While the latter comes in with a totally unproven track record, the slate in the images does appear to match that of the press render revealed by @evleaks, so we're inclined to give them a bit of credit.
In terms of looks, if these images turn out to be genuine, the Xperia Z2 Tablet doesn't appear to be a great deal different to the original Xperia Tablet Z.
It looks pretty bezel heavy all the way round the screen, although looking at the screen the tablet could well sport Android 4.4 KitKat as the wallpaper is viewable behind the notification and navigation bars.
Previous leaks suggest that the Xperia Z2 Tablet with the same 1920 x 1200, 10.1-inch screen of its predecessor, but will also feature Sony's Triluminos display technology for greater viewing angles.
It's also expected to pack a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSD slot, 6000mAh battery, 8MP rear camera and 2MP front facing snapper.
