Sony Xperia Z

Sony Xperia Z goes up for sale early in Europe

Sony has an impressive new smartphone headed to market soon. Simply known as the Xperia Z. Their new flagship smartphone was pretty impressive when we got our hands on it at CES, and now it looks like those in Europe can get it right this minute. Last week Sony confirmed the device would hit the streets starting February 21st in Europe, but it appears to already be available.

CMO Steve Walker to leave Sony Mobile

After 17 years of being with Sony, Sony Mobile's Chief Marketing Officer, Steve Walker, is leaving the company to pursue new challenges. Steve Walker has been instrumental to Sony's success throughout the years, with one of his major accomplishments being the rebranding of Sony's mobile division from Sony Ericsson to Sony Mobile in February 2012. Walker's last project will be the launch of the Sony Xperia Z. It's a bit poetic, with the launch of Sony's game-changing flagship device comes the departure of its chief marketing officer. Walker believes that the launch of the Xperia Z, along with the global marketing campaign which he headed, will bring Sony to its next chapter. He also feels like with its next chapter, it is only natural that he pursues his own next chapter as well. Walker's position will be taken over by Jacob Sten, who is currently the head of Sony Mobile's newly-created product marketing department. Dennis van Schie, Corporate Vice President of Sony Mobile, says that the structural changes that are happening inside of Sony Mobile right now will help support the 'One Sony' global operating model that will help the company progress to the next level. Steve Walker will leave the company at the end of March, and he did not mention where he'd be heading to next. But with the anticipated success of the Sony Xperia Z, and the creation of Sony's global marketing campaign, there's no doubt that he'll be heading somewhere big. [timeline] [via Marketing Magazine]

Sony confirms Android 4.2 for Xperia Z shortly after launch

There are a lot of things to be excited about with Sony's incoming Xperia Z handset, but one thing that has some users a little disappointed is the fact that the phone will ship with Android 4.1 installed on it. There's nothing particularly wrong with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but it isn't the newest version of Android available. These users would like to see Android 4.2 running on the device when it launches, which unfortunately won't be the case.
