Tablets make just 5% of Sony Mobile sales; likely to shrink further

by XB on 27th December 2014

in Rumours, Sony Tablet


Sony Z2 TabletNewly appointed CEO of Sony Mobile Communications, Hiroki Totoki, recently held a roundtable event for the media in Japan to talk through strategy and future of the mobile business. Judging from the sites that reported on the event, it was a wide-ranging discussion, with most points already touched on previously.

However, there was new information on Sony Mobile’s tablet business that we had not heard before. Apparently, Sony Xperia tablet devices only contributed around 5% of sales in 2013. Totoki expects this number to shrink further to 3/4% as we get closer to 2016. However, despite this, there are no plans to withdraw from the tablet market at this stage.

This news comes off the back off rumours that Sony is planning to launch a large 12-inch tablet device during the first half of 2015. Digitimes says that the tablet will feature a 12.9-inch (3840 x 2400 resolution) display, Qualcomm chipset, 8MP camera and thickness of 8.6mm. Sony will target the tablet to the premium segment with a price point that could exceed $1k.

A number of other manufacturers are rumoured to produce their own 10+ inch tablets in 2015 including Apple and Samsung. However, it would be interesting to see what kind of demand these devices see. No doubt all of these companies are going for a different market, one that will cannibalise the laptop/notebook segment. Could you see yourself needing/wanting a 12/13-inch tablet device? If so, let us know why in the comments below.

    I had the original tablet s. What a fantastic size. Whilst I do like my tablet z, I do miss the form of the slightly smaller size. Unless the larger tablet has similar functionality to a laptop. Windows perhaps. Like the underrated Vaio tablets…

  • Štrki

    I’ve broken my computer, so it would be great for me (studing, browsing, playing games, etc)… But, for that pricce, it would have to have beast specs, killer battery life (with minimum 11-12 hours of screen-on time) and 13 MP camera with flash (for that price, that seems reasonable, although I’m sure one won’t go around and take pictures with it).

  • Gav

    As long as they keep away from a windows os…

  • XTZ

    As a Tablet Z owner I agree! Android OS on a bigger tablet would feel clumsy.

  • Sony never learns, so not even news.

  • The price for the Z3 Tablet Compact is too high :(

  • pavan

    Price should be less than 30k inr that the main problem actually I want to buy xperia z2 tablet but it’s price is still 50k in india

  • pavan

    Ya same problem here

  • spatch72

    I don’t think a tablet larger than 10 inches is going to bolster their tablet sales. The Z & Z2 tablets are as big as you want an Android tablet to be, and the Z3 Tablet Compact has been praised far & wide for its size & thinness. It was just too expensive for the average consumer.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Well here in Sweden the Xperia z3 tablet compact was really cheap for a premium 8 inch tablet when it was released. Just about 300 euros or something :p

  • ryq24

    No surprise there. Sony products are too expensive and the tablet market is saturated already. If someone want to buy a high end tablet they go for Samsung or iPad. No one will think about Sony. Same goes to the mobile market. Sony need to re think their strategy.

  • According to the rumors:

    “The 12.97-inch display will have a resolution of 3840×2400 (featuring a 13-inch 4K display), with the additional 240 vertical pixels providing the 16:10 aspect ratio. Inside of the new Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra are some serious specs, with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor clocked at 2.86GHz, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a 12,100mAh battery, PS4 Remote Play and so much more. All of this will find its way into a super-thin body of just 8.6mm.

    Sony is expected to provide its 1/2.3” Exmor RS sensor with f/1.8 Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* lens and 8-megapixel Superior Auto resolution. We should expect Sony to provide Android 5.0 Lollipop on the Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra

    And given that there are rumors of Xperia Z4 Ultra with stylus, I believe that Sony has a lot of thing planned for 2015.

  • Hasan Aleadani

    their problem is the price, all the companies offer their flagship tablets for 500$ except sony which offers it for about 650$

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    I own one tablet. That tablet is Sony Xperia Z 4G/Wi-Fi. Now when Sony promised to release Lollipop on it there’s no need to buy a new one. But still… I’m very interested in a 4K device. We will have to see what happens in a near future ;-)

  • David Hvatov

    Of course no one gonna buy their tablets, because almost every Z2 Tablet got dead pixels over the screen. Sony service centre changed 4 times display and problem still exist. After some weeks or months these dead pixels come back!

  • Sony is customer unfriendly company and paying the price for that.

  • I won’t get a tablet from Sony since it’s far more expensive than the another tablet in my country , Samsung, Apple tablet is cheaper here. Furthermore I use my tablet just for some web browsing , media consumption and little gaming that I think Apple’s iPad had advantage off. And hey , it’s got plenty of apps and games and powerful battery life too.

    fighting is bravery but fighting by knowing early that result is “loose” is comedy. That is what I can understand from this. Too much cost and lack of good post purchase support, makes customers go for other brands. Even me a big fan of sony products suggests to look around instead of blindly going for sony products. Now a days, sellers are delivering products for 18 INR ( 0.2 CENTS) including shipping with guaranteed return. So people have hell lot of choice out side. “To sustain in the market its better to provide decent product but high customer service after purchase than selling a product with too much technology but providing almost negligible support”.

  • dreamgs1

    yes that is the problem. a normal buyer cannot buy even after 2 years even though the product got expired with old android os. So they will not get a chance to do hands on.

    Add a proprietary chip for older ps and vita games and suddenly find yourself on top, not that difficult.

  • SXZ

    In tablet mode, Android UI is too mess while iOS’s UI give a much better user experience Maybe Xperia UI should get overhaul… Something like get rid of the app drawer and improve the 3D shadows, animations and effects for example when open an app.

  • jmaxim917

    Sony’s problem has always been price and they still don’t get it. I believe they rather sell 10 at $650 each to an exclusive audience rather than sell 100 at $300 each to every one else.

  • Kunal Shukla

    you need a robust software for tablet to sell… unfortunately sony’s android version doesnt offer anything more than the stock and tablets just wont sell on looks

    I think this 13″ tablet will partially replace the VAIO ultrabook along with a keyboard case. That’s an interesting move since Sony discontinued the Vaio brand outside of Japan.

  • amirul

    So expensive in Malaysia….. Bitch

  • SXZ

    No! their problem is Xperia Tablets aren’t good enough

    Sony get in tablet market later and their tablets aren’t better than any competitors (Apple iPad and Galaxy Tab/Note)

    Sony need to rethink about the vision of their products

    For example the NOTE 4 which is characterized by S-Pen, So what about Sony?
    If Sony is the symbol of entertainment… May Xperia Tablets are positioning for entertainment and creativity?

    XPERIA TABLET have two size – – 8.9″ / 13″ with 4K display,
    – Dual-boot android/VitaOS(for gaming),
    – have PSVita card game slot
    – responsive and sensitive display that can use finger, pencil or any stylus to write note and sketch
    – Built-in Note/Writing/Sketch software features,
    – water and dust resistant

  • Vuyo Ncube

    ARM-based tablet market is a stone hard boring Samsung-Apple duopoly and thus the push for innovation is near non-existent. I don’t see G Pads, Nexus 7s, MiPads, Shield Tablets etc. Just a bland ocean of Galaxies and iPads.

  • Okazuma

    Sony tablets are characterized by water and dust proof certifications…..

  • Hasan Aleadani

    True. Their tablets need a better software

  • SXZ

    Water proof is a good feature no doubt but Samsung can put this feature into its Galaxy Tab too if they want while sony has gone so far with PlayStation, I think It’s better if Xperia Tablets will also have the ability to play PS Vita’s games… Don’t you see? sony has a big advantage over its competitors.

    OneSony! BE MOVED!

  • Phillip

    yes, in new zealand it pricedwell also, nz$580, just slightly more than half of the price of z3

  • Rafael Kafka

    I would love to have a Sony 13′ tablet for me and one for my niece. It is really better for her to have Android than a desktop system and for me Android is amazing, simple, fast and effective. It would sell like water in the desert here in Brazil!

  • Rafael Kafka

    I would gladly pay for a beauty with those specs. Yes, to everyone complaining, Sony is not cheap because it is best, since the 80’s we know that and there is a trust that so few brands built.

  • Mats L

    Love my 10 inch tablet Z2. Great for reading news, twitter and pdf files. I hardly use my smartphone reading news anymore. And twitter and FT for instance are way better on a tablet than on a PC.

    I would definitely upgrade to a 12 inch, not that I need 12 inch, but the 4K resolution would be great. If the unit has a stylus I would be very happy.

    I think the fact that Z2 is water proof is a great selling point. Sitting at the breakfast table and getting some butter from the sandwich on the screen in not a problem. Also bringing out in in the rain is fine.

    Maybe the market is not ready for tablets yet, but I feel strongly that they will take the place of the newspaper and magazine in the very near future.

    Hope Sony survives!!

  • I’m not so sure it’s the price. I bought into Xperia Z 3 tablet with not much thought to the price, I simply like it better than any other tablet out there right now. I will say though that almost everybody who sees it when I’m using it asks me what in the world it is! The non tech oriented general public has no awareness of the Xperia of brand at all, phone or tablet, especially in North America.
    I gave my sister a Z3 phone with a smartband talk and Sony high-resolution headphones….
    upon unwrapping she looked up at me as if I had brought something from 20 years in the future, she had absolutely no awareness of any of this stuff and she is a perfect example of the average American consumer.

    Sony has great products, I think the main issue is absolutely nobody knows they exist.

  • Rene Pedroso

    100% Correct

  • Adam

    The Post PC Era is over.
    You need a computer. You need a phone. A tablet is nice to have. It’s more convenient to use a tablet than a computer or phone for some purposes, but there are few things that you can do with a tablet that you can’t do with a computer or phone.
    With phones getting bigger and bigger, seven- and eight-inch tablets are looking increasingly pointless. The increasing popularity of laptop/tablet hybrid devices isn’t helping dedicated tablets either.

    Same here in the EU. They know sony but they believe its a lame old brand. Many of them bought a z3 after using mine… And i dont sell it or brag about it or what not. They’re curious because mine is green and pretty lol

  • Timel

    LoL No one cares about Sony hahahaha And what? you said their products are great? really? 100% Bullshit! Because a Z3 has the worst camera when compares with an iPhone 6, Note 4, Oppo Find 7. About sound quality? Sorry but an iPad Air, iPhone 6, Note 4 even Find 7 have much better sound quality than Z3, which is just normal. Sony Z3 sucks and has nothing special than its competitors! This is the truth!

    So Sony problem is their crappy products with shitty marketing!

    Same reason why tech blogs can’t accept the fact that Sony’s high end devices should be on the list of Top devices. They know that consumers or majority of the readers doesn’t know what it is. Popularity always wins.

    i don’t think he’s a hater. He has a point. Apple and Samsung are two popular brand. Their marketing strategy works. People love to get what’s trend or popular.

  • ?? ???

    Agreed.. Marketing is key for Sony moving forward.. I think Sony will only start to dent the market after they drop the Xperia branding and push something faaaaar more familiar to the general public.. PlayStation.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    I think the best solution for Sony to come back to the game is that they should go for a nexus device(s), Well they have good connections with google I assume so they can talk into make Xperia Nexus device(s) with premium design(not omnibalance, but something premium) with their Sony lens which should be far superior and better than Z1, Z2, Z3, Even better than the 2015 CES one, technically which kicks Apple in the stomach. When they’re getting into talks they should totally ignore there DRM keys or policies cause Nexus devices are developer phones so lots of people will unlock their Bootloaders to test things, like kernels. So they can’t have that camera function is gone or x-reality gone etc. so the phone should be DRM free. and it shouldn’t be cheap plastic. It should feel the premium feeling. and let google handle the software but they should let google to have a look at their stamina mode to implement it on the device so it will have an amazing life. Well I just gave’em an idea. I just don’t know even they will read my post. I am just telling this that Sony is the only main company who’s not involved in making a nexus device. Plus I have seen that after getting into nexus business those companies sales rose up. So I hope the new CEO or the head of the mobile division will look into something like this. Cause I am telling you that if they get into it they won’t lose it. But they must make sure that it won’t be a flop but an apple killer. :D

    PS: make sure to give few free movies when they purchase the phone like “The Interview” and the ability to play playstation remote.

  • JustNameIT

    Hm… Z3 is no bullshit, cuz it’s lot better than low-end smartphones

  • Drunk

    Lets face it. Tablets are a harsh business. Most of us here (at least) are already capable on handling most if not all of our essential daily task on our mainstream smartphones. So what’s left that a tablet could provide is only but a bigger screen and a possible longer battery life.

    Base on these assumptions, not only the Z series tablets but the tablets industry in a whole are being affected by the state reasons mentioned above.

    IMHO tablets should provide more functionality and features than just battery life and screen size alone as compared to their flagship smartphone counterparts to be able to hold their own in today’s market.

    Your comment about the Z3 offering nothing special is simply not true. PS4 remote play is exclusive to Xperia devices. Being able to play PS4 in another room on my xperia z3 tablet is one of the main reasons I chose it over its competitors.

  • Z Ultra buyer

    Streaming services have become extremely popular now, people love them and Sony has Video and Music Unlimited that sony can take advantage of it, I mean Something like give three months free Video and Music Unilimited for high end Xperia buyers, I believe this strategy can increase their sales!

  • Timel

    But not everyone have PS4 or crazy much about PlayStation and if you ask me when end-users have to choose the phone they care about the camera quality like Auto Mode quality more than the stupid console gimmick like PS4 remote play.

  • phil g

    You seem to have a hatred for Sony devices, why are you on a blog that caters towards Sony and it’s mobile devices?

    Nope, nonsense. I’d rather have Vita with many apps than an android tablet with vita gaming capability.

    You can use a pencil as a stylus on Sony phones (Z Ultra, Z2 etc). It has hi-res audio output via micro usb port. DSEE HX in music player, which upgrades the quality of compressed music files. Z2 and Z3 have digital noise cancelling thru those earphones which needs a 5 pole connector in 3.5mm port, which none other phones have. These phones are waterproof, which your oppo find7, apple iPhone / iPad, note4 and all aren’t. Check the battery endurance rating of GSMArena, Sony’s phones are on the top – Z3C at 101hrs, T2 Ultra at 96hrs, Z2 at 89hrs, Z3 at 85hrs..whereas your iPhone 6 is at 61hrs. Z3 offers ISO upto 12800, which is great in extreme low light conditions and since it has 20.7 MP camera, it can easily downscale the photo to 8MP and minimize the noise. Other than that, the build quality is just great, check the drop tests.. Most Sony phones survive it. Talking about the build, Sony phones have a physical camera shutter key, which IMO is really great. So, please stop being a hater and try a Sony phone once before commenting.

  • gunboat_d

    I have never seen a galaxy tablet in real life. It’s either ipad, or something low end like a Nook or Kindle Fire.

  • azzido

    No matter other conpobents, I will never buy any Sony tablet until it will suffer these poor 8MPx cameras, quality of these cameras is shockingly poor and that’s the only reason why I will never buy it. Moreover, 10 inch suits me better so NO! Neither this time. Maybe some day they will produce something I will be interested in but it doesn’t look like.

    It is also rumored that Z4 Ultra is going to suffer worse, 16MPx camera when compared to standard Z4. I wanted to buy Ultra but again, due to poor camer I will not. Maybe Sony will answer how come Compact – smaller version can get the same camera as standard Z but Ultra always needs to suffer??? The same goes for tablets.

    Big NO!

  • Sander Puus

    I can name one thing for what tablets are better than phones or pcs/laptops – watching movies with, and tv via dedicated app in my country(every tv provider has one now). Especially with sony’s tablets supporting 128GB micro SD for loads of movies and fullHD screens for viewing quality, and superior battery life to do all that.

  • Adam

    Indeed. Statistics show that watching videos is the second most popular use of tablets (behind only Web browsing).

    But while watching videos might be better on a tablet than on a computer or phone, videos can be watched on a computer or phone, which makes tablets a tougher sell now that tablets are no longer the new, trendy product category.

  • Sander Puus

    that is on point yes, tablets have lost their “new and exciting” factor. They need to implement something thats going to make a tablet something you need not just want because of… want :D actually funny thats sales 101 – to succeed in a certain market you need to create a need for your thing… or be No.1 in the world like in samsung’s or apple’s case and people will buy your thing blindly no matter what you do

    Well, they sure are expensive. But also extremely good. If Sony gets it right with the screen once the Z4 tablet comes around I’ll ditch my Samsung Tab S 8.4 in a New York Second. I LOVED my two Zs but skipped the Z2/Z3 compact because I need every pixel of screen resolution.

    “price point that could exceed $1k”

    LOL.

  • azzido

    I am the one that doesn’t want to to take picture with Z smartphone and each time transfer it to the tablet to show to other people on bigger – tablet screen…

    Sony should give Ubuntu Touch a go. Release a top tier Ubuntu tablet with the option of flashing Android on it. I have no doubt it would sell well, at least initially.
    I would buy one, and it might also inspire Sony to release their bloody PCC on Linux so I can update their bloody phones.

    I got my Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact for Christmas and love it. I think the glass could fit a tiny better but it’s freaky using the tablet under running water! And it performs great. It’s great to play my PS4 on. I love how it’s different to the norm and not many others will have one, but also it’s a shame as Sony make great tablets. And the general public needs to get out of the mindset that tablets means Apple or Samsung as that is all they think of. They are missing out on some great devices out there like Sony.

    What??? You expect to play games on a tablet with a 4k screen…. OK. No, you are utterly wrong. Sony has already been beta testing it’s streaming PlayStation game service, it already has digital music and video streaming services, all it needs to do is integrated those into its devices. It’s simple and it’s what they are doing.
    Plus I and many others would MUCH rather have good battery life and PS4 or PlayStation game streaming over a pointless 4k screen anyway. Stop riding the hype train, you will never ever appreciate a 4k resolution on a small screen, and 2k is really just as pointless, eating battery life for no real benefits.

    Really? I can give you a story about iOS, setting up child accounts. My nephew got an ipad for Christmas and I had to set up his account. I looked on the net and did so but soon discovered that iOS is crap with this. You have different ways to set these types of accounts up with iOS and each way then gives different features like any purchases made requiring authentication by his father. In the end I had to lie about his age to make it work with the way I set the account up and in Apple’s support forums their are plenty of people complaining about this, the only other option was to start from scratch with another username and email address which we obviously didn’t want to do, Apple give you NO warning of the different features you get with the different ways to setup accounts. And as it is after setting this all up it now he can’t buy anything in the Clash Of Clans game with his iTunes vouchers he got! We contacted Apple who said they haven’t a clue why and to contact the game maker.
    So yeah, don’t be fooled with iOS being ‘simple’. Because it has bugs and Apple offer No solution to them, or seem to care, it’s another reason why I hate iOS and find Android much better.
