New leaked images of upcoming Xperia Z4 confirms earlier rumors

Sony has yet to officially announce that there will even be a new Xperia, but already rumors and leaks have been running around in the tech blogosphere. At first it was just renders, then came the supposed specs and details of the Xperia Z4. A few days ago, a "mystery Sony phone" seemed to have cleared the FCC. And now, alleged pictures of the upcoming smartphone have been leaked on a Russian tech website.

Sony buys OnLive, cloud gaming operations to end April 30

We haven't heard much about OnLive lately since that report about the first buyers of Galaxy Note 4 getting free access to OnLive gaming. That was back in October last year and looks like things haven't been pretty well for the cloud gaming company. OnLive used to be worth $1.8 billion. It was once estimated to be with that value but for some reasons, it got into a lot of debt so they had to lay off employees and were sold for a low price of $4.8 million in 2012.

Mystery Sony phone clears the FCC, could be the Xperia Z4

No doubt the Xperia Z4 will be Sony's next flagship Android phone. The company skipped the Mobile World Congress last month but we saw the Xperia M4 Aqua midrange phone and the Xperia Z4 Tablet. Despite all the hype, leaked specs, front panel leaks from a Chinese source, a Geekbench apperance, the front housing and more renders being leaked, and the very recent GFXBench sighting, we have yet to see the light of the Xperia Z4.

Sony Xperia E4g now available in China and the UK

Only two months after its introduction as sibling of the Xperia E4, the Sony Xperia E4g is now available. We mentioned back in February that the Android phone will be out this April and Sony kept its promise. Well, we still have no information when and where we can get this here in the United States but the model has already been listed by ePrice in China and Expansys in the UK. North America should be receiving the phone in the next few days or weeks.

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.
