Sony takes a Dip with the World’s Slimmest and Lightest Waterproof Tablet


Sony Xperia Z2 v1Recently I had the privilege in taking a dip with one of the worlds leaders in technology at a conference.

No I didn’t go swimming with Bill Gates or Tim Cook. I happened to play with Sony’s new Xperia Z2 Tablet while taking a bath.

The Xperia Z2 Tablet is Waterproof, dust and scratch resistant. In fact you can take pictures with it while swimming in freshwater for up to 30 minutes or even in 1.5m of water. The only thing to remember is to close the covers for the micro USB, micro Sim and memory card slots.  This makes the tablet ideal for your camping, canoeing and snorkeling vacations and even better for watching your show online while spending the night in the bath tub.

Sony’s tablet skills extends well beyond the water, with a awe inspiring design that has created a ultra slim tablet of 6.4 mm and a weight of less than 440 grams.

With a name like Sony, you know this tablet has the best to offer in display technology.  Optimized for mobile use it comes with Sony’s Live Colour LED (brand new) technology which provides the user with a device with increased colour depth and gradation.  The 10.1” Full HD TRILUMINOS display provides a razor sharp 1920 x 1200 high quality image resolution.
