Sony Xperia Z Ultra WiFi-only tablet now official in Japan

Sony Japan has just made official the WiFi-only tablet version of its popular large-screened smartphone, the Xperia Z Ultra.

With a 6.4-inch display, the original Xperia Z Ultra is already a tablet on its own. Sony Japan didn’t settle with that though and removed its phone functionality and left the WiFi connectivity intact. The result is a WiFi-only Xperia Z Ultra device bearing the model number SGP412JP. A rough translation of the Japanese webpage calls it the Xperia Georgette Ultra.

Specs remain the same as the original Ultra – 6.4-inch full HD display, 6.5mm thin IP58-certified body, 8 megapixel rear camera, 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, and 2GB of RAM.

The Xperia Z Ultra SGP412JP tablet will be available in Japan on the 24th with a price tag of ¥52,000 or around Php22,000.

    ooohhh, still pricey :/ I hope that when it gets worldwide release, online stores will sell it for less than 20k

    This is probably SONY’s answer to SAMSUNG’s TabPro line lol

    What a sad product, the stylus barely works. Bad battery, bad screen…. No wonder its premium price dipped dramatically sa mga online stores over the past few months…cuz nobody actually wants it.

      Masipag lang magresearch yung tao. Alam mo naman ang dali nang maging magmukhang matalino ngayon through researching and kakapanood ng hands on and unboxing videos sa net.

      Hahaha! Abu my man, I don’t find your comments offensive or anything. I find it hilarious and entertaining! I think I’m becoming a fan B!

    Google Nexus 7 2013 is still the best 7inch tablet for me.

    I own the xperia z ultra white bought from widget city.

    Here are some comments.
    PROs.
    – good size (used an iphone 4, note 3 and htc one) so far, happy with the size.
    – hard to use slide keyboard even when I’m using the Keymonk (use the same app for the note, it worked perfectly fine)
    – screen sennsitivity (even if there’s a dust or anything at that, the screen pressed by itself – not sure if this has something to do with the sensitivity).
    – Battery – Soso. Carrying with me two portable batteries. I’m in sales so I need to be on the go-always.

    CONs.
    – awful awful earpiece. – I need to use a jawbone Bluetooth headset to have a clear conversation.
    – small icons for its size (but you’ll get used to it).
    – photography (awful camera with no flash).
    – pen style? What pen stylus? I can’t even use a pencil for this. It does not work well (comparing it to the note series)
    – speakers? It sucks. Can’t watch anything without an earphone.

    Conclusion?
    Will I still buy this? Yes. I am not a photography-phone junkie. will I buy if it improves the cons? Yes. But should be cheaper.

    Disregard the pros and cons
