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 and Neo officially updated to ICS

"Enough with the betas already," said the international hardware giant, "they're ready for the real thing." Xperia Blog reports that Sony is rolling out the final version of its Ice Cream Sandwich update for its Xperia Arc and Xperia Neo phones, free for the asking for anyone who prefers up-to-date software. Sony had already updated the Arc S, Neo V, Ray and the Tablet S. The rest of the 2011 Xperia line, with the notable and disappointing exception of the Xperia PLAY, will be updated later.

Sony Ericsson Announces Qriocity Video Service for Xperia Devices

Today the good folks at Sony Ericsson have let the world know that a brand new video service for Xperia phones will be launching starting on August 1st, 2011. This service will allow users to either buy or rent movies and television shows, this service complimenting the mobile brand's recently announced cloud based digital music service "Music Unlimited." The video service Qriocity will initially be pushed to Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro in nine markets with localization of content and movies - that means if you're in Germany, you probably won't get the movie Purple Rain. Or maybe you love Prince over there too, I don't know.

DropBox to come Pre-installed on Sony Ericsson Phones

DropBox has recently announced they have partnered with Sony Ericsson and will be coming pre-installed on future devices from Sony.

They do mention they are working on it for Verizon, but future releases for those devices will have it.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Rooted already

Ever since Sony announced that they would be having unlocked bootloaders I'm sure you have all been happily waiting for the new and exciting phones they have coming out to hit the shelves. The Xperia Play, and the Arc look sweet. Today I have some news for you, looks like the Xperia Arc has already been rooted.

Xperia Arc used to remotely drive a car

Remember the scene in Tomorrow Never Dies where James Bond is being chased by the bad guys and he drives his rental car remotely from the back seat with his cellphone? Great idea, great scene, completely ridiculous ... or is it? Well, Sony wanted to see just how responsive the Exmor sensors and the Bravia Engine displays of the Xperia Arc smartphones. So, they used them to drive a car with no other means of seeing outside. The result is a rather wild video.

New Xperia Neo images leak

New images have leaked for Sony Ericsson's XPeria Neo and it looks to be a pretty nice Android headset. As highlighted in a recent Neo Hands on that popped up a few days ago, the Neo comes stacked with a 1Ghz Qualcomm processor, 4 inch LED backlit touchscreen, 512 MB RAM and the same Adreno 205 GPU as the Xperia Play.  Additionally, the Neo will use a large 8 MP camera with LED flash and will also record HD video in 720p, as well a a front facing 2 MP camera for video chat.

XPERIA Play Displays Giant Adjustable Boxes for Testing

An anonymous tipster presenting an image to Dutch site All About Phones has revealed some of the display techniques that will more than likely be used to show off the XPERIA Play once its in stores such as Best Buy and T-Mobile. These chest-height boxes will hold anywhere from 1 to 3 devices in either portrait or landscape mode, held down tight or with a security cord so that consumers might test the PlayStation phone out in the comfort of their own special square.

Xperia Neo Hands on with Gareth Beavis

Someone has their hands on a brand new Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo and their name is Gareth Beavis of Tech Radar. This is one of several XPERIA phones coming out in the near future from Sony Ericsson, two more being the XPERIA Arc and XPERIA Play (aka PlayStation phone.) Is a lineup of some giant magnitude like the team they've got coming out soon enough to keep Sony Ericsson in the green with Android fans?
