Sony's latest smartphone hasn't had time to be in the market yet but it has been rooted already. Thanks to esteemed XDA member DooMLoRD, would be owners of the Xperia Z2 will be able to root their smartphones the same day they receive it, that is, if they wanted to.
The Xperia Z2 might not be easy to get hold of this Spring. In Europe, the launch of the new flagship handset from Sony was pushed back to accommodate supply chain woes. Now it seems as though Sony may still have issues with getting the Xperia Z2 into the hands of waiting customers.
Keen eyes have spotted the Xperia T2 Ultra, with the model number D5316, making its way through the FCC. It seems that Sony will be bringing this mid-tier phablet to the US after all and it will be arriving via T-Mobile.
Sony has just updated the support page for the Xperia M to indicate the release of its Android 4.3 firmware update. While it may not be the latest Android 4.4, considering that the device started life with Android 4.1, it is still a substantial improvement.
When Google announced Android Wear they included a list of partners. Based on that list we have a pretty good idea of who we can expect Android Wear devices from. And on the flip side, who will not be releasing anything with Android Wear. While that may be true, we suspect some may hold out hope if a name didn't initially appear on the partner list.
In a blog post, Sony has announced the Android 4.4 update has begun for some of their devices. The Xperia Z1, Z1 compact, and Z Ultra will all get the Android 4.4 treatment. With the update come some changes for the device — some Android, some done by Sony.
Coming one day after the Android Wear news from Google, Sony is expanding the functionality of their own Smartwatch 2. Sony has said they are "launching the world's first wearable boarding pass." These passes will be provided by way of Vueling, and arriving in app form with the promise of helping make your trip a "bit more seamless."
Calling the Xperia Z2 a victim of its own success, various Sony online stores have removed the pre-order option from the company's latest flagship. However, the company assures its fans that there will be no delay to the April launch, though some now speculate only a few units will be available initially.
How loyal are you? If you use an iPhone, chances are you stick with what you know. For Android, those loyalty statistics dip a bit, according toa survey from Statista. Samsung has the most loyal Android fans — and most loyal users outside of Apple — but the Android fray is still a bit muddled when it comes to sticking with a brand.
