Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact incoming, likely with sub-8 inch display

Seeing Sony tease its next month’s IFA presence with no hint whatsoever regarding a tablet announcement sure caught us by surprise, but we figured the Z3/Z3 Compact smartphone pair simply required too much work to leave room for a Z3 Tablet.
