It’s the first tablet with digital noise canceling technology built in “for a truly immersive sound experience.”

It features “unique accessories to further enhance your tablet experience for work and play”.

That’s a lot of firsts. So, what does it all mean?


According to Sony: “The Xperia Z2 Tablet is the world’s first tablet display with Live Colour LED display, providing bright natural colours and perfectly sharp images in any light, thanks to Sony’s latest BRAVIA TV technology expertise. The 10.1-inch Full HD Triluminos Display for mobile is matched with Sony’s new Live Colour LED technology, resulting in colours that have never been so real, more natural or so true to life. Add to the Sony’s unique X-Reality for mobile intelligent engine that analyses each image for optimal colour, sharpness and contrast while super resolution reproduces lacking pixels to ensure you get the ultimate viewing experience every time.”


According to Sony: “The Xperia Z2 Tablet offers the clearest sound quality with Sony’s Front Surround audio technology, that lets you enjoy dynamic sound. And now you can enjoy uninterrupted audio when you’re on the move, even on noisy trains or planes, thanks to the world’s first digital noise cancelling technology built into a tablet that reduces ambient noise by up to 98 percent when paired with the MDR-NC31EM Noise Cancelling headset.”


According to Sony: “With the Xperia Z2 Tablet, Sony has developed a tablet that is both beautifully sleek and portable. Using premium materials, every single detail has been carefully crafted to create the world’s slimmest (only 6.4mm) and lightest (only 426g) waterproof tablet on the planet, making it extremely portable and comfortable to hold, even with just one hand. 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. And as you would expect from Sony, this lightweight beauty is also entirely waterproof, taking every day life in its stride.”
