For once I’ve got a product selection spot on.
I read today, with some glee, that the “Sony Xperia Tablet Z nabs TechRadar’s Best Tablet title”, pushing “iPad mini into second place”.
So once again Sony Xperia Tablet Z obtains a “Best Tablet” title.
Whilst the Sony Xperia Tablet Z looks like an enlarged Sony Xperia Z, and there is nothing wrong with that (it’s a sleek piece if kit). The Tablet Z is a big-screen Android tablet with a stunning Bravia screen (anyone with a Sony TV will know what I mean).
Plus Sony has squeezed so much innovation and functionality into a superbly light package. As TechRadar recognised “a light tablet means holding it for long periods to read or watch movies is no longer a chore”.
For me the winning element must be the robustness of the device. As it’s not only light but waterproof too.
I’ve not had a lot of luck with devices in this respect. Having “destroyed” various iPhones whilst either in one’s jacket pocket whilst out hill walking or left on a window ledge in the bathroom whilst showering (I’ve assumed that moisture has built up within the device and turned the moisture tabs blue).
I love the fact that I can run water over the device to clean it. Drop it into the bath while I’m reading a Kindle book and fighting sleep and it comes away unscathed. Or even knock a bottle of merlot over it whilst using it as a cook book. It sure is resilient!
I love it, as I’m a typical clumsy male! Especially when I’m totally engrossed in my day job, tea and coffee becomes a very real risk to other delicate tablet devices.
As TechRadar states “It’s waterproof too – sure, you might not use that feature a whole lot, but it gives it an air of ruggedness that puts your mind at ease when manhandling something that costs so much.”
