IFA 2014: Sony announces Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact

Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet CompactSony Mobile not only unveiled two new Xperia Z3 smartphones but the announcements continued with its latest tablet, the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact (quite the mouthful!). Billed as the “world’s slimmest and lightest waterproof compact tablet,” it is also the first tablet to come with PS4 Remote Play, a feature that will let users turn the tablet into a second screen and even a controller for PS4 games as well as purchase new games and download them directly to the PS4.

“Following on from the success of our award-winning Xperia Z2 Tablet, we’re continuing to expand our tablet portfolio with the launch of the no-compromise compact tablet. Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact pushes the boundaries of technology innovation by bringing our flagship Z3 series features in a compact size, continuing our new standard of offering premium experiences in a choice of form factor for consumers,” says Calum MacDougall, Director of Product Marketing Programme at Sony Mobile Communications.
