According to recent rumours (DigiTimes), Sony seems to be working on a high-end 12” Xperia tablet that will become available in Q1 2015 (before the end of March). The tablet will feature a stylus, but aside from that, we don’t know any of its other specs.
The Xperia Z2 tablet is the biggest slate in Sony’s offer at this point – 10.1 inches – but it seems that the Japanese giant is planning on changing that. Up until this point, only a couple of electronics manufacturers have managed to release large tablets, and if Sony really puts out a 12” device, it will directly challenge Samsung’s 12.2” Galaxy Note Pro and Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3.
DigiTimes also claims that a other companies (not stated which ones) are also preparing larger tablets for 2015, including Apple, who is rumoured to be working on a 12.9” iPad Pro.
Until we have more details about this alleged 12” tablet or Sony confirms the rumours, you should take this piece of info with a grain of salt.
Would you buy an 12” Xperia tablet or do you prefer smaller slates?
