Sony may have unveiled a menagerie of new devices at IFA in Berlin last week, but that doesn’t mean its older tablets and smartphones are bound for obsolescence just yet. This morning, Sony support announced that an update to Android 4.4.4 has begun rolling out to the Xperia Z, ZL, ZR, and Tablet Z worldwide. (more…)
To show good faith, and that they haven’t forgotten about their loyal customers, the Sony team has updated its product pages, detailing the next version of Android which is to hit select Xperia devices in May. So far, the list is pretty solid, with the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, and Xperia Tablet Z slated for the update. (more…)
All hail Android updates. Sony announced this morning that it finalized Android 4.4 Kit Kat firmware for the Xperia Z Utra, Xperia Z1, and Xperia Z1 Compact. According to the company, the update brings performance enhancements, tweaks to Sony’s suite of applications, and the Xperia Themes theming engine. (more…)
After being shown off at CES this past January, we have been patiently awaiting details on when the Xperia ZL (hands-on video here) from Sony would make its way to the States. It has finally been announced that the ZL will come to the U.S. unlocked, in both an HSPA+ and 4G LTE versions. Since it is not being launched through a carrier, you will be looking to spend quite a bit, with the LTE variant costing you $760. If you are only needing HSPA, then take off $40 from that. (more…)
Add another good looking Sony device to the list of phones that Verizon will never see according to a new listing on Sony’s web store. The Xperia ZL has been confirmed by Sony to be hitting our shores sometime in the near future, the only problem is that it will be SIM-unlocked. This means that AT&T and T-Mobile customers can pick up this 5″ full-HD device and swap out their SIM cards if they wish. (more…)
Yes, this will only be relevant to the handful of people with Sony PlayStation certified devices, but hey, we figured we should spread the love. Starting today and for the following six weeks, PlayStation Mobile is handing out a free game every seven days for anyone rocking a certified device.
This week’s game is Samurai Beatdown, so I will continue to feel justified in not owning one of these devices. On the other hand, I really wouldn’t mind getting my hands on the Xperia ZL. I want it now.
If you want your free game, go here.
