Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Rumors
Within the past week, Sony Xperia Z3 tablet rumors have surfaced in what appears to be a leak from Sony in the UK. The leak, which was spotted in the users manual of Sony’s bluetooth speaker and charging dock, refers to the Z3 tablet.
This has sparked rumors that the Sony Xperia Z3 smartphone might not be the only thing unveiled at Sony’s infamous IFA press conference on 3rd September. As all Sony fans are aware, the Sony Z2 tablet was released with a RRP of £399. This price was competitive with Apple’s 16BG iPad Air. Could it now be that the Z3 tablet will be released to compete with Apple’s iPad Mini, could this provide an indication of the price of the Sony Xperia Z3 tablet? Or will Sony be competing with other tablet giants?
Well, if the Sony Xperia Z3 tablet will be competing with the Applie iPad mini, we could be looking at a RRP of between £300 – £330. With the Apple iPad Mini boasting a price of around £319 for a base model, it is our assumption that Sony will go in lower than that – making the price roughly around the £300 mark. However, this is yet to be confirmed and Sony may confirm the existence of the Sony Xperia Z3 tablet and indeed release specifications and potential prices at the IFA press conference in September.
So, what are our thoughts on the features of the Sony Xperia Z3? Well, it is assumed that the Sony Xperia Z3 tablet will feature an IPS panel display featured on an 8 inch touch screen. As with the Sony Xperia Z2 tablet, the device should feature 16GB+ of storage with the addition of an SD card slot for further storage if required. As with other devices, it is anticipated that the Sony Xperia Z3 tablet will be waterproof, however, will not feature retina display as other future tablets may do.
So, will the Sony Xperia Z3 tablet compete with the Nexus 7 as the most popular, affordable tablet or will it be a complete flop? What are your thoughts on the Sony Xperia Z3 tablet rumors, fact or fiction? Let us know your thoughts below!
