After announcing the Sony SmartBand at MWC 2014 this week, Sony has wasted no time in starting the retail blitz to get the devices into the hands of buyers. On the Sony Mobile Store, the device has already shown up for pre-order for £79.99 ($134 USD) in the U.K. and €99 ($136 USD) for other European markets. Although, Sony indicated the devices would be available in a variety of colors, thus far black appears to be the only choice available for early adopters that want to be the first to get the devices onto their wrists.

The first units of the Sony SmartBand destined for European markets and the U.K. are expected to be delivered in early April. That will give buyers an opportunity to spend some time with the Lifelog application prior to having the device in hand as Sony says the app should be available in Google Play sometime in March.

LG G Flex
Whether or not you’re into the whole curved display trend, it’s definitely up and coming, and will continue to grow in the near future.

The device should hit all of these markets by the end of February. Expect more LG devices to start coming to Europe after their initial launches in Asia and the United States— it’s a growing market and the manufacturers are starting to recognize that.

Motorola hosting January 14th event in London, possibly to unveil European Moto X

When Motorola announced the Moto X, they said that they were working on eventually bringing the Moto X to European countries. Well, that still hasn’t happened, but Motorola has scheduled an event for January 14th in London to “welcome a new addition to the European Motorola family of products.” Since the Moto G is available in European countries, it would make sense for Motorola to finally offer their flagship device in countries besides the US. Obviously there’s still the issue of handling MotoMaker in other countries, but I think Motorola and Google have something up their sleeve if they plan on making an entire event out of it, as opposed to just announcing something at CES.

Any guesses on what the announcement will be?

oppo_n1_release_date

OPPO announced late yesterday that the OPPO N1 will be available for purchase beginning December 10th in the US and at least some European countries. This comes approximately one month after the device went on sale in China.  Along with the release date, they are also indicating the device will sell for $599 USD or €449. When the OPPO N1 was released in China, only 10,000 units were available. OPPO has not said anything about expected demand or how many units will be available. The OPPO N1, featuring a 5.9-inch screen and a rotating 13MP camera, will probably find most of its demand coming from buyers who are interested in getting a device pre-loaded with the CyanogenMod verson of Android. OPPO says the device will be available with CyanogenMod, Android, or both when it hits the market.

At present, OPPO’s web site lists their own online store and Amazon as sources for the OPPO N1 in the U.S.

HTC’s rollout of Android 4.3 for their HTC One customers continues to spread around the globe with users in some European countries now reporting they are being notified to grab the OTA update. Unlike users on some carriers in the U.S., like those on T-Mobile that started to see the update this week, the update rolling out in Europe includes HTC’s Sense 5.5 interface, an upgrade from Sense 5.0. That change will bring users some new features for BlinkFeed and more search support for Google+ and RSS feeds, including the ability to turn off BlinkFeed.

Thus far the update appears to have hit some Eastern European markets and Russia according to @LlabTooFeR and reports indicate some Nordic countries are receiving the update. Meanwhile, HTC UK is estimating three to five more weeks before British customers receive the new update.
