Great news for our UK readers who really like the Xperia S. We’ve just learned that O2 and Three will be carrying the Xperia S on their network, when it arrives this March. We’ve also learned that the White version of the Xperia S will be a Phones4U exclusive. Phones4U announced that it has achieved nationwide exclusivity on the white Xperia S in the UK. So what about the rest of the world? When is T-Mobile and/or AT&T going to get the Xperia S? Hopefully we don’t have a repeat of what Verizon did with the Galaxy Nexus and delaying…

Just three months ago, Sony was confident enough to say that they expect to gain a ‘significant’ share of the Android tablet market. However, they have started to lessen the prices of their Tablet S devices with their retailers. From the original $698 price for the 32GB Tablet S, the price has been discounted and is now for sale at only $500 in some markets. Meanwhile, the 16GB version is available at $400. Perhaps one reason for this is because the prices of Sony tablets are still too high for most users. In fact, many of their tablets are as…

With so many Android devices suspected to be the next to contain the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, one can only hope that they will all be real. But unlike others, Sony has been pretty quiet about coming out with an ICS update for their Tablet P and Tablet S devices. To confirm this, Sony posted the news on their online forum. Previously though, the company already released their plan to come out with an Android 4.0 update for their Sony Ericsson Xperia starting March 2012. As of this writing, the only device that runs the latest Google mobile…

Sony is promising to update their whole Xperia line-up to Android 4.0 next year, and also LG says they will update at least 4 of the Optimus phones to ICS: LG Optimus 2X, 3D, Black and LTE. Out of the 4 the LG Optimus Black is the only single core one, so this gives us confirmation that Android 4.0 will work on single core phones, too, in case you were worried – with the whole Nexus One not getting it thing. Of course, I believe Nexus One is not getting it mainly because of internal storage constraints than anything, and…

Ever since 2001, when Sony Ericsson first began, the company was always trailing behind someone else. Now, sitting in sixth place in the cell phone market, Sony has decided to take action against its other half. Despite producing some quality tablets and hand-held gaming systems, Sony has called it quits for Ericsson. In the late days of October, Sony handed close to US$1.5 billion to Ericsson. In addition to the buyout, Sony has put the ax to its Walkman and feature phone line. Therefore, Sony has just become an Android-exclusive phone manufacturer. Samsung, HTC, and Motorola sit very happily atop…

  One characteristic of the disruptive technologies, is that the old leaders of a market usually don’t even see them coming, because they are too focused on their own business, on how they’ve always done things, and they hate the idea of a dramatic change in their business. Over the past few years, it became clear that people enjoy more and more spending time playing games on their smartphones, as better games became available, and even people who were using portable game devices like PSP or Nintedo DS, started feeling less of a need to buy those kinds of devices,…

Sony Xperia Arc HD (Nozomi) Features a 720p Screen and Is “Blazing Fast”

We’ve heard about Nozomi before, and I was saying how maybe, just maybe, SE (now Sony) will start catching up in the hardware department, too, in 2012, after they’ve been pretty aggressive in the software updates department so far this year. But that’s really all Sony’s lacking from becoming a real top dog in the smartphone market. Well that, and perhaps slimming down their devices a bit more. I’m not talking about the Arc series. The Arc is pretty slim as it is, and I’m sure Arc HD will be even slimmer. But I want them to treat their whole…

Life is about to get better for Android-loving gamers as Sony’s Kazuo Hirai announced that the PlayStation Suite will soon be available on more Android devices. The company stirred up a decent amount of excitement with devices such as the Xperia Play, Tablet S and Tablet P, but according to the SCE Chairman, it’s about time that the PlayStation Suite flew out of the nest. “This isn’t an ecosystem where we want to keep everything within the Sony family,” Hirai noted during the AsiaD conference in Hong Kong. “This is not just for Sony devices.” Hirai also mentioned that they…
