Sony SmartWatch Review

Sony SmartWatch Review

Sony's first attempt at a smart watch, the Sony Ericsson LiveView, promised plenty and delivered disappointment, and so the company has returned with the Sony SmartWatch. The concept is the same - put a tiny sub-display on your wrist, so that you can monitor your phone's notifications from afar - but the hardware has received a welcome boost, with an OLED touchscreen promising more intuitive navigation. Is the SmartWatch the gadget your wrist has been waiting for? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Sony Xperia S Review

Sony Xperia S Review

The Sony Xperia S is something of a smartphone stepchild: the first smartphone to bear Sony's sole brand in recent years, but developed under the loving care of the Sony Ericsson partnership the Japanese company bought itself out of. It certainly ticks a lot of the right boxes - 720p HD display, high-resolution 12.1-megapixel camera and some reasonably distinctive design - but we've seen our fair share of Android handsets over-promise and under-deliver. So, hangover from the past or a sign of things to come? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Sony Xperia U caught with oversized S

Sony's mini-Xperia has leaked, the dinky 3.5-inch dual-core previously known as the ST25i but tipped to launch as the Sony Xperia U. Running Android on a 1GHz processor with a WVGA display and 5-megapixel camera, the Xperia U doesn't exactly deliver hyperbole like the Xperia S it's shown next to in the photos HDBlog unearthed, but could be a welcome alternative for those that don't want to give over an entire pocket to an oversized smartphone.

Sony’s Four-Screen Strategy Needs Vita OS

Sony’s Four-Screen Strategy Needs Vita OS

Changes are afoot at Sony: new CEO, new PS Vita on the market, and a new opportunity to demonstrate the company can deliver on its "four-screen" strategy of convergence. Until now, that strategy has been a vague ambition to sell users a Sony TV, phone, tablet and PC. Now, though, with the PS Vita finally reaching US buyers, part of Sony's overall gameplan is starting to become clear. Vita OS is the "thin edge of the wedge" on gaming hardware, Yoshio Matsumoto, director of business at SCE, confirmed last week. Meanwhile, Sony Ericsson is no more, and Sony has sole control of the rudder: the company promised nothing but smartphones for 2012, but that doesn't mean Sony won't sacrifice Android in favor of a platform - and an ecosystem - that it alone controls.

AT&T Sony Xperia Ion LTE up for pre-order

Earlier this month we got a chance to peek at one of Sony Ericsson's newest hero devices, the Xperia Ion, complete with AT&T LTE speeds to back up its collection of top of the line specifications in a smartphone body. What we're seeing here is that the device will cost you something like $570 in pre-order dollars to get the whole device off-contract.
