Once you take a look at above numbers you will figure out that this is the thinnest and lightest 10 inch Android tablet ever. It comes with same dust and water resistant body same as Xperia Z Smartphone.

For a tablet a rear facing camera is not really essential. But this comes with a high end camera same as most Smartphone.
