Android 5.1 Lollipop rolls out to Sony Xperia Z2, Z3

If you own a Sony Xperia Z2 or Z3 series phone or tablet, we’ve got some good news coming your way. Sony just announced that they are rolling out the Android 5.1 Lollipop update that you guys have been expecting for a while now. Along with the new firmware, of course, are new goodies and features for everybody.

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.

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.

Android 5.0 Lollipop coming to Xperia Z2, Z3 really soon

While other flagship devices have been enjoying their updated devices running on Android 5.0 Lollipop, some still have not benefited from Google's gradual roll-out of their latest major update. Owners of Sony's Xperia Z2 and Z3 are among those who are waiting, but it looks like the wait is almost over, as Sony is expected to bring the Lollipop magic sometime this month, at least for its flagship device, and maybe the older one as well. Well, that is, if you're living in Australia.

MultiROM now available for Sony Xperia Z2, Z3

The world of multiboot goodness keeps growing, as MultiROM – the project that seeks to allow devices to boot into different versions of Android whenever the user feel like it – now adds support for the high-end Sony Xperia devices, the Xperia Z2 and Z3. MultiROM has been available in other Sony devices for some time now, but it’s just now that users of the Xperia Z2 and Z3 will actually get a taste of this cool project.

New devices supported by Chromecast for more streaming joy

As the new devices for 2014 roll in, a lot of the older devices and standards have had to adjust and tweak themselves to play nice with the current crop of smartphones, phablets, and tablets. One of those is Chromecast, Google’s streaming-slash-screen casting dongle that now allows more gadgets to connect to it for more big-screen streaming goodness.

Xperia Z2, Z2 Tablet upgrade: PS4 remote, camera apps and more

With all the excitement about Sony's new flagship, the Xperia Z3, owners of the previous flagship Xperia Z2, as well as the Z2 Tablet should be forgiven for thinking that the OEM has already forgotten about them. Apparently, the folks over at Sony were working hard on bringing a major software upgrade, and instead of releasing it next year, they've decided to go ahead and give their users an early Christmas gift. New features include the much talked about PS4 Remote Play as well as the social camera apps exclusive for Sony Xperia users.

Sony PS4 Remote Play coming to Xperia Z2, Z2 Tablet

Those who’ve been dreaming of having PlayStation 4 Remote Play on their Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablets can finally sleep at because the previously exclusive feature on the Z3 series is coming to other Xperia models. No formal announcement from Sony has been made yet but there’s a reference over at an Xperia Loung app page saying the functionality will be available on the Z2 and Z2 tablet starting November 2014.

Sony adds Xperia Z1, Z2 to AOSP for Xperia, updates Xperia Z

While Sony might arguably be not the top Android seller in the world, the OEM is popular for trying to do right by its users, especially when it comes to the Android community, especially modders and custom ROM makers. Aside from providing official instructions, and warnings, for unlocking bootloaders, it also provides kernel sources and configurations on the open source GitHub repository to be used by those who want to create their own Android version of its devices. Today, those sources welcome three devices to the fold.

Android Lollipop is coming to all Sony Xperia Z devices

Boo yah! Sony just dropped a big one on us today as they have announced what seems to be a roadmap for future software releases on their premium Xperia Z series. We’ve all heard of Android Lollipop (who hasn’t?), and we’ve all seen what it can do – the minimalist Material Design, the new features. That’s one thing. But it is a whole other thing – and exciting, at that – to declare that a whole series of your premium phones is getting it.
