Mystery Sony device benchmarked, Ice Cream Sandwich and Tegra 3 onboard


So what does the freshly energized Sony have up its sleeve for Android fans in 2012, well the Sony V150 for starters but just what exactly is it? Android GPU benchmarking tool, NenaMark has an interesting benchmark result on its website that’s sure to get the tech world talking. The table key tells us that the V150 is a 1.4GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 device with a 1280 x 752 display and Android Ice Cream Sandwich on board. Even more interesting is the impressive 59.70 score which positions the V150 well ahead of the 42.89 score achieved by the Tablet S.

Sony Ericsson made a stuttering start to its Android push with mixed fortunes, the Xperia range of devices never really hit the same sales or critical acclaim as rival products from Samsung, HTC and Motorola in particular. With the buyout of Sony Ericsson complete and the birth of Sony Mobile Communications confirmed, the new setup is really pushing to ensure a turnaround in performance and perception on its Android devices. We certainly wouldn’t want to read too much into a single benchmark but the early signs are promising.

Check out the benchmark results below and let us know your thoughts on Sony’s bright new future in the comments.

Originally from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, I'm now living in the UK's second city, Birmingham. I've had a passion for gadgets from a very young age, it all started with my Commodore 64 at the tender age of 2 years old. I purchased my first mobile phone aged 17 and it was from there the obsession began. Having now gone through 33 phones in 13 years it's safe to say my passion for phones is alive and well! My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus as I'm a big fan of the pure Android experience. I've been working in the Banking industry for the past 10 years and I'm currently working in Human Resources for one of the World's largest Retail Banks. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and young family and when I'm not fiddling with phones and tablets I can be found playing football (soccer for you guys in the States!), watching Mixed Martial Arts, tinkering with cars or listening to music.
