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...

sony-tablet-p-1

With all the praise that Sony has received for their effort to bring something new to the Android tablet experience, it’s rather a anti-climactic to see how little attention their tablets... have received from technophiles in the US.

However, things may change, now that AT&T decided to bring forth the Sony Tablet P to the US. The arrival of this innovative clamshell tablet  to A...

Sony-no-Quad

If you have been waiting with bated breath for Sony to join the growing list of quad-core Android phones in the market, you may have to wait a little bit longer – like, a year longer – since... that seems to be the plan according to Sony Mobile’s Product Marketing Manager Stephen Sneeden. Talking with CNET Asia at the Mobile World Congress earlier in the week, he said that it is likely that th...

xperia

Last night, Sony showed us the newest members of its Xperia NXT series, the Xperia U and Xperia P. The new NXT brand, launched at CES with the Xperia S, embodies Sony’s commitment to change the image... of its ill-fated mobile products. Just ten days ago, the Japanese have finally signed the divorce papers with Ericsson, and now Sony is ready to shine again on its own. The new U and P devices are the fi...
