Sony Mobile Communications ("Sony Mobile") today introduces Xperia™ Z3 Tablet Compact - a tablet that re-defines lightness, re-invents entertainment and re-imagines power. The culmination of years of Sony engineering have resulted in a tablet where might isn't held back by measurements.

The world's slimmest and lightest waterproof compact tablet[4], Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact delivers the highest level of waterproof design with attention to detail that makes the difference. Running with the most powerful processor in a compact tablet[3], it has the brightest and sharpest 8" Full HD display, as well as the latest audio technology. It's also the only tablet with PS4™ Remote Play[2], making serious mobile gaming a reality.

"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.

The world's slimmest and lightest compact tablet[1]

Impossibly slim, astonishingly light and exquisitely crafted - Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is a design sensation. At just 6.4mm slim, its compact design is perfect for those on the go, while advanced Sony technology ensures you don't have to compromise on power. Weighing just 270g, the ultra-portable tablet feels weightless in your hand.

Created using the highest quality materials, its clean lines and uniquely designed power button capture Sony's exquisite attention to detail. Stainless steel corners, an ultra slim rounded frame and a tempered glass front give an elegant and durable finish. Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is available in either white or black to ensure a classic finish.

Sony's passion for perfection takes the design of this compact tablet even further - adding market-leading waterproofing to beauty. The IP65/68 rating means you won't ever have to worry about water or dust getting in the way of performance. Take your tablet poolside, find your way in the rain, and keep scrolling through your recipe next to the kitchen sink. Wet conditions are no problem, and other compact tablets are officially blown out of the water.

Unrivalled entertainment with the world's only tablet with PS4™ Remote Play[2]

Sony has engineered a revolution in gaming technology with the addition of PS4™ Remote Play on the Xperia Z3 series. With PS4 Remote Play, exclusive to Xperia, you can now use your Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact as a remote screen to connect to and control your games on PS4. For those times when the TV is being used, simply connect your tablet to your PS4 via home Wi-Fi and use the DUALSHOCK®4 Wireless Controller with the GCM10 Game Control Mount to continue playing games anywhere at home on your Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.

Additionally the PlayStation®App lets you use your Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact as a second screen to remotely watch the game play of your game friends, communicate with PSN™ friends, purchase PS4 games and download to PS4, or simply to control your PS4.

Whether you're playing a game or watching a movie, your entertainment is enhanced with Sony's latest TV and audio technologies. Boasting Sony's brightest tablet display yet, this compact tablet has a visual brilliance beyond its size. Combined with Sony's TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile technology with Live Colour LED, X-Reality™ for mobile and intuitive contrast enhancement, this 8" Full HD display is sharp and vivid even in bright sunlight.

Tune in with an audio powerhouse  

The mobile music experience just got re-invented. Sony's rich audio expertise comes through in every beat with incredible High-Resolution Audio, so you can hear every track just as the artist intended when using Hi-Res headphones such as Sony's new MDR-1A range. For those tracks that aren't in hi-res quality, Sony's ground-breaking DSEE HX technology - available now for the first time in our Z3 series - 'upscales' the fidelity of your MP3 or AAC music collection as well as your playlists on Sony's cloud-based digital music service, Music Unlimited[5], to near High-Resolution Audio quality.

To enjoy your favourite music without interruption, the Xperia Z3 series brings Sony's Digital Noise Cancelling technology to the tablet. Ambient noise is reduced by up to 98% when paired with the MDR-NC31EM Digital Noise Cancelling headset - perfect for that busy commute or tuning out the background in a noisy office.

Best-in-class speed and stamina  

Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact brings you all the best in Sony entertainment, backed up by the latest advancements in performance and speed. Featuring the world's fastest processor in a compact tablet[3], thanks to the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 801 Quad-core 2.5 GHz processor[6] with 3GB RAM, ensuring entertainment comes at a breakneck pace. Every interaction is fluid, browsing is lightning-quick and multi-tasking is effortless. The asynchronous processor makes sure each core is powered independently which means you get the precise amount of power when you need it, without wasting power when you don't.

As the world's only tablet with PS4™ Remote Play[2], Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is kitted out with the speed-enhanced, fully integrated Qualcomm® Adreno™ 330 GPU, delivering up to 25% performance improvement over its previous generation for the ultimate graphic performance that is incredibly fast and realistic, ensuring you're more absorbed than ever in your game.

This compact beauty has been engineered to keep going even when you're on the go with 13 hours of high quality video playback. Get even more from your battery with Sony's Battery STAMINA Mode, which turns off background functions when you're not using them to help extend your battery life, so your game won't quit before you're ready and your movie marathon can run the distance.

With Exmor RS™ for mobile you can capture stunning images even in low light conditions and the 2.2MP front-facing HD chat camera is ideal for video calls with family and friends.
