According to sources to DigiTimes, Sony will be launching a 12-inch tablet in quarter 1 of next year. Several other vendors are also developing large-size tablets for launch in the first or second quarters, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers. The sources say that Sony’s tablet will be high-end and come with a stylus.
Large-screen tablets are all the rage these days, with Samsung releasing its 10.1-inch Pro series earlier this year, and Microsoft releasing its Surface Pro 3.
The Sony SmartWatch 3 is finally available for pre-order, but from only one place. And that place is quite surprising. If you want to be the first to get your hands on Sony’s first Android Wear smartwatch, you will have to order it through Verizon Wireless.
They are taking pre-orders for it now for $249. Shipments start on October 30. The Sony SmartWatch is the only Android Wear smartwatch with a built in GPS so it can take advantage of the new features that Google officially announced today. On top of that, it has the best ambient display in the business.
The Galaxy Note 4 is no slouch in any area. The phone is an absolute beast and one of the standout features is the 16-megapixel camera. Much of the time, hardware manufacturers go with components supplied by competitors. That is exactly the case with the Galaxy Note 4′s camera sensor. It is the IMX240 camera sensor from Sony. This is a departure from Samsung’s ISOCELL camera sensor that was used with the Galaxy S 5. It is possible that Samsung wants to leave all of its in-house parts for its true flagship phone.

Sony’s latest slate, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, is now available to pre-order in the United States from both the manufacturer’s online portal and from any of its nationwide bricks-and-mortar stores.
According to the listing page, the unit will be available for shipping from Sunday, November 2 and will set you back a whopping $499.99, which, I’m pretty sure you’ll agree, is an awful lot to pay for a 32GB, 8-inch, mid-range device.
Back in September, Sony announced PS4 Remote Play — a revolutionary new feature which equips users with the facility to take a PlayStation 4 controller and stream games from their console to an Xperia smartphone or tablet that supports the service.
At the time, the Japanese company revealed that the application would be an exclusive to the Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact and Z3 Tablet Compact. But now, thanks to a blunder on the ‘Xperia Lounge’ app, it appears that Remote Play will be coming to the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet after all, when the app launches next month.
Hit the break below to see the slip-up in all its glory.
Google has just listed the Sony SmartWatch 3 on the Play Store. Unfortunately, the device isn’t available just yet, it’s catalogued only as “coming soon,” but we do know that it will have a $249 price tag when it eventually displays ‘add to basket’.
Not so long that the newly announced Xperia Z3 has lost any if its newness yet are we seeing information leaked regarding the Z4. Now before you groan and roll your eyes about seeing the Z4 in six months, know that Sony is looking to somewhat future proof its next flagship, at least if this tipster is correct.
Google unveiled Android Lollipop yesterday, so now we’re seeing device manufacturers clarify when they plan on updating their devices to the latest version of Android. Fortunately for owners of Sony devices, it looks like several devices will see the update at some point in the future.
Sony has stated that the entire premium Xperia Z lineup will be getting the Android 5.0 update. This includes the Xperia Z, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3, and all of their variants.
Since Sony announced the Xperia Z3 Compact, a smaller but equally powerful companion to their current flagship (the Xperia Z3), consumers have been patiently waiting for the device to become available in the US. Finally, the Z3 Compact is available to order from Sony’s website, though it is currently backordered. Though its no surprise that it finally made its way to the US, what is surprising is customers with a working .edu email address will recieve a substantial discount on the devices full price of $529, instead paying only $477.
Stewart Jordan, the cofounder of Peek — a portable eye exam kit — was almost diagnosed as being blind and without treatment and contact lenses would most certainly be that way today. As such, Stewart is using Peek, a set of apps loaded onto smartphones and a clip-on adapter, to help ophthalmologists with diagnosing eye conditions around the world. The newest smartphone to be apart of this process is the new Xperia Z3.
