Sony’s Rumored Xperia 12-inch Tablet to Rival Apple’s Elusive iPad Pro
12-inch tablets represent a nascent category, and consumers’s reaction hasn’t been really tested. That’s why recent rumors suggest Sony might be working on its own Xperia 12-inch tablet for release in early 2015.
Sony is currently selling the Xperia Tablet Z and Xperia Z2 Tablet and the new 8-inch Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. And, by the looks of it, the company is interested in releasing a 12-inch device, as well.
According to Taiwanese sources reported by DigiTimes, Sony is getting ready to launch a 12-inch tablet in the first quarter of 2015. Which, if recent reports are anything to go by, will coincide with the launch of the elusive iPad Pro.
The new 12-inch tablet should feature high-end specs, a stylus to make use of the increased display size. Most likely, this product is going to be targeting doctors, engineers, architects, painters and just about anybody in the need of a bigger display.
Q1 of 2015 coincides with the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, so that’s where we could spot it. We will be keeping an eye on more related news and will let you know once we get more information.
