Back in March, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Sony announced the Xperia Z4 Tablet. Which is their newest flagship tablet. It has a Snapdragon 810 and is running on Lollipop. It's a pretty nice tablet, we got hands on time with it at Sony's booth in Barcelona and was quite impressed with it. Especially with it being our first chance to see Sony's implementation of Lollipop.
The Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet has been delayed numerous times and we're not even sure if it's coming to the US. But the WiFi model is now showing up in stock or pre-order status in a number of countries in Europe. It's showing up as "in stock" for Germany, Poland, Italy, and Sweden. It's available as "pre-order" in France, Spain, and the United Kingdom. While the Netherlands are getting a "Not available" status. No word on other regions just yet.
As far as the LTE model goes, it's in pre-order status for every country listed above. Except for France and the United Kingdom. Expansys USA actually has the Xperia Z4 Tablet LTE up for pre-order right now. It'll cost you about $699 though, here in the US. So far that appears to be the only place where you can buy one though. It should appear in the Sony store soon as well as other retailers like Amazon and Best Buy.
It's currently looking like the WiFi model is slated to be available on June 17th, or on June 29th, Depending on the country and if you're getting the LTE or WiFi model. We'll be sure to follow this a bit more closely to let everyone know when the tablet will be available. Considering it was announced 3 months ago, it's about time we get it in our hands.
At this point, there's not many tablets out there that run Android and are worth picking up. However, the Xperia Z4 Tablet is definitely a great tablet, however, most people aren't going to want to pay that much for an Android tablet, sadly. Hopefully we see some more Android tablets coming out later this year that will help grow the shrinking tablet market.
