Just 2 days ago, we reported the existence of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z that surfaced online with detailed specs. Now the tablet's name has cropped up on one of NTT DoCoMo's sites, indicating a January 22 release in Japan.
The Xperia blog has posted an image via Blog of Mobile that lists detailed information of DoCoMo's plans to host an exhibition where it is likely to showcase the Xperia Tablet Z amongst other devices as part of its Spring 2013 lineup, including the Xperia Z recently launched at CES. Visitors will be able to check out the devices at the 'docomo smart lounge' from January 23-27.
If these reports are to be believed in anyway, then we can expect to see the tablet make an official debut for other markets at the MWC scheduled for next month.
Previously rumoured specs for the tablet mention that the device is expected to feature a 10.1-inch full-HD (1920x1080) display running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. It is likely to come with an 8.1-megapixel rear and 2.2-megapixel front cameras.
Furthermore, the Xperia Tablet Z is likely to be powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core APQ8064 Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The device is rumoured to come with a 6,000mAh battery and support Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/, Bluetooth 4.0, NF and LTE as well.
Sony unveiled the Xperia Z smartphone at CES earlier this month that is likely to be available in three different colours. It might be possible that the Xperia Tablet Z also sees multiple colour variants.
