No-one could accuse Sony of a lack of commitment when it comes to the smart devices market. Last week, in Dubai, it launched three new smartphones, a tablet and a wearable, while at the same time promising a six-month upgrade cycle for new devices.

"We want to deliver the latest technology to our customers," said a Sony representative at the launch event. And there's no doubting that the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet constitutes the very latest in tablet technology.

At the heart of this 10.1-inch device is Qualcomm's latest processor, the Snapdragon 801, which features 2.3 GHz quad-core Krait CPUs. The device offers up 3 GB of RAM - more than any other product in this category - and the GPU is Adreno's latest unit for tablets, the 330.

Add all this to the fact that the Z2 Tablet is waterproof, shockproof and dustproof, and you have what is perhaps the most compelling 10.1-inch Android tablet on the market today. And, in white, it doesn't look half-bad, either.

In terms of practicality, the power plant ensures smooth running of just about any app you can throw at the Z2. A lot of tablets suffer when users forget to close down apps that they haven't used for a while, but the Z2 shows no signs of slowing even when it's fully loaded with open apps. Power-hungry games are delivered with no issues at all, and switching between apps is just as easy as on a fast PC. As of February, the Z2 Tablet was the fastest Android tablet on the market, and it shows. This device can really perform.
