Sony has just announced that its upcoming Xperia Tablet Z – touted as being the slimmest, lightweight and water-resistant tablet – is now available for preorder in Australia via the Sony Store online and through retailers nationwide.

The Xperia Tablet Z features a 10.1-inch WUXGA display powered with its Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 to provide TV-like viewing experiences on the tablet; and a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM. It runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and comes in two modes – 16GB and 32GB. The 32GB model only comes with Wi-Fi, while the 16GB can come with LTE or Wi-Fi only.

It is also water and dust resistant, being able to survive being submerged in 1 metre of water for around 30 minutes.

The tablet doesn’t come out until June 6 with a RRP price of $539 (for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model).
