Sony Mobile has outlined its plans for Android 4.4 KitKat, confirming which devices will receive the update to the latest versions of Android, but the company left many questions to be answered.
Japanese conglomerate Sony reported that it lost 19.3 billion yen (US $197 million) during the second quarter of its fiscal 2013. Losses increased in multiple units, but smartphone sales continue to trend upward.
Most of Sony's recent smartphones have so far been available only in Europe and Asia, which was not surprising given CEO Kaz Hurai's recent comments. Beginning today, consumers in the U.S. can finally get their hands on the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and Sony Xperia Z.
Sony CEO Kaz Hirai has publicly stated what anyone paying attention to his company for the past five years already knew: the U.S. market is not a priority for Sony's smartphone efforts; Europe and Japan are areas that command the most attention.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra brought Sony into the realm of large-screen phones unlike any before it. Sony was no stranger to above average displays in its Xperia line, but did the Japanese manufacturer manage to find success with it's first "phablet" attempt?
Sony today added a new Xperia to the list of Android devices that it plans to sell in 2013. At its IFA event in Berlin, Sony confirmed that the Android 4.2-sporting device previously leaked as the "Honami" will soon come to market as the Sony Xperia Z1.
Sony is tomorrow expected to announce the QX10 and QX100, the independent lens-style camera that lacks a traditional camera body but has NFC and Wi-Fi pairing with iOS or Android devices. There's no need to wait because everything you could want to know about the device has already leaked. Here's what we now know about the cameras.
Smartphone cameras have come a long way, but they're still no match for more powerful devices. Still, smartphones have apps and internet features that those powerful cameras do not, so Sony has devised a nice solution to take advantage of both platforms.
Following Google's announcement of Android 4.3 yesterday, existing Android smartphone owners immediately began wondering when their phones would receive the software upgrade. Here's what companies have said so far.
When Samsung announced the Galaxy S 4 Zoom and it's big camera lens, multiple Nokia employees mocked the company by taping DSLR lenses to their Lumia smartphones. It appears that Sony doesn't believe that's such a crazy idea.
