Update: Sony says ‘there is no specific Canadian timing or availability’ for the Z2 Tablet

Sony officially announced the Xperia Z2 Tablet at Mobile World Congress last week. This is a follow-up to the Xperia tablet Z that launched last year and sports a 10.1-inch display 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera with an Exmor RS sensor, 6000mAh battery, running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. A key seller for Sony is not only to highlight the display (1920×1200 resolution) but also that it’s incredibly thin (6.4mm), light (426 grams) and waterproof.

According to the release the Z2 Tablet was on tap for a global availability later this month, but specifics on this Wi-Fi only tablet hitting Canadian retail stores was scarce. However, Future SHop confirmed on Twitter yesterday that the Z2 Tablet “launches next month.” No word yet on a definitive date or pricing.

Update: Apparently Future Shop jumped the gun on this one and have removed the Tweet. Here’s an official statement from Sony Canada:

“A Canadian retailer issued a tweet yesterday regarding the Canadian availability of the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. The information was incorrect and has been removed. There is no specific Canadian timing or availability information confirmed for the Xperia Z2 Tablet at this time. We will provide this information to fans when it is confirmed through social media channels on Facebook and Twitter as well as via news release. Sorry for the misunderstanding.”
