Sony to use Android TV on all upcoming smart TVs

By on

Proprietary be damned. Sony’s new upcoming TVs will all run on Android TV, Google’s new TV platform.

A Stainless Steel Smartwatch: Sony’s SmartWatch 3 given more air-time, new style

By on

Smartwatch’s are cool, but they never actually look that nice. Even the Moto 360 is pretty gadget-y. But if CES has taught us one thing, it’s that this is all about to change. Sony’s new SmartWatch 3, which should be coming in 2015, has been detailed more through Sony’s CES 2015 keynote, with the company showing off a new Stainless Steel model, as well as repeating the features of Android Wear, which […]

Sony to introduce 4K to Action Cam line

By on

Ever heard of a GoPro? Well, forget about it. Sony has a new ‘Action Cam’ model, and it can film in 4K. That’s like…4 K’s. The beautifully titled X1000V looks exactly like previous Action Cam products, although it can now shoot 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 120 fps or 720p video at 240 fps. The camera also now has manual exposure controls, a back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, an ultra-wide-angle 170 degree lens, […]

Sony’s “Symphonic Light speaker” marries sound and light

By on

We all love light, but what if your favourite light could also blast Kanye West’s new track? That’s the promise of Sony’s “Symphonic Light speaker”. In basic terms, it’s a cute little light, sculpted into a tower case, with a speaker at the base, all powered by what Sony described as a “proprietary vertical drive technology.” And to be perfectly honest, it doesn’t look too bad. Presumably music will stream over […]

The Sony Walkman is apparently still a thing, new model to cost $1000+

By on

Sony has a new Walkman MP3 player, and it’s called the Walkman ZX2. Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the player is focused on providing ‘audiophiles’ with a premium portable music experience. And the price tag doesn’t take away from that claim, with an insane US$1,000 retail price being applied to the base model. Though considering the current price for an iPod classic on eBay, that might not be too terrible. With 128GB […]

Sony continues their joyride in the 4K bandwagon: announces 55″ and 65″ displays, as well as prototype 56″ 4K OLED TV

By on

At their CES keynote, Sony today announced that they want to wow customers like they once did, admitting that they’d lost the spart for a few years. But they’re back, according to themselves, with a number of amazing new TVs, yet the stark omission of any 3D TVs, indicative of the lack of interest in the market with that style of television. The TV announcements began with the revelation that […]

By on

Google TV is coming to Australia – via Sony. Yes, from Wednesday, the company is to bundle the set-top box with some of its TVs – namely the HX850 and HX750. Getting the box separately, however, is a different story altogether. Sony has not revealed when it will bring out the “Internet Player with Google TV” as its own standalone product, except giving it a price tag of AU$349.00. However, […]

Your PS Vita gets a little bit more useful – Skype is coming today

By on

The PS Vita – the gaming device that is the successor to the PlayStation Portable (and pretty much a very tiny library of games) – is getting a bit more useful with the addition of Skype. You will now be able to make video and voice calls with the new app, which will be available in the PlayStation Store for free. And as a little nudge after the lack of […]
