Following its impressive Xperia smartphone showing at CES earlier this month, Sony has revealed an Android tablet companion with some eye-popping hardware - the Xperia Tablet Z.
We previously had seen that the Xperia Tablet Z was coming soon, but now it's official. For specs, it features 10.1-inch screen with 1920-by-1200-pixel resolution, Qualcomm 1.5GHz quad-core processor, NFC, LTE, and an 8.1-megapixel camera. The device runs Android 4.1 and weighs 17.4 ounces.
While that quite the list, the most impressive factor on the tablet is its incredible 6.9mm thickness.

Winning With Windows 8
How do you solve a problem like Windows 8?
A major advertising and marketing campaign for a major software release—from the major computer software company in the world, no less—receives little more than a lackluster response from consumers and businesses. So while retailers should approach Windows 8 and its associated hardware with caution, they may still eke out some gains by offering systems that have been specifically designed for the new operating system.
Unlike some previously disastrous introductions, such as Windows Vista and Windows Millennium Edition, there are no glaring flaws in the latest version of Microsoft’s operating system. Users haven’t been plagued by hardware compatibility issues as they have in the past, or faced with major software upgrades to make programs work with the new OS. And cost hasn’t been an obstacle. Microsoft offers an upgrade version of the software for just $40.
