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.

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.

The Sony XPERIA S is the second smartphone released by the manufacture, alongside the XPERIA Ion LTE. Though this version doesn't have 4G LTE, it takes advantage of HSPA+ for up to 21MBps speeds.

Sony Ericsson Xperia mystery device teased for CES 2012

Sony Ericsson Xperia mystery device teased for CES 2012

This week we're seeing Sony Ericsson teasing what's more than likely an Android device under a fancy white sheet saying it's Something Big and that it'll be revealed next week - this setting it precisely in line with CES 2012. We'll be there, of course, to see it pop out of the sheet, and you'll be the first to know here at SlashGear, but let's do a bit of thinking on what it might be now: a phone? Perhaps a brand new tablet? More than likely it'll have something to do with the gigantic photos that leaked last week.
