Yesterday at MWC 2013 we went face to face with Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 8 slate and as if on cue, tablets and tablet-style smartphones cropped up in droves. On the latter, we have a new 5-inch, stylus-packing smartphone from LG and same-sized device from ASUS that docks into a 10-inch tablet. In the realm of full-fledged tablets, Sony evolved its design sense from thick slates with wedge form factors into the world’s thinnest Android tab. Follow along below.
The Tablet Z measures just 0.26 inches thick, making it the “world’s thinnest 10-inch tablet,” according to Sony. Considering the Toshiba Excite 10 LE was 0.3 inches thick, we’re splitting hairs here, but the design is still remarkably svelte--and it'll survive more than the occasion dip in the pool.
