Tablets have not been super exciting here lately. I have pretty well stuck to the Nexus lineup for the past few years. I have owned the OG Nexus 7 followed by the Nexus 10 then the 2nd gen Nexus 7 followed by the Nexus 9. I have been pretty satisfied and have not had a good reason to look outside of the Nexus lineup. However Sony has announced a pretty sweet new tablet.
The Xperia Z4 Tablet is 6.1mm thin, which is the exact same thickness as the ipad air. The tablet also features some pretty impressive specs.
