Its the lightest, thinnest & most water-resistant tablet in the world. 

First announced at CES in January, Sony's Xperia Tablet Z, which starts at $539 is now on sale in Australia through Sony online and electronics stores nationwide. 

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and comes in three options: 16GB WiFi ($539), 32GB WiFi ($649), 16GB with 4G/LTE ($679), available in black or white. 

Xperia Tablet Z has a 10.1" HD WUXGA Display, powered by Sony's Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, for "brilliant TV-like viewing"  and quad core 1.5GHz processor, NFC and dual cameras.
