BVA has caught sight of Sony’s latest smartphones that will hit the market sometime in the second quarter, and they shouldn’t disappoint. The Xperia SP and Xperia L are Sony’s affordable alternatives to their other phones currently available to purchase.
While these two devices do not come with touchless operation or eye tracking they do come with a design feature that is called “transparent element” which is a light near the bottom of the phone that lights up different colors for each alert (phone call, text, email, ect.). Another great addition is the HDR video that the L phone can take. Both phones also can sync with Sony’s Bravia line of television which gives it an added perk.
Sony has not stated the price for these phones but time will tell just how afforadable they will be.
Sony is releasing a new Android based tablet named the Xperia Tablet Z. It was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress just recently and it will be available to purchase in May. It sounds like it packs a lot of punch considering it is the thinnest 10.1″ tablet around.
I am partial to Sony camera’s and I am pleased to see them trasfer some of that technology over to the new tablet. The front facing camera only sports a 2 megapixal lens but the rear camera has an 8. The full HD display comes standard with a 192x1200p along with Reality Display with BRAVIA Engine 2.
Something that caught my eye is the fact that they claim the tablet is waterproof. According to Sony the Z can be placed in up to a meter of water for 30 minutes and it will still be working when you pull it out.
