It’s ridiculously thin, stupidly powerful, has an awesome battery and – to top it all – is waterproof. No, we’re not talking about adding a fourth member of the South African Navy’s fleet of submarines: we’re talking about the awesome Sony Xperia Z2 tablet which we’ve got in our hands right now to give away to one of you.

The Z2 is one of our favourite tablets on sale at the moment. It’s got a beautiful 10.1inch IPS display with a pin sharp resolution of 1 920×1 200 pixels, and is powered by Qualcom’s latest quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor. It flies, in other words, and makes Android feel as comprehensively powerful as a fully fledged desktop OS.

And yet when you look at it edgeways… let’s just say that at 6.4mm high we’ve held thicker pieces of paper. It’s elegant, feels nigh on indestructible thanks to IP55/58 certification for durability and was the worthy winner of our Editor’s Choice award when we reviewed it here.

Have we sold you on it yet? Do we need to mention the fact that it weighs a feathery 439g and runs the latest version of Android, 4.4? What about its media features, like screen mirroring for throwing the display wirelessly to another device or TV? Or the fact that it has an HD webcam on the front and a very capable 8.1MP one on the back?


All you really want to know is how you can get one, don’t you? In order to stand a chance of winning a Sony Xperia Z2 tablet, all you have to do is point your browser at the address and answer the following question before 5th September.
