So what makes us think it's the Xperia Z3 Tablet? Well, XperiaBlog noted that it follows the same naming convention as LTE versions of previous Xperia Z slates, with the Z2 Tablet carrying the model number SGP521 and the Xperia Tablet Z being known as SGP321.
Big or small?
It's hardly proof, but it adds up, especially as Sony has taken to releasing flagship handsets twice a year, so there's no reason it couldn't do the same with tablets. On the other hand XperiaWeb.vn reckons it might be a smaller 8-inch slate.
If it is the Z3 Tablet we just hope Sony gives it a higher resolution screen than the Z2 Tablet, as that was one of our few complaints about the slab.
- Apple is expected to launch a new slate this year too.
