Xperia XA1 also goes into pre-order in the UK

Xperia XA1 also goes into pre-order in the UK

On the heels of Sony kicking off the pre-order period for the Xperia XZ Premium in the UK, retailer Clove has also put up the pre-sale pages for the Xperia XA1. The smallest and least “equipped” of the four Xperia smartphones announced at MWC 2017, the Xperia XA1 is, by no means, an underdog. The specs definitely match many of the mid-range models this time of year but, this time, it appears that Sony may have gotten its pricing right.

PlayStation 4 games coming to PlayStation Now later this year

PlayStation 4 games coming to PlayStation Now later this year

PlayStation Now is going to get a major boost in value later this year, as Sony announced today that it will soon add PS4 games to the PS Now lineup. That's pretty huge news, as PS Now is currently exclusive to PlayStation 3 titles.

Continuing that theme of being an early bird, Sony has started pre-orders for the Xperia XZ Premium in the UK, giving a glimpse of how much it will cost you when it actually ships in 3 months.

Jolla plans to put Sailfish OS on Sony Xperia phones

Jolla plans to put Sailfish OS on Sony Xperia phones

Jolla isn’t dead, or at least that’s the sentiment it’s trying to air at MWC 2017. The Finnish company, rising from the ashes of the old Nokia, may no longer be making and selling devices, but it’s also doing more than just licensing its Sailfish OS. At the world’s biggest mobile event, Jolla announced that it will be officially supporting Sony’s Xperia smartphones, at least those under its Open Devices Program, potentially expanding the number of Sailfish OS users in one go.

PlayStation VR sold 915,000 units, surprises even Sony

PlayStation VR sold 915,000 units, surprises even Sony

It’s both amusing and also telling that Sony itself was caught by surprise that its PS VR system did well after all. Although it was definitely singing the virtual reality tune, Sony’s actions spoke louder than its words. Its rollout of the PS VR was more conservative compared to the likes of the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. It’s caution, however, may have been unwarranted, as it is close to reaching its 1 million sales goal with 2 months to spare.

Xperia XA1: low price, high-end camera, small display

An extremely odd combination of elements has been presented this week with the Sony Xperia XA1.

With a 24mm wide-angle F2.0 lens and a high-quality body to it, this smartphone comes with a surprisingly inexpensive price tag at $300 USD.

Sony’s new SF-G memory cards claimed to be world’s fastest

We are living in a 4K age, with TVs, monitors, and even some smartphones capable of display such high-resolution content and cameras, and, yes, smartphones being able to create hi-res images and videos. The bottleneck, however, is the intermediate holding place for 4K content captured by cameras. In other words, memory cards.
