The 10.1-inch Android-system Xperia Z tablet, claimed to be the world’s thinnest and lightest (6.9mm and 495 grams, or just under a pound). It incorporates Sony’s NFC (Near Field Communication) One-Touch functionality, which lets users move audio, video and images and content among any of the 35 NFC-compatible Sony devices being released this year by touching the devices together. The 16GB version is available in April at $499 and there will be a 32GB version to follow at $599.
