Sony to launch keyboard accessory with Xperia Z4 tablet? [Update]

by XB on 28th February 2015

in Accessories, Rumours, Sony Tablet, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series

Xperia Z4 Tablet KeyboardSony Mobile is currently running a competition on Facebook for an “exclusive mystery prize package”. Sony says that it is excited “to give you a glimpse of our latest innovations and welcome the newest member of the Xperia family.”

However, it is the teaser picture that is interesting showing what looks like a keyboard accessory that could be designed for the Xperia Z4 Tablet. If the rumours of a larger tablet are true, then there is every chance that Sony may try to position the tablet as a quasi-laptop with the right accessories. We will find out for sure on Monday 2 March at MWC.

Update: Sony has now officially teased the same image with the words: “Are you ready for a new way of working?” This pretty much confirms a new keyboard accessory is on its way for the new Sony tablet.

    Would be awesome if that dock came with powered USB ports anf its own battery, that way it won’t be a ‘quasi’ laptop, but a proper Android powered Laptop (and for those who don’t know, even the Z2 is more than enough powerful to run Linux or Win XP in VM).

  • xperiafan324

    Me too, though I should try to cut back because I have my exams around the corner :-D

  • Tlimel

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is better at least it had Multi Windows which is very useful

  • Timel

    HTC One is ugly
    and Sony Xperia is so boring

    Get Nexus 6 or S6, they’re the best android phone on the market this time

    Nexus 6 and s6 are jokes… better Nokia 3310 or Ericsson T10i.

  • AoShinn

    Wow, samsung stupid fan love multi window, samsung take as great promotion on 5.7inch note 4 split into mighty 2.85incH to watch youtube or movie or note. Sadly sony just update some small app like youtube view or video viewer or photo viewer or browser, with the fcking 2 click these small apps appear to be a small window with adjustable size. Just an app, but samsung just like perfect dickhead, its fan mayb more perfect

  • Timel

    Something Japanese product is pretty stupid

  • Reza

    You’re actually and truly stupid here, that’s so obvious.

  • Nguy?n T?n L?c

    I personally think that multi windows is more for the working – productive time than for entertainment, like they would be useful when people needs to copy things.
    For Sony’s small apps, they are nice but their access time need to be improved, there’re always about 2 or more seconds to enter recent app menu and press small app and wait for the app to launch.
    I’m not saying that Samsung split screen is superior than Sony’s small app though. Just try to be more fair.

  • Ritwij

    S6 is not even official

  • Timel

    Bullshit! You look so pity, lying yourself so hard that small app is better than multi windows LoL

    Back to reality No one use s
    mall app, small app is fucking stupid, stupid like Sony fanboy hahaha

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Wonder if u even had a look at the nexus6. I had a chance to use it for few hours and its as ordinary nexus5.

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Hey tinhead, i use the small apps almost for everything like movie viewer, notes, calculator and recorder. Just coz u fart not everyone needs to do one.

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    tinhead no 1 was askin if u like the Japanese sex toys, we were referring to the mobiles. And if i disturbed u u get get busy with ur toys

    Here is one…you don’t need to ask SONY for a small lollipop ….

  • shhh

    Just don’t look too deep in the comments or you’ll get a Lollipop-induced headache.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    That would be very cool of the keyboard had a USB port and battery built in. I wonder how long battery life alone on thus tablet will be

  • Snorky112

    You’re the only clown right here, for all the posts and comments that you’re wrote, it so clear and obvious how deep your mind and how narrow your brain is… Even the kindergarten kids knows how to tell and say a proper word and sentence. May God bless you, btw!!!

  • goldenblls

    I might sell my old Windows laptop and Z3 Tablet Compact to upgrade to a Z4 Tablet Ultra + keyboard. I could get by on that.

  • Sumo

    In a era where touch screen is the trend, the keyboard is still indispensable… Just like real chick compared to virtual chick lol

  • Timel

    Really? Samsung GALAXY can sell more than Sony Shitperia a billion times and you’re still stupid enough to said that no one use Samsung’s softwares? genius!

  • Rikimaru

    This keyboard seem to be elegant.

  • RealityCheck2015

    Can’t wait for tomorrow :P :P :P

  • Snorky112

    exactly, they buy samsung phones because they see them on tv and in the stores, I mean in any store I go theres a section only for Apple, another only for samsung, and all other brands phones are stacked in a corner like if they were uselesss… but I’ve never seen anyone use S Voice or Multiwindow…

  • Raphael

    It would make sense after the termination of Sony VAIO brand. Let’s hope it will be more successful than Microsoft Surface tablets.

  • Guest

    Not just fans, even haters also attached to this site now.. *cough Timel *cough

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Yea, Just coz every one buys a ford and only a handful gets a Royce Royce isnt bad, Its about class, useless tinheads go for tin cans

  • mukul verma

    Why r u promoting ur website on this site?

  • xperia

    Sony its your time now…. Don’t desappoint us tomorrow… I fucking hate samsung.

  • hansip

    Nah for a media consumption device such as Android, Small app is more useful. You want better multitasking? Why settle with Samsung? Go Surface!

  • Timel

    I shall now return to the netherworld where I belong, one day I will be back to wreak havoc across the lands.

  • Dave Maudsley

    Because he is a dumbass, I the news on his site is usually false and a waste of time.

  • ShinOrochiX

    @ the people begging for lollipop.

    Sony have failed to meet their promise (no surprises here), lollipop will be released but *after* their MWC presentation, this is because they do not want the update to distract users (and potential buyers) away from their new products and also they’d rather show off the new version on the new products.

    Anyway, why are you guys so impatient? From what I have seen it is damn ugly (Sony’s lollipop), only god knows what Sony were thinking and what has been leaked I believe is what it will end up looking like.

  • hansip

    If you use my Fast App Switcher and set it to start at startup, you will find that the speed to open other small apps is faster than ever before.

  • Jahbulani

    After MWC 2015, Sony can kiss goodbye to any chances of making it in the high-end smartphone market.

    M4 Aqua? A waterproof phone is nice to have but not having it is never a dealbreaker. Previous Sony phones which were already waterproof didn’t sway the market. Meanwhile HTC and Samsung will unveil their Snapdragon 810 flagship phones. Even Huawei is putting out a premium-ish phone on a 16nm Kirin chip.

    Good luck, Sony.

    Vaio phone news was mentioned once in

  • Raphael

    Yes but Sony VAIO doesn’t exist anymore. VAIO brand was sold to the Japanese fund Japan Industrial Partners IV, Inc (JIP). It’s a private equity firm specializing in investing in turnaround, buyouts, carve-out investments. JIP created a new company called VAIO Corp. focused on Japanese market and based in Azumino City (Nagano Prefecture), the hub of Sony’s former PC operations. It hired 240 Sony employees engaged in PC operations. To get a smoother transition, Sony owns 5% of the new VAIO corporation and its president is a former Sony VP.

  • Does anyone think that they might be trying to replace the vaio division with a more of a chromebook approach.
    Keyboard, chrome os type recent apps. I think Sony’s just started new great things.
    Fingers crossed.

  • RedGhost05

    Man, this thing reminds me the old Vaio Pro series.
