The Sony Xperia Z Ultra phablet was first launched in late June 2013, since then the device was hitting various markets across the globe, although a Wi-Fi-only variant of the device was never available to customers. That is going to change, as the company is planning to make the device available to the customer with Wi-Fi connectivity, where the device is lacking with its phone capabilities. The device will be launch in Japan on 24th January with a price tag of 52,000 Yen (Rs 30,833 approximately).
Apart from the missing radios that would give it voice and data support on cellular networks, the Xperia Z Ultra tablet is similar to the company flagship smartphone Xperia Z Ultra. The company claims it as the world’s thinnest waterproof Full HD tablet packed with a 6.4-inch (1920×1080 pixels) display, a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage on board. The tablet also sports an 8.1-megapixel rear camera, while a 2.2-megapixel font-facing camera. The device supports an external microSD card slot and runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on board.
At the point of time, there is no word on for this product to other markets, when it will arrive. However, we can expect this device to have a global announcement in some time this year.
