Sony once again accidentally drops the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact name

Sony once again accidentally drops the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact name
A couple of days ago, Sony inadvertently showed a photograph of someone lounging around a pool with the unannounced Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. On this gentleman's wrist was a mysterious Sony smartwatch. What made the picture stand out, was that it was somehow published amongst promo pictures of the Sony Smart Band.

Just a few days before the above incident, a user guide for the Sony BSC10, which is a Bluetooth speaker with a charging dock, mentioned that this product is compatible with the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Just what is going on at Sony?

Today, a specs page for the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet, accidentally listed the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, when the copy was supposed to have mentioned the Xperia Z2 Tablet. Someone at Sony obviously has the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact on his mind. The other day, we learned about some of the specs for the slate, via a leak. This is a device with an 8 inch TRILUMINOS screen offering resolution of 1920 x 1080. A quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801MSM8974AC is driving the slab, which includes 3GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. An 8MP snapper is on back and the whole shebang is powered by a 4500mAh to 5000mAh battery.

Sony has since corrected the blooper, which makes us wonder where the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact name will show up next. The tablet itself should be unveiled at IFA 2014 in Berlin, which starts on September 5th. The Sony Xperia Z3 and Sony Xperia Z3 Compact are both also expected to see the light of day at IFA.

Thanks for the tip!

It is not accidentally leaked by the manufacturer, they intent so that people will talk to them. The only good for Sony tablet is the Water and Dust resistant. Only Apple iPad is the best tablet in the market.

Really ipad? It's just an oversized iPod touch last time I check. It's really hard to understand what your trying to say and if your such an ifruit lover then as they say don't go trolling to other article.

Would be nice if they used QHD for the larger-sized one...

I wonder why Sony doesn't adapt their OLED tech to a tablet. Might be very compelling, especially if they make it work well as a "secondary display" for a television/cable/streaming box.
