At first glance, the Android-powered Sony Xperia Z seems similar to most tablets on the Best Buy shelf. Look again: The sprightly full-HD tablet has a glasslike frame crafted from polymer-infused fiberglass sheets, which not only give it a near bezel-free screen for a seamless viewing experience but also make the entire system waterproof down to 3 feet for 30 minutes. Time to hit the pool. [From $500; sony.com]
