Announced bright and early in Japan today is the Sony Xperia Tablet Z that we’ve been hearing about. As you’d expect, this 10.1-inch Android 4.1 tablet features the same design language as its smartphone counterpart, but it’s what’s inside that really sells this device: a Qualcomm 1.5GHz quad-core APQ8064 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, a 10.1-inch 1,920 x 1,200 screen (with Mobile Bravia Engine 2), an 8.1-megapixel Exmor R camera, NFC, LTE (MDM9215M radio), microSD expansion and Sony’s very own “S-Force” virtual surround sound technology. Amazingly, these are all packed tightly into a 6.9mm-thick, 495g-heavy body, and it’s both waterproof and dustproof. We’ll update you guys once we get hold of info on pricing and availability.

Looks like the Galaxy Tab 10.1 might finally have some real competition on its hands, with Toshiba announcing the AT200 tablet — which we’ve been hearing rumors about for the past few days. It’s a 10.1-inch Android tablet that measures in at just 7.7mm thick — that’s nearly a full mm thinner than the Samsung. The 10.1-inch LCD is 1,280 x 800 and is powered by a TI OMAP 4430 processor at 1.2GHz that can be paired by up to 64GB of memory — augmented by microSD. There’s a five megapixel webcam around back, a two megapixel shooter facing forward, and up to eight hours of battery life is promised. What hasn’t been promised is a price or a release date, but we’re told it’ll ship sometime before the end of the year.
There’s another picture after the break, plus full details in the press release. We’ll be back with full hands-on when possible.
