Sony Xperia Tablet Z specs leak

Sony's next slate looks set to pack a quad-core processor and 10.1in 1080p screen

Sony's on a roll – its Xperia Z smartphone netted a CES 2013 Hot Stuff Award and its Xperia Tablet S (pictured) is sitting pretty in Stuff's Top 10 Tablets. Now it looks like Sony's set to add an Xperia Tablet Z to its line-up, with a rumoured spec list leaking online.

The Xperia Tablet Z is – according to the Xperia Info Twitter account – set to arrive with a 10.1in, 1080p screen, a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM to keep things ticking over. It'll also come packing 32GB of internal storage, a 6,000mah battery and 8.1MP and 2.2MP cameras. Naturally it'll arrive running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, too.

Connectivity options for the tablet – codenamed "Pollux" – will reportedly include Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0, along with LTE capabilities.

Design-wise, the Xperia Tablet Z is set to take cues from the Sony Xperia Z – no surprises there, but we hope it keeps the "folded-page" design from the Xperia Tablet S, which makes reading magazines and books such a pleasure. Particularly since it's set to be waterproof and dustproof – finally, you can use your tablet in the bath. If you like living dangerously.

Expect the Sony Xperia Tablet Z to arrive in the latter half of 2013.
