New Sony Sound Bars announced, with Google Cast support

Creating your own home entertainment system for aural and visual pleasure has never been easier now, because of all these new products that OEMs have been releasing.

Sony Xperia Z3 vs Sony Xperia Z4: Slight improvements might make the difference

We expect that most major OEMs release a flagship every year. And every time a consumer would buy the current flagship, there's always that unacknowledged fear that next year's new flagship might be better (as it should be right?) and so you might be "wasting" money buying the current one. The latest smartphone to present this dillema to its consumers is Sony which just announced its new flagship, the Xperia Z4, coming this summer. So should Xperia Z3 owners panic now and get ready to trade up?

Sony Xperia Z4 reportedly for Japan only, different flagship for rest of the world

So Sony just recently announced its flagship for this year, the much awaited Sony Xperia Z4. The announcement was made via official press release, and the new flagship device is set to be launched this summer. All is right in the world again. But hold your horses! What is this that we’re hearing that the Xperia Z4 might only be offered in Japan, and that there will be a different Sony flagship device for the rest of the world? What is this?!?

Sony speculated to announce the Xperia Z4 this April 20

Most of the flagship phones from the biggest phone manufacturers have been released already. Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are already making waves while the LG G4 will be unveiled this coming April 28. We're only waiting for Sony to send an official press event for the Xperia Z4 after the company skipped the Mobile World Congress last month. There was no sight of the Sony Xperia Z4 but the past few weeks, we've been seeing a lot of leaked images, more leaked photos, and some leaked renders. We can't ignore those leaked specs via GFXBench and that FCC sighting earlier this month too.

Sony Lifelog partners with IFTTT for new recipes for wearables

Wearables are a great way of tracking your daily activities without having to log it in a notebook, old-school style. But when you add even more "recipes" to the pot, then it will be even easier to take digital note of your fitness routines, how much calories you've consumed, how many hours you've slept, etc, particularly if you need these things for health reasons. Sony Lifelog is partnering with If This Then That (IFTTT) to create a channel specifically for owners of Sony devices.

Sony (finally) rolls out Lollipop to several Xperia Z devices

Late last week Sony told us that they will finally be bringing the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update to several Xperia Z devices, although they did not give a specific date (probably to avoid complaints if it didn't pan out). But today, they are much more confident as they announced that the rollout for the update to the Xperia Z3 Dual, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact, and Xperia Z Ultra will start today and will reach worldwide markets eventually.

Sony Remote Device Lab brings Theme Creator tool

If you have tried creating a theme on Sony's Theme Creator tool, you can now test it using the Remote Device Lab. The fee web service is still in beta but it should be able to help your test your creation on real Sony Xperia devices. This is important because you check the resolution and densities on different screen sizes.

Android 5.0.2 coming to Sony Z series starting next week

"Product so and so will be receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop update soon". This has been a common headline in a lot of tech news the past months, but some Android devices from different OEMs are still waiting for the update to rollout. Sony has been part of that kind of news when it comes not just to their Xperia devices but to their other series as well. At least now, they've finally announced a date. Well, sort of.
