Sony has unveiled the thinnest tablet computer for the information and communication technology (ICT) market.

The Android-powered Xperia Z is 0.27 6.9mm-thick, which is 0.01 thinner than Apple's iPad Mini, despite featuring a bigger 10.1in screen.
BBC News reported that it coincided with news that LG  was releasing a 5inch handset, the Optimus G Pro, making it the latest to offer very thin handset.
Both devices have only been confirmed for release in Japan, but more details are expected next month.

It is expected that the new smart devices would be launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
Beyond being thin, Sony's new tablet can also lay claim to being the lightest for its size.

The firm said it weighed 495g, a fraction below the Toshiba
Excite 10 LE, which previously laid claim to the title.

LG's handset is being marketed as offering "full HD" video playback
In addition it is water and dust-resistant, featuring similar plastic covers to protect its ports as are found on the firm's Xperia Z smartphone, which was announced a fortnight ago at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
