From what we've seen of the Xperia Tablet Z, it is a skinny little wonder, if not exactly the best Android tablet out there. Where it is the best though, is size, and its guts are packed nice and tight into that svelte frame. Now, we are getting to see that construction thanks to a teardown by, oddly enough, Sony itself.

This is not, of course, an excellent source of unbiased information with that being the case, but the tablet looks pretty easy to disassemble. That said, you'll note the short little pop-up that doing so would void the warranty—and worse—doing so would almost definitely compromise the skinny little tab's water- and dust-proof qualities, one of its biggest selling points.

The tab is due on store shelves sometime mid-way through next month, and then we're bound to get another deep-dive into its innards, but for now this is the best autopsy out there. And so far, she looks good inside and out. [Sony]
