The recently announced tablet by Sony, the Xperia Z2 Tablet, is now available for pre-order a number of Sony’s regional websites. When the company first announced the Xperia Z2 Tablet at MWC 2014, it hadn’t revealed pricing, only a March 2014 global release.
The Sony UK website put up for pre-order the Xperia Z2 Tablet’s LTE 16GB version, Wi-Fi only 16GB version and Wi-Fi only 32GB version for GBP 499 (Rs. 51,000 approximately), GBP 399 (Rs. 41,000 approximately) and GBP 449 (Rs. 46,000 approximately) respectively. No availability has been detailed.
In Germany, the Xperia Z2 Tablet starts at EUR 650 (Rs. 55,000 approximately). The Z2 Tablet is also said to start with EUR 630 (Rs. 53,000 approximately) in France and the Netherlands, EUR 670 (Rs. 57,000 approximately) in Sweden, EUR 700 (Rs. 59,000 approximately) in Spain, and PLN 2899 (Rs. 59,000 approximately) in Poland.
