Sony’s new tablet is a sleek business device that stands out thanks to its lightweight design. The 10-inch tablet is even thinner and lighter than Apple’s iPad Air. And the Xperia Z2 Tablet has a lot more to offer, including a high-resolution display and long battery life, as well as handy multitasking features. Meanwhile, the slate's powerful processor offers up speedy performance and allows for smooth multitasking. You can't buy the Xperia Z2 Tablet just yet; it's set to hit store shelves on May 4, starting at $499 for the 16GB model. Here are three features that could make it worth waiting for.
Ten-inch tablets are good for business because they offer enough digital real estate for real productivity tasks, such as viewing and editing documents or spreadsheets on the go. But large tablets are heavier and more difficult to hold for extended periods of time compared to other mobile devices. That's where the Xperia Z2 Tablet really shines; it's the thinnest and lightest 10-inch tablet yet, weighing less than a pound and measuring just a quarter-inch thick. That's a big plus for business users looking for a slate that won't weigh them down on their daily commutes or business trips.
The Xperia Z2 Tablet supports a handy multitasking feature called Small Apps, which lets you run an app in a small, floating window alongside any other app. This functionality makes it easier to multitask on your tablet by allowing you to take notes, create a list, use the calculator or perform other tasks while checking email, for example. That's a plus for business users, since most tablets allow you to run just one app on screen at a time.
Losing a mobile device to water damage can be devastating, especially for business users who depend on their tablets to stay connected and productive when they're away from the office. That's why the Xperia Z2 Tablet's durable, waterproof design is such a boon for business users. The device is completely waterproof and dust proof, making it a durable tablet you can depend on.
