It supports up to 4G LTE cellular standard network and all other wireless data connectivity technologies are also included like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.
For an Android lover, here comes the best part. Xperia Z2 Tablet runs on latest Android KitKat 4.4 OS (with Sony’s skin on it) which is the best, buttery smooth and fastest OS till now.
