Sony Xperia Z, ZL, ZR, and Tablet Z will get Android 4.4 KitKat updates in May

About a month ago, Sony released Android 4.4 KitKat updates for the Xperia Z1, Xperia Z Ultra, and Xperia Z1 Compact, while at the same time promising more updates to come in the second quarter of this year. That particular quarter started this month and ends in June, and the devices in question were the Xperia Z, ZL, ZR, and Tablet Z. All of these were slated to get their updates in mid-Q2, which should mean May. And indeed it looks...

Sony Xperia Z2 officially launches in the UK on May 1, but some retailers will have it next week

Sony announced the Xperia Z2 back in February, but so far the company’s newest flagship has only had a very limited release. The Xperia Z2 has been plagued by little delay after little delay, and it’s only going to be out in the UK on May 1. That’s still quite a long way off, but if you live in the UK and desperately want one, there is apparently something you can do to get it quicker. Much quicker. As soon as next...

Sony Xperia SP won’t be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat

If you own a Sony Xperia SP and were hopeful that it would ever get officially updated to Android 4.4 KitKat, here’s some bad news for you. According to a Sony rep, that simply won’t happen. This comes despite Sony still claiming, on the SP’s product page, that it’s evaluating the possibility of an update to the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system. But apparently the company has already...

Sony Xperia M Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update now rolling out

The Sony Xperia M was launched last year running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and now it’s been bumped up to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. It’s not the biggest of updates, that’s for sure, but it’s an update nevertheless – something which should be cherished when we’re talking about a midrange smartphone, since those don’t usually get updates of any kind. The Android 4.3 update for the Xperia M has...

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and Xperia E1 now available in the UK

If you’re in the UK and a fan of Sony’s mobile stuff, you may be happy to know that both the Xperia Z2 Tablet and the Xperia E1 smartphone are now in stock over there. The Xperia Z2 Tablet is a high-end offering that was announced at MWC alongside the Xperia Z2 handset, and it’s been up for pre-order for around a month now. That changed today, when it’s finally listed as being in stock by Sony’s own...

Sony Xperia M2 pre-orders now live in the UK, priced from £224.98, shipping on April 30 or later

On the first day of MWC last month, Sony unveiled three new devices, yet two of those (the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet) have so far gotten most of the attention. Perhaps that’s understandable, since they are flagship offerings after all, but the Xperia M2 that was introduced alongside them is interesting too. It’s a midranger, which means it could sell even better than those two. So far we’ve seen it priced in...

Sony Xperia Z2 gets a price hike in Europe

It’s not even available to buy yet, but the Sony Xperia Z2 has already received a price increase in Europe. Or, to be more specific, in Germany. Over there, the official recommended sales price for the Xperia Z2 used to be €599, but starting today that’s gone up to a whopping €679. That’s clearly on the high side compared to any Android-running flagship smartphone released in recent years, but it may not be that...

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra won’t be sold in the UK SIM-free

It may be headed to T-Mobile in the USA, but the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra apparently won’t be making its way to the UK – or at least you won’t be able to find it over there in SIM-free and unlocked form. As many people in the UK like to get their smartphones without contracts tied to a particular operator, this won’t be good news for those who’ve had their eyes on the T2 Ultra. It was announced in mid-January...

This has now been confirmed by Sony itself, as the company took to its official blog to discuss the latest regarding software updates for its devices. The rollout for the Z Ultra will now go global. The Xperia Z1 and the Xperia Z1 Compact are also going to be receiving the KitKat update...

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra on its way to T-Mobile

Sony announced the Xperia T2 Ultra in January as its first midrange phablet. During the unveiling, the company mentioned that this particular device would only be launched in certain regions, such as China, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific rim. So if you’re located elsewhere and wanted to buy one of these, you were left to go to unofficial suppliers. That may be changing, though, for it looks like the Xperia T2 Ultra...
