Sony recently introduced a brand new smartphone to its home country, the Sony Xperia J1 Compact. The device is a high-end Android smartphone dressed in a metal body, and is the company’s first SIM-free Xperia smartphone in Japan.
Finally, after waiting for months, it looks like Sony is ready with its Android 5.0 Lollipop for its current flagship smartphones – the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact. Earlier today, the Japanese company wrote a blog post saying that the Lollipop for both devices are currently being rolled out.
Sony has just launched the Walkman NW-ZX2 in Malaysia. Unveiled back at CES 2015, this particular device actually runs on Android 4.2; but this is no smartphone. In fact, it is a high-resolution portable audio player. Bearing the Walkman moniker, the ZX2 is mostly aimed at audiophiles who enjoy good music quality on the go.
That was quick, it’s been only a month since Sony took the curtains off its Sony Xperia E4, a lower mid-range Android smartphone, and it’s already available here in Malaysia.
Unveiled alongside the new Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet is the Xperia M4 Aqua, an upper mid-range smartphone that looks remarkably similar to the Xperia Z3, the company’s current flagship. The M4 Aqua may not be the successor to the Xperia Z3, but it does carry some of the Z3’s traits.
It looks like Sony will not be announcing a flagship smartphone at MWC 2015 but don’t be disappointed. The company has instead opted to announced its next flagship full-sized tablet, the Xperia Z4 tablet.
Sony has posted on its Twitter page mentioning that it will be unveiling something “slimmer, lighter and brighter” on the 2nd of March 2015, which is when MWC 2015 will be happening. More likely than not, the company is foreshadowing the unveiling of the Xperia Z4 Tablet that has been accidentally revealed earlier this week.
Sony has accidentally (or not) revealed its upcoming Xperia Z4 Tablet. The new tablet first appeared on the company’s Xperia Lounge application before it was swiftly removed. Fortunately, someone managed to catch a screenshot of the device before it was pulled from the app, which confirms the tablet’s existence.
Sony is looking to restructure itself as the company looks to increasing operating profit by 25 times by 2018, and the biggest sacrifice appears to be the underperforming smartphone division. This follows multiple rounds of downsizing, spinning off the television division into a wholly owned subsidiary, and selling the Vaio laptop brand.
Sony will be releasing a new microSDXC card in the Japanese market. This memory card will feature “premium sound”, something that even Sony isn’t too sure about. In fact, the company has said that it is not sure who will be buying these microSDXC cards, but it is sure that someone will want it.
If you have been wanting to grab yourself a PlayStation 4, Sony’s new Battlefield Hardline bundle for the console might just pique your interest. To make things even more interesting, the Deluxe Edition of the game will be included in the bundle instead of a standard edition.

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that it will be partnering with Spotify to bring PlayStation Music to users. This means that the current Music Unlimited service will go away, but the prospect of having Spotify on the PlayStation 4 is an exciting one.
Sony is reducing the size of its smartphone division yet again. Some 1,000 jobs are set to be cut, most of which will be from Europe and China. There is no explanation on why this is happening, although it probably has something to do with the lackluster mobile sales.

Sony may look like they’re doing really well especially in the mobile phone business, but it looks like it’s not good enough and things might take a turn for the worst.
