have seen a few surprises thrown in
The main problem we have with the Tablet 2 is the same as last years model
Its 16 9 aspect ratio
Many Android slates pack in the same screen ratio, a

Great power
Lovely screen
Waterproof
Perfect screen for movies

Not a lot of tangible improvements
Likely to be pricey
Expensive
It loses its battery far too quickly in standby mode
Huge bezels around the display don't look good and make the body needlessly big, and its slim design has resulted in the whole thing being a little flexible
