sony-make-believe

A far cry from Samsung’s smashing numbers, Sony is experiencing yet another lackluster financial quarter. During the second quarter of the year, the Japanese giant... saw its operating profit slid down 77% to $80 million and suffered a net loss of $310 million. These figures are much worse than what analyst had expected.

In a not so surprising move, Sony has sl...

Xperia-SL-white-and-silver

It’s hard to keep up with so many Xperia models that Sony Mobile has been and will be churning out, but at least the Xperia SL – the successor to the Xperia S... – is something that we already knew about (albeit a little) and have reported before. Following earlier leaks that showcased the many colors of Xperia SL – black, pink and purple – what you’r...

Xperia-Jelly-Bean

Sony faced a PR nightmare when one of its UK-based spokespersons spilled the beans on the company’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update plan for the 2011 Xperia smartphones, or better said, lack... thereof. To calm the tension, the HQ office has now issued a corrective statement.

As posted on Sony’s blog, they said that earlier confirmation about the snubbing of last year’s  Xperia ph...

Xperia-Tablet

When Sony announced it will organize a special “unveiling event” in Berlin at the end of August, we knew that the company was preparing to launch at least a couple of new and exciting products.... However, it will be hard for the Japanese to surprise us in any way, as their future devices have been almost certainly revealed.

The Hayabusa phone has been known for a while to be the global version...

XperiaGX-XperiaSX

We’ve been waiting for Sony’s Xperia GX (aka Hayabusa) for quite some time now, hoping that it will be able to stir things up in the high-end phone niche. Anticipation... grew gradually over the last few months, as we found out more and more about the handheld, and we now finally know when it will start selling.

As you might already kn...

Sony_Xperia_tipo

All eyes might be fixed on Sony’s upcoming high-end Hayabusa and Mint smartphones, but the company is also planning to strengthen its entry-level line-up, too. The Xperia Tipo, which we saw... not long ago getting the FCC’s approval, will be hitting the UK in just a few weeks.

That’s a fact, and not some sort of rumor, even though Sony has yet to release a statement on the matter...

Sony-Xperia-GX

Samsung and HTC don’t have much competition in the high-end smartphone market niche these days, but we knew for a while that Sony is preparing a charge against the S3 and the One X. But, while... Sony’s future flagships look really special in theory, the release delays might seriously affect their practical chances of making a difference.

According to official information on NTT DoCoM...

Sony-Xperia-J-front

We first learnt and got a glimpse of the Sony Xperia J – known also as the ST26i – about two weeks ago. If the first round of leaked pictures of the J wasn’t good... enough in satisfying your Xperia craving, we have more photos of Sony’s upcoming mid-range phone out in the open.

Bringing the goodies this time is ePrice, where...

Sony-Xperia-S-front

Smartphone manufacturers have been known to lock the bootloaders of their devices, ostensibly because of security concerns. This is an ongoing battle between the large Android development community... and device manufacturers, with the former obviously hoping to take full advantage of the open-source nature of Android.

The search is still on to find the perfect way to provide complete user access w...

Xperia-arc-front

Compared to its peers, Sony has been rather generous in bringing the latest Android OS update to yesteryear’s Xperia phones. But it looks like the dessert treat will stop at Ice Cream Sandwich... for owners of Xperia phones that were released in 2011.

The discouraging news came from Sony Mobile UK Product Manager John Cooper, who has been answering questions about the Jelly Bean upgrade on...
