Sony patent surfaces with odd tablet/Wii U style controller art

Sony patent surfaces with odd tablet/Wii U style controller art

If you think back when the current consoles like the Nintendo Wii and Sony PS3 hit the market, Sony was left playing catch-up and tacked on a rarely used motion control feature of the PS3 to try and match what the Wii had. If the sketches that are included new Sony patent that surfaced are any indication, Sony isn't ready to let the new Wii U rocking controllers with little LCD screens get the better of it this time around.

Kaz Hirai: User experience, not hardware, will turn Sony around

Sony is to become a leaner, swifter, less regimented organization, new CEO and President Kaz Hirai has promised, cutting through the swathes of structure that have seen projects delayed and efforts duplicated. Freshly elevated this week, Hirai's first challenge was to weather the storm of a worse-than-expected fiscal Q3 2011 report; his next, the WSJ reports, is persuading the final stubborn hold-outs at Sony that "if we don't turn this around, we could be sitting in some serious trouble."

Sony Just Bought Its Future

Sony Just Bought Its Future

Sony, with a $1.47bn check, just bought back its destiny. In agreeing to buy out Ericsson's 50-percent stake in the Sony Ericsson smartphone partnership, the Japanese company brings to an end a decade of collaboration; more importantly, though, it buys the opportunity for Sony to come up to speed with its rivals and - if it leverages its strengths correctly - overtake Samsung, LG and even Apple in the consumer electronics market. "We can more rapidly and more widely offer consumers smartphones, laptops, tablets and televisions" CEO Howard Stringer promised in the announcement, "that seamlessly connect with one another and open up new worlds of online entertainment." Big words, but Sony is one of the few companies that could ever deliver on them.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini pro Review

Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini pro Review

Take a cursory glance at the smartphone market and you'd be forgiven for assuming bigger always means better. Android smartphones are already available with vast screens, rumors suggest the iPhone 5 will introduce a larger display, and Windows Phone has just seen its first uber-panel with the 4.7-inch HTC Titan. Not everyone wants to fill their pocket with handset, however, and for them the Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini pro could tick more than a few boxes. Compact and yet still offering a full physical keyboard, Sony Ericsson's dinky device reckons it offers the best of both worlds, but can it live up to the billing? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Sony Tablet S Review

Sony Tablet S Review

It's been some time since Sony had a tablet on the market. Times have changed since the VAIO UX's day, though, and where once tablets were niche devices, now they're making headway into our living rooms. The Sony Tablet S is the first model of the company's new strategy, packing Android Honeycomb into a hardware design that's a little more interesting than many rivals have managed. Late to the game against the iPad, though, has the Tablet S' tardiness undermined its potential? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
