Sony has always strayed from the competition with its mobile device design. They haven’t always hit the mark, but this writer at least admires their goal of differentiation by design. The Xperia Tablet S has a unique design built around a 9.4-inch screen, where one edge of the tablet is curved around itself, creating a distinct visual effect and adding a nice grip for one-handed use.
It is also quite thin, outside of the curved section, as just 0.35-inches with tapered edges to enhance the slimness. Android 4.0 and a quad-core Tegra 3 processor power the Xperia Tablet S, along with the usual bevy of tablet features like an 8MP back-illuminated camera, 16GB storage with SD card expansion (full-size, not mini), GPS, Bluetooth, wireless N, and the like.Read more

A recent leak reveals that Sony Mobile Communications–formerly Sony Ericsson–is planning a few Android smartphones for 2013 with a device codenamed Odin leading the pack. Details for these devices are scarce at this time, but it looks like Sony will still be putting a good fight in the smartphone war.
The leak obtained by Xperia Blog details three different device model numbers, the C605X, C160X, and C150X. The first device, the G605X will have three variants–C6052, C6053, and C6056–with each variant corresponding to a different region for specific HSPA+ and LTE radios for that region. That device is the flagship and currently has a codename of Odin, which will launch officially with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The C160X is a midrange device with a 1 GHz CPU and Adreno 200 graphics. The mid-range Xperia handset will debut with Android Ice Cream Sandwich and will be upgraded to Jelly Bean at a later date. The device will have a screen with a HVGA resolution, the same resolution that debuted on the very first Android phone, the HTC G1.Read more

When we’re on the go, we really can’t afford to carry around bulky equipment all the time; our pockets and bags can only hold so much. Sony agrees, which is why they’ve announced a new line of external batteries that are small and super thin. They’re the size of a regular smartphone and come in capacities from 3500 mAh to 7000 mAh.
The external batteries use Sony’s thin “laminate” technology, which involves laminating battery components together in order to cut down on weight and materials. It also results in super-thin batteries. The company’s 7000 mAh model will be just a half-inch thick, and will measure 2.8-inches by 5.1-inches, making it a perfect device to easily slip in and out of a pocket.
Sony is marketing these new external batteries as being roughly the same size as smartphones and tablets, making the two easier to store together. They’ll even have a smaller model that will hold 3500 mAh, as well as small cylinder-shaped 2000 mAh batteries. We’re not sure exactly what size the cylinder batteries will be, but you can be sure that they’ll be pretty small.Read more

At first glance Sony’s new Xperia Go handset looks svelte, sleek – and delicate. But as we spent some time with the Android handset we realized that it might just be one of the most durable smartphones in the market right now. Damage by dust and water seem to be a thing of the past with Sony’s new smartphone – at least in KYMs first experience.
Sony has built the Xperia Go to fit any pocket with ease. With a width of 9.8mm, it holds a 3.5-inch display in a slim body. The edges of the phone are curved and smooth, without a jagged feel. Bravia technology on the handset’s display ensures that one doesn’t have to squint to view it in sunlight. Buttons on the device are conveniently placed with home, back and menu below the screen, power on top and volume on the right. Read more

Necessity is the mother of invention. And Sony is a good example of that. Having suffered billions of dollars losses, these trying times called out for inventing products that stood apart from the rivals and made a formidable impression on the consumers.
Post Sony-Ericsson split, we saw the emergence of Sony Xperia S, a high-end, top notch device that oozed both oomph and strong specs. Understanding the need for catering to other segments of the market, we saw the Taiwanese company introduce Xperia P, a mid range smartphone and Xperia U – a low range smartphone to satisfy the carvings of the budget conscious consumers.
We got our hands on Xperia S’s, stylish brethren, Xperia P recently and boy were we impressed. Supporting similar aluminum unibody chassis like its expensive cousin, Xperia U brings onboard a premium stylish finish and that nice curved back that assures a comfortable grip. The transparent bottom panel and the lights for the buttons, further add to the style quotient. Read more
