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.
Sony's mini flagship is coated with an anti-shatter film or ASF that is meant to protect the glass beneath from shattering. Apparently, however, this layer of plastic on top of the scratch-resistant glass isn't scratch resistant at all, as a cringe-worthy scratch test video attests to.
Sony's latest smartphone may have not launched yet, but it seems that there will be some interesting accessories available when it does. UK retailer Clove has put up product pages for accessories that will give the Xperia Z2 some wireless charging compatibility, for a bit of a price.
