Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact Overview
With its 8-inch 1920x1200 display the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is a smaller alternative to the 10-inch Z2 Tablet. At 6.4mm thick and 270 grams the new model is also pleasantly slim and lightweight which should make for excellent portability.
Like all Z-series models the Z3 Tablet Compact is water- and dust proof (IP65/68) and features an aluminum frame with glass panels. However, the edges are a little more rounded than on previous models. For a tablet, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact comes with a pretty capable rear camera. The 8.1MP unit offers 1080p video recording with digital stabilization, a range of shooting modes and an 8x digital zoom. For video chats and self-portraits there is also a 2.2MP front camera.
Under the hood the tablet uses very similar components to its Xperia Z3 smartphone siblings. Android 4.4 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2.5 GHz quad-core CPU and 3GB of RAM. 16GB internal storage can be expanded via a microSD slot.
