Xperia Tablet Z release pushed back to “middle of May” in Europe

XTZ_1Unfortunately it looks like those in Europe will have to wait a month longer to get hands on with the Sony Xperia Tablet Z. The official Sony website now cites a “middle of May” launch date, despite the fact that just days before, it was still expected in the middle of April.

However, when adding the tablet to the basket on the Sony Store website, it states that the expected delivery is 28 May to 29 May – doesn’t sound like the middle of May to us. Third party retailers such as Expansys and Clove are expecting stock from the week commencing 20 May. No reason has been given for the delay so it looks like we’ll just have to suck it up and wait.



Thanks Piran and Vignesh!

    My pre-order still shows expected delivery between April 12 and April 15. Hopefully they’ve just exhausted expected supply for the initial batch of pre-orders. I’ll cancel if I have to wait another month and re-evaluate whether to just get the new iPad instead.

    still no pre order here in france… what the fuck happends to mobile industry, not only Sony ? Each time something is supposed to go on sale they push it back for weeks ! When finally it’s available it’s only for few days and then you have to wait another few weeks. Damn are they amateurs or what ?

    Suprise suprise, Sony NEVER release a new product on time. Just shows how disorganised they are for such a big company to do it over and OVER and OVER again

    I’m glad mine is to arrive on April 13th!

    I wouldn’t be surprised though if people in Europe who ordered theirs from Sony earlier will get theirs on time but since they’ve run low on stock, future orders are delayed until new shipments come in JUST LIKE last year and the Nexus 7… and countless other products.

    Scheduled for release in April 2013

    Others have delays too. HTC One is coming much later than initially expected. Even
    Samsungs Galaxy S4 is coming crippled in the beginning. Until July 2013 it’s either
    with a Snapdragon 600+LTE or with an Exynos without LTE. And this is due to delays
    with implementing LTE in their new SoC.

    The other tablets aka the xperia tablet s was a fail the tablet s1 was a fail and the xperia tablet z will also be a fail, just known if you buy one you have been warned.

    Are you sure that it is not just that the initial batch of stock has sold out? Every day the delivery date has been slipping, it would be odd for them to have such precise, constant delivery dates for the tablet. It could be that ias more was pre-ordered the delivery date was pushed back so they could be processed?

    My preorder still “claims” to be on track for the 12th April (see pic) but won’t hold my breath after all my previous experience with Sony with the XTS!

    I’ve preordered the 32gb white Xperia Tablet Z. This is the best tablet on the market. Dust and waterproof so you can use in the bath. Also it got 4 speakers for true stereo sound and probably the best IR remote app!

  • Ashad Mamood

    I think your gonna have to eat your words because the Tablet Z is gonna be a huge success. Already many countries are showing the preorders is sold out!

  • Ashad Mamood

    Don’t forget this was voted Tablet of the show at MWC 2013. So I expect there to be big demand for it. That could be the cause?

  • Ashad Mamood

    Give the new CEO time. In about 12 months I think Sony will be sorted!

  • skimpychimpy

    Let’s hope so! It looks like an amazing beast but will be pretty gutted if they alter the delivery date by over a month!
