Today, Sony announced a new project that will allow Xperia device owners to create their own themes. The project, which is currently available in beta form, is called Theme Creator and hands users control of over three-hundred graphical system assets. These items include icons, buttons, colors, and assets.
Carrying on from unveiling the Xperia Z4 tablet at the MWC in Barcelona, Sony has taken the covers off of its Xperia M4 Aqua, a smartphone that offers front and rear cameras that are more than handy, along with OmniBalance design and a 64-bit Qualcomm processor. We have the specifications, gallery, video and press release after the break.
Today is the second day of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and after HTC and Samsung hogged the limelight yesterday, Sony has unveiled the Xperia Z4 tablet that boasts a 2K display and is only 6.1mm thick. We have the specifications, video, a gallery of images as well as the full press release just after the break.
Many of us have allowed our home PC’s to be used for the Folding@Home project that utilises the PC’s idle time to investigate the mechanisms of protein folding, aiding medical research into Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s diseases among others. Owners of Sony smartphones running Android 4.4 KitKat have previously been able to run the relevant Android app on their devices, and now Sony has updated the app to be compatible with Android 5.0 Lollipop as well. Perhaps even more importantly, even non-Sony smartphones can run the app thanks to this latest update.
A couple of days ago, Sony mistakenly or on purpose outed the Xperia Z4 tablet in their Xperia Lounge app. The immediate assumption was that we would see it at Mobile World Congress next week, and Sony has confirmed it.

Japanese manufacturer Sony has just made the Xperia E4g smartphone official carrying a budget price tag. When launched over the coming weeks, the smartphone will set customers back by just $146, which is an incredible price for an LTE offering.

While we wait for Samsung to make their 2015 flagship official on March 1st, we can still snoop around to try to figure out what’s going to be inside the Galaxy S 6 ahead of time. Originally, rumors pointed at the device using a 20 megapixel camera, but now it’s looking like Samsung will go with a 16 megapixel Sony IMX240 sensor.
We’ve all read about how Sony is struggling to turn market share into meaningful profits, with the possibility of leaving both the television and smartphone markets in the future being raised. Keeping that in mind, it should make complete sense that Sony has released a premium MicroSD card that is being sold in Japan for $160. Right?
