Your old Sony non-Xperia Z phones may not be getting the sweetness of Lollipop but there's a new Xperia C phone that will run Android 5.0 out of the box already. Meet the Sony Xperia C4--the latest smartphone targeted for the selfie generation.

You can now pre-order the Sony Smart Bluetooth speaker

Your wish for your own personal almost robot is one step closer to coming true. We told you about Sony's Smart Bluetooth Speaker BSP60 a few months ago and how the egg-like device can actually help you keep up with your digital life with just a simple command of "Okay speaker." Finally, the tiny smart speaker is available for pre-order on the Xperia website, and you can also bundle it with the SmartBand Talk SWR30 for a limited time offer.

Android 5.0.2 rolls out for Sony Xperia Z2, Z3

While more Motorola phones are getting Android 5.1 already, Sony's Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3 are still being prepped for Android 5.0.2. That's just a slight difference and at least, the Xperia Z phones are getting a taste of Lollipop unlike others not totally getting the new Android version. Sony Xperia Z2's build number is known as 23.1.A.1.28 which rolled out to the model only yesterday. Next Xperia models to receive the same software update include the Xperia Z3, Z3 Tablet Compact, Z3 Compact, and the Xperia Z2 Tablet.

Root access gained for T-Mobile Xperia Z3, Verizon Xperia Z3v

We’ve talked about Sony’s locked bootloaders recently, and we feel the consumers who can totally relate with that are Sony Xperia device users in the United States. It doesn’t matter what carrier you get it from, it will most likely have a locked bootloader, because life just sucks like that. We kid, of course – it’s just more difficult for US Xperia users, that is a fact. But there just might be good news at the jump.

Sony Xperia Z might get Lollipop starting next week

While the Android 5.0 Lollipop may have rolled out for Sony devices like the Xperia Z3 Dual, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact, and Xperia Z Ultra, the original Xperia Z owners seem to still be waiting in vain. But if we are to believe a tweet from the OEM, albeit it's from their office in the Philippines, it looks like the major update will finally arrive some time next week.

Special bootloaders from Sony to allow recovery access

If there’s probably just one thing you’d hate about owning a Sony Xperia device, it’s probably the bootloaders that prohibit booting into a recovery partition. Make no mistake about it, Sony Xperia devices are known for their aesthetic and chic minimalist design, and their premium hardware. But tweaking the software to run the custom ROM you want is always a huge headache.

Sony’s Xperia Z4 may be introduced as the Z3+ to the world

When Sony was rumored to be releasing a new flagship this year, a lot of people were pretty excited, since the current one, the Xperia Z3 has been pretty well received. But when they finally unveiled in Japan the Xperia Z4 and its specs, they received a lot of flak for it since it was just basically a slightly amped up version of the Z3. If a "leaked" white paper is to be believed, it looks like the international release will change the name to the Xperia Z3+.

T-Mobile relists the Sony Xperia Z3 on website

Earlier this April, T-Mobile discontinued its Sony Xperia Z3 deal because we thought it could be paving the way for the Sony Xperia Z4 which was already unveiled a week ago. The Xperia Z3 isn't exactly a bestseller but we were left wondering why only after six months after its official launch on the network, T-Mobile removed the model from its current lineup. But good news to those who want a Z3, T-Mobile is selling the phone and the black model is listed once again.
