Sony’s Xperia Z4 Tablet Looks to Replace your Laptop, But Can it?

March 10, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Last week at Mobile World Congress, Sony announced the Xperia Z4 Tablet. It’s their latest 10-inch tablet, and surprisingly it was announced before the Xperia Z4. It’s meant to replace the Xperia Z2 Tablet, as the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is a smaller tablet, and not really competing with the 10-inch Xperia Z4 Tablet. Sony has been making their tablets pretty thin and light for quite a while now, and the Xperia Z4 Tablet is no different.

In the latest video put out by Sony, about the Xperia Z4 Tablet, we see that there’s a nice Bluetooth Keyboard connected to it. So Sony’s looking to replace your laptop. But the question is, can a tablet replace a laptop? For some, yes. For others, no. While yes you can get a lot done on a tablet, a laptop still does way more and is way more useful. I’ve seen a few people replace their laptops with tablets and Bluetooth keyboards though.

Sony’s Mobile business has been struggling for quite some time now. So we’re hoping that the Xperia Z4 Tablet can help turn that around, along with some of the other products they announced at MWC and will announce later this year. We don’t know the price of this Bluetooth Keyboard, nor the price of the Xperia Z4 Tablet. But given Sony’s history, we aren’t expecting anything cheap. The Xperia Z2 Tablet was $499 last year when it launched. So I’d expect about the same for the Xperia Z4 Tablet. As far as the Bluetooth Keyboard goes, I’d expect around $100 or so. I do think that is part of the reason Sony Mobile is struggling, the pricing. If they sold the Xperia Z4 Tablet for $299 or even $349, I bet they’d sell a ton.

The Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet is a great looking tablet, as well as having all of the top-of-the-line specs. Including running Lollipop, which is almost a stock look right now from Sony. How many of you are interested in the Xperia Z4 Tablet? Let us know in the comments down below.
