xperiaultrazSony already had the Xperia Z Ultra on the market and that is a 6.4-inch phablet, now it looks like the company is going to be taking that same design, minus the phone option and the broadband radio and turning it into a tablet.  Leaked information that has shown up online suggests that Sony is taking the modified Ultra Z and releasing it as a smaller than average tablet.  Many of the features and specs would stay the same in the tablet version, other than the fact that it will be Wi-Fi only.

Now there is a listing at the FCC that shows the Xperia Z Ultra as a Wi-Fi only option for the United States and according to the listing, the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.  The 6.4-inch touch screen display has a 1080p HD resolution and is teamed up with the 2GB of RAM to keep things moving smoothly in the streaming department.  The camera on the back side is an 8MP model and that comes with camera features that many have become used to with smartphones, like auto focus, HDR mode and touch to focus.

The tablet will come with 16GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot that will help you expand your storage if needed.  The bad side of the Xperia Z Ultra phablet is that you must buy it from Sony for use on AT&T and T-Mobile networks so there are very few options for you unless you want to pay full retail up front.  Now that the same specs are going to be offered in a Wi-Fi only tablet, you can experience the powerful processer of the Xperia Z Ultra without having to connect to a mobile network.

Removing things like the 3G and 4G antennas is an easy way for a mobile company to reduce cost in a new product and that makes it more widely available.  The display is larger than most smartphones only being ½ inch smaller than a 7-inch Nexus or Galaxy Tab tablet.  The Mobile World Congress event is coming up next month and that is likely to be where you will see the device showcased to the public for the first time.  With the same hardware specs and Android software, the smaller tablet would be the perfect device for those that want the powerful device in a different form factor.
