According to a press release by AT&T today, the Sony Xperia TL will be featured in the upcoming James Bond film Skyfall. Finally, we have proof that James Bond is an Android man.
Sony’s recent launch bonanza doesn’t seem to be heading to an end, with yet another phone announced today. The Xperia AX is not an absolute newcomer to the market, being a special Japanese variant of the Xperia V, but it will come with a couple of original features.
Innovation is a tough thing. In the electronics market, it’s pretty unforgiving if you can’t do it. Just ask Sony, Panasonic, and Sharp, once kings of the U.S and Japanese markets. But today, things are different as Apple and Samsung continue to undercut each other in the court and the showroom.
The Nexus-related keep coming in these days, which is only natural considering that every Android fan and their grandmother expect Google to unveil at least one new Nexus smartphone in the coming months if not more. Of those, we keep hearing about a Samsung GT-I9260 handset, whose model number is awfully close to last year’s Galaxy Nexus (GT-I9250).
Sony’s been rather busy lately, releasing a bunch of new phones, as well as a pretty well-received tablet, but that doesn’t mean it has forgotten all about slightly older devices. The Tablet S has never been extremely popular, despite being upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich back in April, but maybe it’s finally time for the 9.4-incher to shine.
Good news for budget Android phone hunters out there. Sony has released its latest Xperia Tipo and Xperia Tipo Dual Android smartphones in the U.S. These are available through Sony’s own retail store, and will be sold unlocked and contract-free.
With all the attention that the Xperia T is getting, it’s easy to forget that Sony has another two new phones that are craving for the same affection, the Xperia J and Xperia V. Especially for the latter, it seems the hype that surrounds the V has noticeably died down, no thanks to the lack of any official announcement of its release.
If you’ve experienced one too many low battery blues on your Xperia devices, you may want to look at what Sony will introduce soon – a trio of external battery packs that will allow you to double and even triple the battery life on your phones and tablets.
The Sony Xperia Tablet S might not be the iPad killer we’ve all been waiting for so long, but, based on the first few online reviews, it looks like a significant upgrade over Sony’s first tablet efforts from last year, as well as one of the best 10-inch options (or well 9.4 inch) Android has to offer right now.
If you’re smitten by the Xperia T – perhaps after seeing that unboxing video that we just posted – and can’t wait to buy it, it looks like several stores are selling Sony’s latest flagship model early. Those in the UK, France, and Germany can get their wallet out now.
