Sony releases flash tool for Xperia devices

Sony has released a new flash tool for its Xperia devices. This tool will only work for Xperia devices with an unlocked boot loader. The purpose of the tool is to take devices that have a custom firmware installed and moving it back to official Sony software. Sony is calling this new software a beta, so that means it's not 100% finished.

Sony Xperia Arc S ROM ported to Galaxy Nexus

When considering Android modders and the projects they choose to devote themselves to, the question "Why?" often arises. And the answer, almost universally, is "why not?" Such is the case with GNexusTimeScape, a new ROM for the Galaxy Nexus from noted XDA member koaaN. The custom ROM takes the interface, apps and widgets from the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S - an older, smaller and considerably weaker phone - and puts them front and center on the Galaxy Nexus.

Sony offers official ICS Beta ROMs for Xperia Arc S, Neo V and Ray phones

Now that's more like it. After promising an Ice Cream Sandwich update to all 2011 Xperia phones, Sony is putting its money where its mouth is and offering early access to the beta software to the Xperia Arc S, Neo V and Ray. All three have an official Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, and anybody can download the software and install it at their leisure - though it's recommended for "advanced developers only". Sony offered a few alpha ROMs before, but I've never even heard of an Android beta program quite this ambitious. Bravo, Sony. Bravo.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc HD in the works with 720p display

Sony Ericsson is planning what we are hearing will be called the Xperia Arc HD with a brilliant 1280 x 720p display using their BRAVIA engine. Now we should probably just call them SONY since they bought out Ericsson's half recently. So, Sony is prepping a new 720p smartphone to add to their lineup. We've heard rumors of the Nozomi packing a 720p screen and possibly a 1.5 GHz dual-core, could this be the same phone?
