On Wednesday Sony Mobile announced the launch of the Xperia Z2 Tablet LTE, a Verizon Wireless exclusive featuring 4G connectivity. Customers looking for a slick tablet with LTE can pre-purchase the device beginning July 10 and receive a MDR-NC31EM Noise Cancelling headset for free (while suppliers last). The tablet won’t hit retail shelves until July 17.

According to the specs, the Xperia Z2 tablet sports a 10.1-inch TRILUMINOS screen with 16M colors and a resolution of 1920 x 1200. This screen is backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, Adreno 330 graphics, and 3 GB of RAM. Storage consists of up to 16 GB internal and a microSD card slot for up to 64 GB.

This tablet also packs an 8.1MP camera on the back featuring an 8x blog/africa-2″ title=”View all articles about africa here”>africa.com/technology-blog/digital” title=”View all articles about digital here”>digital zoom, and a 2.2MP camera on the front for taking great selfies. Other hardware highlights include an FM radio with RDS, a TV launcher, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wireless AC connectivity, GPS, MHL 3.0 support, IPX5/8 (Waterproof) & IP5X (Dust-resistant) certification, a 6000 mAh battery promising 10 hours of multimedia use, and more. Android 4.4 “KitKet” is the OS of choice.

Sony’s new device is also PlayStation certified, meaning you can play a number of games on PlayStation Mobile. The PlayStation App will also be pre-loaded, which offers PlayStation 4-focused features like second screen gaming, direct access to the PlayStation Store, and access to the PlayStation Network for chatting with friends.

“At just 0.25-inches slim and weighing less than a pound, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is so slim and lightweight, you will forget you’re holding it,” states the PR. “Even with its sleek build, you do not have to give a second thought about where you use it, since the Xperia Z2 Tablet is designed with a display that is scratch resistant and a body that is waterproof.”

By purchasing the tablet through Verizon Wireless, customers will receive six “blockbuster” movies. They will also receive an exclusive early access pass to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 when it becomes available for digital download, and 90 days of free music streaming through Sony’s Music Unlimited.

The 16 GB version of Sony’s new Xperia Z2 Tablet costs $499.99. The tablet will be made available nationwide at Verizon’s retail stores, select national retailers and dealers, and online starting July 17.
