Sony Xperia Z phones getting Android 5.0 Lollipop very soon

Owners of Sony Xperia Z phones have only been waiting for the official Android 5.0 software update to be released. We learned about this was under development quickly after the latest Android platform was launched by Google last year. We were expecting a release last week and rollout to some units have already started. We also mentioned that more Xperia devices are receiving the Lollipop update. Unfortunately, we're not certain what will happen to non-Xperia Z phones as Sony already announced that they're not upgrading non-Xperia Z phones to Lollipop.

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra and C3 to get Lollipop update

The Android 5.0 Lollipop update has been official for some months now, but the roll-out to various devices has been going really slowly. In fact, Nexus devices, which understandably are way ahead of the pack, are already on the 5.1 update while a lot of other smartphones and tablets are still stuck with good ole KitKat. Sony just announced that its Xperia Z3 devices, namely the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, will finally be receiving the update, specifically in markets other than the Baltics and the Nordics.

Sony’s SmartEyeglass now available in 10 countries

If you don't mind looking a bit like a dork (not that anything is wrong with that, really) and walking around ooohhing and aaaahing at things that only you can see, then you better get excited because Sony's SmartEyeglass augmented-reality glasses will now be on sale in 10 countries. If you live in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, UK, and the US, then you'll be one of the first to own this device.

More Sony Xperia devices receiving Android Lollipop update

We earlier reported that Sony has started rolling out (finally!) Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 compact to mobile users in the Baltics and the Nordics. Now some sites have reported seeing the firmware build in other Xperia devices as well, like the Xperiz Z2, as well as the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and Xperia Z2 Tablet. But they are being updated only to Android 5.0.2 and not yet to the 5.1 that some Nexus devices already have.

Sony Xperia Z4 leaked renders show unmistakable Sony design

Since Sony, and LG for that matter, didn't reveal any new flagship at MWC 2015 early this month, the mobile world awaits with bated breath what these manufacturers have in store for us when the time comes. While details on the soon to be Xperia Z4 are still slim, a few 3D renders of what is supposedly the upcoming Sony smartphone have leaked out. Unlike LG's promise to make the G4 different from its predecessors, the Xperia Z4 doesn't seem willing to change, whether you like it or not.

First VAIO Phone revealed, puzzling specs and price

VAIO and Japan Communications Inc. have finally revealed the full details of the first ever VAIO Phone. Those, however, who have been eagerly awaiting the kind of phone that would come out of what was once Sony's PC business will most likely walk away with their heads down. The VAIO Phone, as it is named, bears a mix of mid-range specs paired with an almost high price tag that doesn't seem to match. Furthermore, the design isn't even VAIO's own and it simply took one from an ODM that is already used by Panasonic.

Sony releases Stereo Bluetooth Headset SBH70

When it comes to audio accessories, Sony has created some pretty respectable ones, and you don't even have to rob a bank in order to get them (read: reasonably priced). Their latest headphones, the Stereo Bluetooth Headset SBH70, is a water-resistant and lightly-built wireless headset that promises to bring you the "superior Sony sound quality" and is being positioned as the perfect accessory to the Xperia M4 Aqua, Xperia E4, and Xperia Z3 Compact.
