Sony Xperia XZ Premium now available in stunning Red for the US

With the arrival of new late 2017 flagships, it seems almost too easy to forget those that came a bit earlier. Especially when those early 2017 flagships aren’t as flashy as the new ones. As if to remind US buyers of just months old phones, Sony has somewhat silently made available a new Xperia XZ Premium variant in the US that is at least eye-catching in its color.

Sony Android TVs finally get Google Assistant integration

Sony Android TVs finally get Google Assistant integration

Once upon a time, Google fans and believers dreamed of a day when they could buy a Google TV from an electronics store and enjoy the full breadth of Google services from the comfort of their couch.

The “lean back” version of Android allowed Google to penetrate all kinds of entertainment devices, from multimedia boxes to full smart TVs, like these ones from Sony. And since they’re based on the same Android platform, they can also get similar features, like Google Assistant, which is now making its way to recent Sony Android TV models.

Showing its PlayStation App some love, Sony has announced a revamped interface for the smartphone app while also noting a loss of one functionality.

Sony explains Android update process in an infographic

Sony explains Android update process in an infographic

For end users, Android software updates have become more an arcane subject than they’re supposed to be. They hear of some monthly security or, better yet, a new Android version and often expect those to appear on their devices sooner or later.
