Sony introduced the Xperia Z2 tablet earlier today in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress. Advertised as "the world’s slimmest and lightest waterproof tablet," this slate has a lot in common with the Xperia Z2 smartphone, as both feature Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 801 chip.

These are the main specs of the Sony Xperia Z2 Android KitKat tablet:

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
