Following its debut at MWC earlier this year, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet will finally hit the shelves of a U.S. carrier later this month.
Verizon today announced that it will begin taking pre-orders for the Xperia Z2 Tablet tomorrow, June 10, with an in-store launch scheduled for July 17. Pricing will be set at $499.99 with a two-year contract or $599.99 commitment-free. Those that pre-order the Xperia Z2 Tablet from Verizon will receive a Sony Digital Noise Canceling Headset MDRNC31EM for free.
The Verizon-flavored Xperia Z2 Tablet is largely similar to the Wi-Fi model that debut earlier this year. It’s got a 10.1-inch 1080p display, 8.1-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot and a 6000mAh battery. Its body is also IP55 and IP58 rated for resistance to dust and water. Rounding out the Xperia Z2 Tablet’s spec list is compatibility with Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
It’s been several years since Sony and Verizon teamed up to launch a device in the U.S., so it’s nice to see those two coming together once again. And while the Xperia Z2 Tablet isn’t the newest Android slate on the block, it’s still a pretty respectable piece of kit, especially with its super-thin 0.25-inch (6.35mm) thick body.
