Business-oriented Fujitsu Stylistic M532 tab to go on sale in Japan in early October for unknown price

by: AdrianSeptember 18, 2012
Before barely getting a chance to take a thorough look at the newly unveiled business-oriented Casio Paper Writer tablet, a new gadget with a similar target got introduced to the public. The Fujitsu Stylistic M532/EA4 will also focus on durability and functionality and will most likely limit itself to the Asian market, but, unlike the Paper Writer, it doesn’t seem to come with a lot of unique features or specs.

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 31, 2012
Apple may have won a sweep in its California patent infringement case lodged against South Korean Samsung Electronics.

by: Bams SadewoAugust 20, 2012
Every now and then phone makers release a market-specific device that won’t see the light of day elsewhere – like the HTC J, a model that the Taiwanese only introduced for the Japanese smartphone market.

Sony Xperia GX to start selling today in Japan for $960 outright

by: AdrianAugust 9, 2012

We’ve been hearing quite a lot about the Xperia GX ever since May, but for some reason Sony has delayed the new phone’s launch a couple of times already. The high-end Japan-bound flagship smartphone is, however, finally supposed to start shipping today, although NTT DoCoMo is still listing it as “not available”.

If you’re a resident of the “Land of the Rising Sun” and you’re on the hunt for a spanking new phone with a lot of oomph and a cool design, you should keep a close eye on NTT DoCoMo’s website, because we’re betting that by the end of the day the GX will in fact show up as “available”.

by: AdrianJuly 3, 2012

Japan is and has been one of the leading markets in technology for the past decade or so, but for some reason major music streaming services have avoided the “Land of the Rising Sun”. Spotify, Rdio, and Pandora are still not available to Japanese users, but fortunately for them Sony’s Music Unlimited is available starting today in the region.

Launched in December 2010 in UK and Ireland, Music Unlimited has enjoyed a pretty impressive spread in the last year or so and is now available in 17 countries around the globe, having well over one million active users.

In Japan, Sony’s on-demand streaming music service will come with initial access to 10 million tracks [...]
