Sony has put an end to another series of rumors. These latest were tablet related, specifically, for the Xperia Tablet Z which has been announced for just one market as of this time. We should also point out that while Sony has officially announced the Xperia Tablet Z, this feels more like it is a soft launch and that we should expect some additional details moving forward.

To begin with, as of now the Xperia Tablet Z is heading to just one market -- Japan. Of course, that is not to say we will not see any additional details in the future, especially with Mobile World Congress coming up next month. And if nothing else, we expect that Sony will have the Xperia Tablet Z on full display during the show.

That all being said, lets dive in with some of the specs that have been mentioned. The Xperia Tablet Z will arrive sporting a 10.1-inch (1920 x 1200) display with the Mobile Bravia Engine, quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm APQ8064 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space. Other specs include a microSD card slot, 8.1 megapixel rear-facing camera, NFC and LTE connectivity.

Otherwise, as we had seen based on the rumors, the Xperia Tablet Z is indeed waterproof and dustproof. Another rumor prove accurate, the tablet is thin -- 6.9mm. The other bit we can pass on is the colors, as you can see in the above images, the tablet will be available in black and white. Finally, Sony has yet to announce anything in terms of a specific release date or a price.

    This may be the first tablet to have it all, we just need a few more pieces to the puzzle… battery life should be >7 hours, sd card slot a must, 32gb of internal storage is ok (it better not drop). The 2 gb of RAM better be DDR3 vs. DDR2 (if they go cheap, then shame on them). One more nitpick, lets put the charge port on the side and not the bottom of the device (I hate that).
