Sony's new tablet is sliced thinner than the iPad Mini

Sony's new tablet is sliced thinner than the iPad Mini | Floqr Mobile News | Scoop.it

Sony's new tablet is really thin. How thin? Thinner than the already-very-svelte iPad Mini.


The 10.1-inch Xperia Tablet Z measures 6.9mm or about 0.27 inches. The uber-thin Mini is 7.2mm and 0.28 inches, by comparison.
Thinness is important in tablets because it translates to very light, easy-to-hold designs. And here Sony delivers too: it weighs in at 485 grams or just over one pound.


That also beats the 10-inch class competition: Apple's iPad 4 is 1.44 pounds.

Apple maintains 70% grip on China’s tablet market, as industry sales jump 63% year-on-year

Apple maintains 70% grip on China’s tablet market, as industry sales jump 63% year-on-year | Floqr Mobile News | Scoop.it

Android may rule the roost when it comes to smartphones in China, but Apple is still dominant when it comes to tablets, according to an Analysys International report, which pegs the US firm at 71 percent of sales in Q3 2012, far ahead of second placed Lenovo on 10 percent.

The Google-owned operating system accounts for more than 90 percent of smartphones, streets ahead of iOS’s 4.2 percent. While the analyst firm doesn’t total the figures for operating systems, it is clear that Android’s grip on China’s tablet space — which saw industry-wide sales grow 62.5 percent on a year previous – is nothing like as strong.
