Default Is this the only tablet of it's kind?

Good day everyone,

I was shopping for a tablet when I came across this beauty. I'm looking for specific specs and this is the only one I found with such specs.

This is what I was looking for:

Snapdragon 800/ EXYNOS 5420
2GB/3GB RAM
1080P
10.1"

All I was able to find was 10.1 with 2560x1600 (or whatever it is). all 1080p res tablets were running last gen. Socs.

Reason I'm looking for no more than 1080p is because I believe it to be best performance quality ratio. 2500px rez is too much for current socs and they struggle to keep up with the res. When you do more than just Web browsing.

So far this Sony tablet is exactly what I'm looking for, does anyone know of any other models that provide those specs?

I was hoping for Samsung Galaxy line up, but so far either higher specs or lower resolution. So no go for me.

Thanks in advance,
Khar00f

Yes. Only one. And the S801 is pretty powerful to handle the higher resolution. The biggest problems would be battery... And this is a really awesome device. Go for it. Last gen Tab Z is really good. This must be way better

Yes, micro SD slot, up to 128 Gb (the new one from SanDisk) and a MHL-enabled MicroUSB port.

I just bought xperia z1 compact not too long ago and its an awesome device I am now looking to replace my old note tablet.

Does anyone know how 801 (not sure if its released yet) handles or will handle 10 bit 1080 vids (mainly anime)? my phone plays 720p 10bit flawlessly.

cheers
