'World's Lightest' Tablet 'Z' Hits Oz

By Oonagh Reidy | Wednesday | 12/06/2013

Its the light & most water-resistant tablet in the world.

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. 

It has the highest levels of water and dust resistance (IP55 & IP57) ever in a tablet and can be kept under one metre of freshwater for up to 30 minutes, so handy for use in outdoor, mining or building industries.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
