Sony's slinky Xperia Tablet Z to launch in Japan next week?
News On Japan via techradar.com -- Jan 18
A Japanese network let slip some more details about the rumoured Sony Xperia Tablet Z, including the fact that it will launch in Japan on January 22.
Although DoCoMo hastily took the offending info down, it didn't escape the notice of Android Authority who grabbed and translated the data.
DoCoMo's site also revealed that it would be showcasing the tablet in-store until January 27; it's not clear if that means it will be a DoCoMo exclusive or if the wider release date will be January 27 or if the tablet will make it out of Japan anytime soon.
