Sony is making a comeback (we hope so), with pre-order sell-outs in several markets being a good sign for the Xperia Z. With expected sales of 50 million in 2013, can Sony become the third player in the industry?
The Xperia Z has been promoted in an unusual way in the Czech Republic, with T-Mobile highlighting its waterproof features.
Remember how freaked out we were of HTC Droid DNA’s apparently meager 2,020 mAh battery at first? And how we thought the 5-inch Full HD panel, quad-core Krait CPU and 2 GB of RAM will squeeze the juice out of that “ticker” in no time?
Kenichiro Hibi, MD of Sony India, mentioned during a press conference that the company is aiming for Rs 3,500 crore in sales from its Xperia lineup, and also outlined the various steps the company will be taking to achieve this target.
We know, Sony’s Xperia Z is all the rage at the moment, what with its waterproofing and all, but the ZL deserves a turn in the spotlight too.
At a press event earlier today, Sony officially launched the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL smartphones in India, priced at Rs 38,990 and Rs 35,990 respectively. Are you going to be picking one up?
Last week we reported that the FreeXperia developer team had released FXP208, a port of CyanogenMod 10.1 for the Sony Xperia Z and ZL. Now the team has released the FXP209 update, adding WiFi and sensor support to the mix.
After making some serious waves in Europe, Sony is taking the Xperia Z east. Here’s the latest on the flagship phone’s availability in India and Indonesia.
Sony is apparently working on a new Xperia smartphone that should be unveiled this summer: the C670X, which will feature a 4.8-inch full HD display, Snapdragon 600 CPU and Android 4.2.
Aaand it’s over. Too soon, too uneventful, but what can you do? After all, it’s not like we expected MWC 2013 to blow our socks off.
