The company revealed that online pre-orders for the Xperia Tablet Z are open from today, with the device available through "leading retailers" from Thursday 6 June.

Sony will sell the Xperia Tablet Z in Australia in three variants, a Wi-Fi-only model in 16GB and 32GB storage capacities and a 4G model with 16GB of storage. These variants of the device will retail for $539, $649 and $679, respectively. The tablet is available in both black and white models.

Announced globally back in February at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in Barcelona, Spain, the Sony Xperia Tablet Z is a 10.1in Android tablet. The device is just 6.9mm thick, making it thinner than the Apple iPad mini and the thinnest 10in tablet on the market. It follows a similar design ethos to the Xperia Z smartphone.

Sony Australia's marketing manager, Jun Yoon, said the "Xperia Tablet Z has received an incredibly positive response since it was first announced at MWC."

According to Sony, the Xperia Tablet Z can be submerged in up to one metre of water for 30mins.The device weighs just 495g and has an LED-backlit LCD with a resolution of 1920x1200, giving it a pixel density of 224ppi.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core 1.5GHZ processor and 2GB of RAM. There's also a microSD card slot to expand that memory, which will be welcome news to Android fans.

Other features include an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera that includes a backside-illuminated sensor that aims to capture better low light images, a front-facing 2.2-megapixel camera for video calls and a non-removable 6000mAh battery which claims up to eight hours of Wi-Fi web browsing.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
