Sony has unveiled what it claims to be the world’s thinnest tablet, just, the 0.27 inch thick Xperia Z which is a full 0.01in thinner than its nearest rival the iPad Mini - despite sporting a full-size 10.1in screen thus also making it the lightest for its size.

Weighing just 495g the slender tablet is said to be both water and dust resistant with plastic covers to protect its ports.

Slated for release in Japan initially the device coincides with the release of the Optimus G Pro, the latest so-called ‘phablet’ to hit the market offering full HD playback. A new 8in version of Samsung’s Galaxy Note tablet.

Both Sony's tablet and phone Xperia Z devices are designed to be fully compatible allowing photos and other data to be shared using ‘one touch sharing’ thanks to a built in NFC chip.

The gadgets will be showcased at the Mobile World Congress from 25-28 February.
