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.
The Sony SmartWatch now has a new firmware update available that adds notification previews, new watch faces and improved search to the mix.
With the Xperia Z hoping to propel Sony into the top dogs of the smartphone market, we pit it against a couple other phones that once held that role.
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.
With the high-end smartphone niche fully covered by the beautiful Xperia Z and ZL, all that Sony needed to make 2013 look like the most promising year ever was a little something something for the entry-level and mid-range sectors.
Along with the Xperia SP, the company also unveiled the Sony Xperia L, a budget-friendly mid-range device with the best of Sony camera expertise in smartphone.
Meet the Sony Xperia SP, the not-so-modest little brother of the impressive Xperia Z and ZL. This fellow has been making the rumor rounds for a couple of months now, but has become official earlier today and is due out in Europe and Asia “from Q2 2013”.
