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…

We’ve been waiting for Sony’s Xperia GX (aka Hayabusa) for quite some time now, hoping that it will be able to stir things up in the high-end phone niche. Anticipation grew gradually over the last few months, as we found out more and more about the handheld, and we now finally know when it will start selling. As you might already know, the Xperia GX is the phone’s exclusive branding for Japan, where it will ship via NTT DoCoMo starting Thursday, August 9. One week before that (meaning the day after tomorrow), the carrier will open pre-orders for Sony’s new…

Samsung and HTC don’t have much competition in the high-end smartphone market niche these days, but we knew for a while that Sony is preparing a charge against the S3 and the One X. But, while Sony’s future flagships look really special in theory, the release delays might seriously affect their practical chances of making a difference. According to official information on NTT DoCoMo’s webpage, the Japanese carrier will start taking pre-orders for the Xperia GX on August 2, and ship the phone a full week later, on the 9th. That means that, for some reason, the initial plans –…

The CES, MWC and IFA electronics tradeshows used to be the events where new trends were made and products were unveiled. But lately some of the big manufacturers have shifted their strategies. Samsung, Sony, and Asus have all started to hold exclusive events of their own, to ensure that all the spotlight is on their products. The Samsung Unpacked event from May, when the Galaxy S3 was unveiled, was probably more popular than both this year’s CES and MWC together, and now Sony is trying to do something similar with an exclusive Berlin press conference and “booth unveiling”. Sony’s special…

We can’t really say Sony has the necessary “muscle” to battle Samsung or HTC in the high-end Android universe, but that might well change in a matter of weeks. The company’s flagship device, known by the LT29i and Hayabusa codenames, is getting ever closer to its release, although its existence is yet to be confirmed from official sources. Fortunately, we don’t need official confirmation to know that we are being prepared for something big! If the phone’s FCC approval from a couple of days ago wasn’t enough to warrant Hayabusa’s imminent release, today’s two leaks will most likely seal the…

While in the low and medium-end parts of the smartphone world Sony has made quite the efforts to gain traction over the last few months, the high-tech involvement of the Japanese company has been (officially) almost completely non-existent. Unofficially, however, we’ve known for a while that Sony is preparing something big, in the form of a phone that has gone through more codenames and secret identities than Daniel Craig’s James Bond. The LT29i, aka Hayabusa, aka Xperia GX, aka SO-04D, has been rumored for many months and has now made a “gala” appearance over at the FCC. Before taking a…
