Sony reveals Xperia Tablet Z2 pricing, matches Apple's iPad

The next generation of Sony and Samsung tablets are coming to Australia.

Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z2 will be made available in three different models when it comes to Australia, all of which will be priced on par with Apple’s iPad Air.

Sony’s Wi-Fi tablets will only be available in Black, while the 4G model will be offered in Black and White

The 16GB and 32GB Wi-Fi only models of the Tablet Z2 will be priced at $599 and $699 respectively. A 4G variant of the 32GB Tablet Z2 will also be made available for $749. The pricing of Sony’s tablets mirror that of similarly specced Apple iPad Airs.

The Android 4.4 KitKat tablet features a 10in, 1920x1080 resolution screen. The 6mm thin body, which weighs less than Apple’s iPad Air at 439 grams, is resistant to dust and can be submerged in freshwater 150cm deep for thirty minutes.

Inside is a quad-core 2.3GHz CPU, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of flash storage. Support for microSDXC memory cards allows storage to be expanded by 64GB.

It also has a 6000mAh battery, a rear 8.1MP camera and a front 2.1MP camera, both of which can record video in Full HD 1080p quality.

Sony has not revealed when the tablet will be launched in locally; however, listing the tablets’ pricing on its Australian website is a good sign it should be happening in the near future.

Rival Samsung announced last week the pricing of two new tablets. The company’s 10.1in TabPro will be priced to compete with Sony’s Tablet Z2 and Apple’s iPad Air from $599.

Samsung also announced its 12.2in Galaxy NotePro will be available in Australian stores this week priced from $1099.

Good Gear Guide has contacted Sony Australia's representatives regarding the tablet's Australian availability. This article will be updated with the company's response.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
