Sony releases an Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact infographic full of interesting facts

Expected to start shipping in the US in early November (meaning really soon), the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is definitely a device that can turn heads, being the world’s slimmest and lightest 8-inch tablet (213.4 x 123.6 x 6.4 mm, 270 grams). To remind us of the slate’s attributes - including its water-resistant, IP68-certified body - Sony this week posted an Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact infographic.
Did you know that the Z3 Tablet Compact is thinner than a chocolate chip cookie, and weighs less than a hamster? Well, now you do. You’ll find more interesting facts about the device in the slideshow below.
Running Android 4.4 KitKat (upgradeable to Android 5.0 Lollipop starting early next year), the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact features an 8-inch IPS display with 1200 x 1920 pixels, 2.2 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, quad-core 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, microSD card slot, and a 4500 mAh battery.
As a reminder, the 32 GB Wi-Fi-only version of the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact costs $499.99. This is the one that will start shipping next month, with an LTE variant supposedly coming sometime later.

Would be one of the best tablets ever if it wasn't for the outdated Xperia UI...

Outdated? Its as close to vanilla android you can get! Much better than most other manufacturers - especially Samsung's touchwiz

You have to consider the availability of the Nexus 9. Not all countries can get the Nexus 9. AND if they do, it will be as expensive as any other tablet. And knowing Sony, it will be priced cheaper in Asia than other markets. Typical Sony if you ask me.

Thats 100% true. In my country nexus devices aren't sold officially neither does google play ship to it. When nexus 5 came out it was 100eur cheaper than an S4/ONE M7 and very limited stock. While officially in UK it was like 250eur cheaper than the S4/M7.

Hahaha somehow i feel that after the few initial glitches of the Nexus 6 launch it'll be available in more countries and at a more standardised price when compared to Nexus 5. Google was making peanuts on Nexus 4 and 5 but this time around and like the Galaxy Nexus before; they have the 6 correctly priced (for comparison the Note 4 is around $200 costlier) and I have high hopes that this one will have a decent 7-8 hours screen on time. Plus they will pocket more money so a higher initiative for both Motorola and Google to sell as much as they can...
