Sony-Tablet-S

It took Sony a while to update the dual-core Tablet S to Android 4.0, but Sony fans rejoice, as the 10-incher is finally getting its long awaited tasty scoop of Ice Cream Sandwich.

According... to a post published earlier today on Sony’s official blog, Tablet S owners should have already received prompt messages for a system update over-the-air. If, however, you own a Tablet S and you are yet to...

xperia p xperia u

Unveiled back in February at the MWC, Sony’s Xperia P and Xperia U Android-based smartphones didn’t exactly look like a duo to die for. With beautiful designs, but rather modest specs and... an almost inexplicable ICS omission, the two devices were received with mixed feelings by pundits and regular users. And if the lackluster innards of the two Xperias didn’t provide enough reason...

The old adage tells you that when life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade. Things may not be that simple for budding Android developers who don’t have the resources to invest in several... Android devices to ensure the compatibility of their apps. Sure, emulators are good, and the one included in the Android SDK recently got a major usability boost thanks to hardware acceleration. But emul...

sony-make-believe

What a difference a couple of decades — and some bad moves – made for Sony. This is a company that has created some of the world’s most iconic and beloved piece of electronic gizmos... (Walkman and PlayStation, anyone?), but now sees itself playing second fiddle. We’re talking about a multimedia powerhouse that was once close of buying a troubled company called Apple in the early 1...

sony-smartwatch

After drawing our attention back at the CES in January with its cool looks and functionality, Sony’s SmartWatch is finally up for sale and might well become popular among gadget lovers, as... it is not very expensive.

While looking as your ordinary wristwatch at a first glance, the SmartWatch is much more than that. The micro display accessory can establish an active Bluetooth commu...

Xperia U

Even though Sony isn’t exactly the most popular Android smartphone manufacturer on the market, the Japanese have always had a few things going for them. I, for one, have always liked the... Xperia designs and especially their top-notch TFT displays.

However, if we are to believe a rumor from a couple of days back, it seems that Sony will try to mix things up a little with at least...

sony google tv

As excited as we were more than a year ago, when we first heard of the Google TV concept, we must admit that we were pretty disappointed by how the concept turned out to be in reality.

The... pricing and lack of content were the two biggest problems users had with Google TV, so it’s no wonder that the device didn’t draw the kind of public that Google and its partners expected. The second ge...

Ice Cream Sandwich

We are all eagerly awaiting for the multitude of phones and tablets featuring Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to arrive. ICS was first announced and launched (on the Samsung Galaxy... Nexus) in October last year, and since then, every device manufacturer announced upgrades to Android 4.0 for at least some of their devices. But, as of now, according to Google itself, only 1.6% of al...

Sony Xperia Neo L

In December last year, Sony announced that its entire 2011 Xperia portfolio would be receiving the ICS update. The update will first be available on the Xperia Art S, Neo V, and Xperia Ray in... late March. In late April or early May, Xperia Arc, Play, Neo, Mini, Mini Pro, and Pro owners should expect 4.0, along with owners of Sony Live with Walkman.

Joining the already significant line...

Sony Tegra 3

Sony has drawn criticism (including from us), for the lackluster device lineup that they’ve shown at MWC, a few weeks ago. I am talking about the conspicuous absence of a quad-core flagship,... something that even ZTE and Huawei, the new kids on the Western markets block, have managed to deliver, and, in the case of Huawei with stunning success.

And Sony doesn’t do any better in the t...
