At the moment, Sony is offering only the white, 32 GB Wi-Fi version of the Z3 Tablet Compact, asking $499.99 for it. An LTE version will likely be released later this year.
Running Android 4.4 KitKat, the new slate sports an 8-inch IPS display with 1200 x 1920 pixels, and has the highest water-resistance rating on any consumer tablet (IP65/68). Other features include NFC, a 2.1 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, quad-core 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, microSD card support, and a 4500 mAh battery. At 6.4 mm and 270 grams, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is the world’s thinnest and lightest 8-inch tablet. That being said, are you looking forward to getting one?

iPad Mini 2 is $299. I fail to see how this is cheaper or a better deal.

Really like how Sony is improving their phones and tablets, but the price makes the Nexus 9 look like a bargain. Sony does have water resistance, but Sony really does need a wider market demographic than "tablet users who want to watch triluminous porn in the pool/hot tub".

Here in holland i paid 479€ for the 16gb 4g version. It shouldnge released on the 4th or 5th of November. I think that is a reasonable price. Especially as im going to use it as my phone with the remote brh10 if im correct. That 1 costs 79€ wich is pretty high if you ask me but am getting a free case of sony so for 558€ i have it complete so no complaints here

I'm beginning to wonder if the folks who run Sony are brain damaged. "Hey, let's launch a flagship every 6 months, but only make it available in certain places. While we are at it, let's launch our new tablet when the iPad is being launched. Oh, and let's price everything as if we are the market leader who can dictate price. We'll be rolling in the Yen in no time, boys."

Wow I can't believe some of the users are missing the point here. Nexus 9 has a big problem. It has no SD card slot and unless you can't add space in a tablet it's a big no no for me. This tablet is waterproof, supports SIM card so it serves dual purpose. If you are shelving out 700 dollars for a phone and 300 dollars for a tablet you end up shelving up to 1000 dollars for both. This can serve both and be had for 500 dollars so I understand how some might be tempted by dual function. Before you label me a Sony fanboy , let me tell you I own a Xperia Z2 and I won't be buying this tablet because it's too expensive as tablet alone. But if I didn't have a phone and wanted phone+tablet I probably would have got this instead of the Xperia Z2. I won't probably buy the nexus 9 either because despite being cheaper it kills off SD card support which is a major no for me downloading lots of movies and music on my tablet. I'll stick to my Surface for now, which serves as a tablet and small PC because it has USB plus MicroSD support even though I think Microsoft Tablet is the worst investment ever for anyone. But please don't twist facts to say this is just a tablet only. It can work as phone for people who don't have to buy two separate stand-alone devices.
