This must be a boon to all CyanogenMod fans out there, that even Sony’s upcoming Xperia Z2 tablet – launching on July 17 exclusive with Verizon – now have CM 11 experimental builds that will be available for all 5 variants of the device. This was announced via CyanogenMod’s Google Plus account yesterday.

Verizon customers will get to have exclusive access to Sony’s new quarter-inch thick tablet just a few days from now, and undoubtedly there will be some among those crowd who will want CM 11 on the device to get the most out of it. The Xperia Z2 tablet is apparently aimed at media geeks who will want that touted 10 hours of playback time that Sony has announced upon the tablet’s launch.

As with a host of other Sony Xperia devices, this one is water-resistant as well – but we do hope you do not go swimming with the newfangled tablet when you do get it. That will probably lay waste to the wonderful quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset that powers the tablet, and will utilize the high bandwith speeds of Verizon’s LTE network.

Those who are already familiar with CM 11 will understand how big a deal this is that the CyanogeMod team has put the device under its supported list. Custom ROMs just give you an edge when it comes to features and the sooner CM 11 is stable on the Sony Xperia Z2 tablet, the better it is for the users who want to take advantage of the CM 11 custom ROM.
