I pre-ordered on clove.

I really don't need it but I want it so bad.

I'm looking as well for release of all the accessories - the speaker dock (BSC10), the keyboard (BKC10), the Z Ultra stylus (ES22), the bluetooth remote w/ call handling (BRH10) and maybe the cover too (SCR12). Though not the keyboard that is integrated with the tablet cover, just the keyboard with it's own cover - for future proofing.

If I didn't already have a Nikon DSLR I'd have got the QX100 too. And, if my pockets feel deep enough over the next year I'll pick up the stereo mic.

Anyone want to buy a kidney? I know a guy who's got going, thirty years of age, doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, exercises, needs cash for a stack of electronics.

It's not difficult to see why this is such a desirable tablet.

Waterproof, dust proof, four front facing speakers, built in digital noise cancellation, two HD 1080p cams, the slimmest, lightest 10 slate, PS certified, it can take calls, fantastic screen, etc etc.

@Ricky D
Remember that kid from China who did exactly that, so that he could buy the iPhone and iPad which was the must have thing? (was it fist gen or 2nd?)
I can kind of imagine that he might be regretting this action, but i would love to hear it from his own mouth as to what he thinks of it now....

He did deeply regret the situation. Mainly because of the complications from the botched operation and the reaction when his mum found out. Can't find the follow-up interview. It was an iPhone 4S I think + a macbook.

There were girls were prepared to sell their virginity for the iPhone 4S too in China.

Since then though Apple has lost a bit of rep in China and the Chinese consumer realised that Note is bigger and, therefore, better.

Another unboxing...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrFFr_Q52PU&feature=youtu.be

It's in Arabic, but he didn't mention anything new...

He mentioned that this is the retail version...

And also he will do a walkthrough video soon...

Is there any video (or maybe even an image) that shows the notification LED location, and it turned on? I'm curious about the location. As far as I read, it is near the front facing camera, but there is no way to see it when it isn't on...

The speakers are in the bottom corners and they are slit type speaks similar to the handset.



Only two of them which means it is quite easily to cover them both at the same time, unlike the original Tab Z.

Some reports are saying that this tablet has four speakers and others two. Can anyone confirm which?

That came from Sony Mobile's website during MWC. Now:

"Sony’s new S-Force® Front surround audio technology gives you a powerful surround sound effect without the need for multiple stand-alone speakers. For maximum effect, this gaming tablet has two surround sound speakers. And the speakers are carefully placed so that your hands don’t block the sound when holding your tablet."

Another review, from Digital Versus. Reasonably comprehensive:

http://www.digitalversus.com/[....]ria-z2-tablet-p19609/test.html

"This one is about as perfect a tablet as you're going to find."

We can probably agree that's a pretty unequivocal conclusion. No complaints either about the battery, despite it remaining the same capacity. DV claimed over 11 hrs of standard use, and 13 hrs after adjusting the settings.

Pros:
Gorgeous display
Top-notch design & finish
Super lightweight
Waterproof body (even with no cover for the audio jack)
Overall responsiveness
Battery life (Stamina Mode even better on Sony's tablets than on its smartphones)
Front camera has ideal quality for video chats

Cons:
Thinner bezel, please
Video Unlimited still has no HD content to view on the over-Full HD screen
Micro-lags when you launch certain games (but everything runs smoothly after that)

According to Three UK, the Xperia Tablet Z was the best performing tablet for the network after the iPad Air and the first Android tab they've been able to sell in some volume.

Oh, you guys think the Tablet Z2 is costing too much in your country? Do you REALLY think 400 pounds is too much (for the 16 Gb, WiFi only version)? What about 939 pounds/1549 dollars for the Brazilian one?
