Android 4.1 was said to roll out to the Sony Xperia S in “late March” a while ago, but that deadline hasn’t been met. Instead, word around the street now is JB will be buttering up the 4.3-incher “in a few days”.
According to newly emerged rumors in Sony’s homeland, Japan, the Xperia family might be welcoming three extra members sometime in the summer.
Well, this is unexpected. Sony’s online US Store only started accepting pre-orders for the Xperia ZL yesterday and shipping is already underway.
You know how Mondays are usually pretty slow news days in this little technology world of ours? Well, not today. And we mostly have Sony to thank for that.
Out already in countries like India, Russia and Australia, Sony’s Xperia ZL is ready to take things to the next level. The North American level, that is, where only the mightiest can succeed.
Sony seems to have a really big hassle on its hands, with (way too) many Xperia Z users reporting their phones are suddenly and out of nowhere dropping dead.
Aside from making us face the first world problem of choosing between the very similar Xperia Z and ZL high-end devices, Sony has very recently made buying a budget new Xperia phone also difficult.
I know, you all want the almighty Xperia Z and feel like going for the ZL would mean making a compromise. But if you look closer at the ZL and decide it’s the very close next best thing, you’ll be psyched to hear the thing is due out in Canada on April 2.
You know how we’ve been looking for an Android-based “iPad killer” for the past couple of years only to find no 10-incher capable of dethroning the “enemy”? We’re not sure if we can call Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z the first real iPad killer yet, but it’s definitely close enough.
Released in India, Russia and Australia already, the Sony Xperia ZL is due out in Canada and the US soon. Both pricing and release dates have been kept under wraps so far, but the first pieces of the puzzle are today falling into place.
