Sony is working on a smaller-sized Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact?
posted by Chris P. / Aug 18, 2014, 4:01 AM
Techtastic have unearthed a small detail that suggests that a previously-unheard of Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is in the works. The clue is found in the user guide for the Sony BSC10 -- a Bluetooth speaker with a charging dock -- where Sony has listed compatible devices, among which, we confirmed, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.The folks behind
Obviously, at this point in time, specifics about this new slate are non-existent, though we imagine that Sony will go for a screen size no larger than 8 inches. If the only other reference point for Sony's Compact line -- the Xperia Z1 Compact smartphone -- is any indication, then we'd also guesstimate that the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact will be a high-end device, but likely a bit less-packed with hardware when compared to, say, a new 10.1-inch Xperia Z3 Tablet.
More as we get it.

8-8.5" is ideal for me, as long as the side bezels (when held in portrait) are minimal. I happen to think my LG G Pad 8.3 is perfectly sized; big enough screen for comfortable viewing, small enough to hold in one hand. I honestly see no reason (yet) to replace my 8.3 with anything, despite its slightly aged specs, but an 8-9" Xperia Z tablet is definitely intriguing. If it's anything like the previous Z tablets, it'll be light, very thin, and waterproof. Who wouldn't want that?

i don't hate the bezel on my z2 smartphone in fact they come really useful when you are the phone in landscape orientation especially with the front stereo speakers but for me the bezel on the z2 tablet are just too much and they should reduce it by 50% at least and BTW if they launch the z3 tablet compact i will the first one to get it
