The Sony Xperia Z hit the market back in January, and with four million sales under its belt has been one of the most successful Android phones of the year, so Sony Mobile has certainly got off to a good start in 2013.
The Sony Xperia Z is by far the most impressive offering to date from the Japanese manufacturer. The device packs plenty of high-end features, ranging from a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 13.1 megapixel camera and Android Jellybean operating system, along with an outstanding display which measures 5 inches and boasts a resolution of 1080p. Furthermore, the handset is set apart from the competition thanks to its IP55 an IP57 certifications, meaning that the handset is dust proof and waterproof.
Despite increasingly impressive competition, it seems likely that the Xperia Z will remain one of the most popular smartphones throughout the year. However, Android Authority has recently revealed that Sony appears to be gearing up for the launch of its next flagship phone.Read more

Mobile retailer Clove has confirmed that the Sony Xperia E is coming to the UK, offering buyers a chance to pre-order the cut-price Android-based smartphone ahead of its launch early next week.
Designed along the same overall theme as the high-end Xperia Z, Sony’s Xperia E is designed for smaller pockets in more ways than one. The 5in Full HD 1,080×1,920 display of the Xperia Z gives way to a small 3.5in 480×320 display on the Xperia E, marking the device out as sitting firmly at the bottom of Sony’s Xperia device family – a positioning confirmed by the presence of a single-core 1GHz processor and just 512MB of RAM behind the display.
Storage, too, is at the very bottom of what a buyer would expect from a smartphone, offering just 4GB of internal capacity – although, in a move that is becoming worryingly rare at the higher end of the smartphone market, Sony has at least included a micro-SD card slot that can expand the storage capacity of the handset by up to 32GB.Read more

The Sony Xperia Z is easily one of the best smartphones of 2013, and it may finally make it to the U.S. and on to T-Mobile where shoppers can pick it up on a new UNcarrier plan.
Launched at CES 2013, the Sony Xperia Z took home Gotta Be Mobile’s Best Smartphone of CES award thanks to the design, durability and great features, but since January there are not many Xperia Z devices in the U.S. Instead the Sony Xperia Z is spending most of its time on carriers in the UK and other countries, but that may soon change.
A T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z release appears to be on the way with alleged photos of a T-Mobile branded Sony Xperia Z unit appeared in the early hours of this week. The photos show the back and front of a Sony Xperia Z with a T-Mobile logo on the lower half of the back and a Sony logo on the front.Read more
