Smartwatch, we have some good news this afternoon. During the busy event with the Galaxy S 4 yesterday, Sony launched an update for their Smartwatch app bringing new features and tons of new looks to your watch face. The watch is getting better and better and we have all the details.
Sony previously announced plans to release the Xperia ZL for those in the US. That bit came back in early-March. The catch is that the handset will be available unlocked and contract-free. Basically, while it will be available for purchase, it will likely be selling at a price higher than many are willing to pay. Enter a carrier subsidized model which looks like it will be coming by way of AT&T.
Sony and T-Mobile in the Czech Republic sure know how to launch a flagship smartphone. We all know the impressive Xperia Z phone is waterproof, but a T-Mobile store in CZ took this even further and hired a Supermodel to help show off the capability. How exactly? By having a few supermodels jump into a shower while using the device.
Sony must feel one of the ways to win that race for third is to begin attracting iPhone users.

IDC (International Data Corporation) report that covered smartphone sales for the fourth quarter of 2012. That report noted the quarter as having a strong demand for smartphones and of heated competition between vendors. Well, truth be told is that the heated competition seems to be more of two races as opposed to one.
