Sony’s Waterproof Tablet Makes a Splash

Once on the cutting edge of consumer electronics, Sony (6758) lost its mojo years ago. But every so often, it still comes up with something that reminds you of what it was, and maybe could be again.

Meet the new Xperia Tablet Z, the sleekest Android tablet ever. It’s ultra-thin, ultra-light, and it’s even waterproof.
