Rogers: Now Available the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact LTE

January 8, 2015 - Written By Cory McNutt

We reported last month that Sony of Canada announced that their Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact with LTE (really, who names these things) would arrive later that month “just in time for the holidays.”  We are not sure which “holiday” they are referring, but arrive it has and Rogers is selling this sleek little tablet for $549.99 on select monthly plans.  The Xperia Z3 Tablet (for short) was first announced in September 2014, but as we all know, Sony generally takes a while to get their devices to the public.  It just would have been better timing…resulting in more sales…if they could have gotten the tablet on a carrier before Christmas and not two weeks after the major shopping event is over.  At any rate, we welcome it on Rogers’ network.

The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet LTE is one of the most powerful and lightest waterproof tablets available, coming in at only 6.4mm slim and weighing in at only 270 grams.  With its IP65 and IP68 classifications it is dust tight and can be kept under 1.5m of water for up to 30 minutes.  It also sports Hi-res audio, noise cancelling technology and front stereo speakers.  Coupled with Sony’s 8″ Full HD TFT LCD Triluminos display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and 283 pixels-per-inch (PPI) and Sony’s Live Color LED technology with X-Reality for mobile, you are ready for some serious movies, gaming or videos.

Processing power is provided by the Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core 801 clocked at 2.5GHz backed by a full 3GB of RAM.  Internal storage is set at 16GB, however, it comes with a microSD card slot to add up to an additional 128GB of storage.  There is a main 8.1MP camera with autofocus and a 2.2MP front-facing camera (FFC) for social selfies and video chatting.  A non-removable 4500mAh battery powers the device.  It is the only compact tablet with PS4 Remote Play to use your Xperia Z3 Tablet as a remote screen to connect to and play your PS4 games.

Rogers is pricing the new Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact LTE for $549.99 on a no-term contract and will offer it only in white with both 4G/LTE and Wi-Fi built-in.  Please hit us up on our Google+ Page and let us know if you will be grabbing the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact from Rogers…as always, we would love to hear from you.  Check it out in the video below:
