Sony is releasing its avant-garde Xperia Tablet Z to U.S. consumers on May 29th 2013 instead of May 25th. The delay, though a matter of days, is probably disappointing for eager fans looking to grab Sony’s winner device.
The official Sony store website and retailer Newegg website have listed the launch date as May 29th. B&H will be making it available from June 4th, while Amazon has simply mentioned that the device is temporarily out of stock.
The Xperia Tablet Z is touted for its thin profile – just 6.9 mm thick – and user-friendly structure despite the big screen size of 10.1 inches. The most appealing feature is its resistance to dust and water. Sony’s online store has priced it at $499.99.
The Xperia Tablet Z runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm quad-core processor, with 2GB RAM. It has a storage capacity of 16 GB expandable to 64 GB via microSD card, 8.1MP rear camera, 2.2MP front camera, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
The device, which is already released in European countries, is proving to be popular with its top-notch features. U.S. release was initially set for May 24th, then changed to May 25th and now rescheduled to May 29th. Never mind, it is just around the corner for U.S. consumers.
