Sony Mobile is currently running a competition on Facebook for an “exclusive mystery prize package”. Sony says that it is excited “to give you a glimpse of our latest innovations and welcome the newest member of the Xperia family.”
However, it is the teaser picture that is interesting showing what looks like a keyboard accessory that could be designed for the Xperia Z4 Tablet. If the rumours of a larger tablet are true, then there is every chance that Sony may try to position the tablet as a quasi-laptop with the right accessories. We will find out for sure on Monday 2 March at MWC. [read more…]
Back in October 2014, Sony added “Android 5.0 (Lollipop)” as the next major Android version in the support pages for all of the Sony Xperia Z series. However, shortly after, Sony pulled the graphic. Well, it is now back again, this time with a sweet Android holding a Lollipop. Could the timing of its re-introduction signify that Sony is about to pull the trigger on the Lollipop update? Wishful thinking perhaps, but with radio silence from Sony on timing we’ll grab anything we can at this stage. [read more…]
Yesterday, we caught a first look of the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua in red. Now a few more leaked photos of the same handset have emerged, but this time we can see what the Xperia M4 Aqua looks like in white. It also looks like this particular model will have silver sides and white nylon corners.
The new pictures highlight where the small notification light sits as well as a full look at the right side of the phone, where the SIM port flap is located along with signature power button, volume rocker and dedicated camera button. So which colour takes your fancy so far? [read more…]

Sony recently released a Purple Xperia Z3 and now to go along with that we imagine it will shortly launch a Purple SCR24 Style Cover Window case. The evidence of this is that Sony has released a Soft Purple Xperia wallpaper theme in the Google Play Store to accompany the case. We cannot see a Purple SCR24 listed so far, but it must be round the corner. [read more…]
Sony is closing the doors on its Music Unlimited service and will launch a new music service called PlayStation Music at the end of March 2015. PS Music will be powered by Spotify and will be available for Sony Xperia devices as well as the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

We’ll bring you the full specs of both devices on Monday. [read more…]

Vodafone Australia has posted its latest “Software Update Weekly Wrap” for 26 February 2015, giving an idea when a customer’s phone will see their next update. The Sony Xperia Z2 and Z3 have been awaiting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update since the start of this month and there has been still no change there. However, the venerable Xperia Z has now just joined that list. Obviously, these reflect a carrier schedule and does not reflect when the generic updates might start to flow. [read more…]
