Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact

Sony’s consumer electronics division is in an ongoing state of flux.

Having already given up on PCs and e-readers, the company recently pledged to make fewer TVs and smartphones in a bid to get its books back in the black.

How Sony’s strategizing will affect its output of tablets remains unclear, but no doubt a keen eye is being kept on the reception of its latest slate, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact (don’t let that mouthful of a moniker fool you — Sony only classes the 8-inch tablet as “compact” to differentiate it from its two previous 10.1-inch devices).

The company is renowned for the quality of its premium products, and like the two smartphones that make up the rest of the Z3 family, its newest tablet is a testament to that legacy.

Cutting to the chase, it’s an elegant and powerful device, but with prices starting in the USA at near $1000, those credentials might not be enough to make you choose Sony over the competition.
