So yesterday we talked about Sony’s Xperia Z3. Alongside the flagship smartphone they too released a compact 8-inches tablet called Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. It claims to be the thinnest and lightest 8-inches tablet currently on the market at 6.4mm thickness and 270g of weight on it. Like the smartphone sibling this tablet is also designed to be waterproof at IP68 certification. Specs wise it is really no surprise as all the internals are similar to that of the smartphone. It has a Snapdragon 801 form Qualcomm clocked at 2.4GHz, paired with 3GB of RAM and the Adreno 330 to handle all processing within the device. There is really not much talks about the battery size or life but it has something called the STAMINA mode to make the battery last longer, presumably like Samsung’s Galaxy S5 battery saving mode. It will sport the Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixels LED display which would guarantee bright and pretty colours on images. The only noticeable difference other than screen size is the back facing camera; while the smartphone gets over 20 Megapixels the tablet only manages 8.1MP. Though it is not actually a bad thing as snapping your photos using a tablet is not particularly a good idea for a start.
