It really is the badger's nadgers, the bee's knees, or even the Crow's toes. I can't wait to get mine next week or so. Getting a real bargain of only £10 per month on a 2 year plan with 8GB of 4G data with zero upfront on my staff plan through work saving me £190 if I was to go and buy the 4G variant at £429.99

that web browsing time is perhaps the highest ever for both tablet and smartphone based on gsmarena's test.

It seems ridiculously light for a tablet. I had no trouble reading ebooks on the Tablet Z and this is what I'll be using it most for.

Is there phone calling on the 4G version though? Can you use one of those Bluetooth Handset Remote thingies?

^ The Z3TC has no call function over network so you'll have to use the likes of Skype, Tango or if you're on o2 a product called TuGo which allows you to use your network plan minutes/text over wifi at no extra cost.

So if I used my currrent nanosim then all calls would go straight to voicemail.

Seems strange that Sony would exclude this feature when they already have the perfect accessory for just that function.

Yep thats about the size of it, luckly I'm with o2 so I can use my mins/text on my tablet as well as my phone. It is strange why they would exclude this feature, maybe they've done some research and found out that the amount of people that use a tablet for calls is very small and decided to give it miss, also I don't think it has an IR blaster which is a function I use a lot on my Tablet Z.

If you check out the key findings on page 10 of GSMarena's review it says they the Z3TC has great connectivity unless you need voice calls. Seems a bit strange wonder what the white paper says.

It seems the "colder" display of the Z3 line is responsible for their great battery life, the Z3 Tablet Compact is no exception. PA posted the battery test results for the Z3 Tablet Compact but then deleted it. They are probably gonna show the review first then the battery test post afterwards. It got the longest battery life for a tablet for all the tablets they had tested, lasting 9 hours and 47 minutes. Nexus 9 came in close with 9 hours and 24 minutes of battery life.
One proud Tiger.

Played with one yesterday in Curry's and I am so impressed - very thin and light , even lighter than my Tab S . And the screen is still very sharp even though it is only full HD. I am really tempted to get one!

Get's quite a good recommendation and scored pretty high. The display is not a deal breaker for me but the size and weight seems ideal if you read a lot. A great all round performer.
