To find out how its top notching hardware gets packed in such a slim profile, Sony has released its official tear down of the Xperia Tablet Z. Of course, dissecting the tablet would automatically void its warranty, so don’t try this at home (if you have one, that is, which is highly unlikely for people living in India)!
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z was announced back in January, and has gone on sale in Japan today, it will also [...]
