We've known about Sony's Xperia Tablet Z for the last month or so. It promised incredible lightness, thinness, speed, and beauty. Guess what? It deliveres.
High-end television sets are increasingly overrun with gimmicky hardware—gesture control remotes come to mind—that few people need and even fewer want. But Sony's latest Bravia flagship does only what a TV should do—and does it better than any other LED. Thank goodness.
For a long time now Sony has made some of the best cameras out there. Love the iPhone 4S camera? Yeah, because it's got a Sony Exmor sensor in it. Sony's two new Xperias are also pushing the visuals mighty hard.
3DTV has earned a bad rap, and for good reason. Fast-moving sequences get blurry, the contrast gets soggy depending on the room's brightness—and God help you if you try to watch low-resolution video. But Sony's new Bravia HX 850 series aims to eliminate all these issues in one fell swoop.
After eight-straight years of losses, Sony's splitting its Bravia TV business into three and cutting back. The surviving TV arms will be Sony-made LCDs, outsourced displays and next-gen TVs.
If you bought a Sony TV between 2007 and 2008, it might be a fire hazard! Since 2008, 11 people have claimed their Bravia TVs caught on fire, prompting Sony to now recall 1.6 million TVs.
Sony Japan has announced three new Bravia models that include 500GB hard drives—and let users record "up to" 65 hours of high-definition television directly to HD. The LED-backlit TVs also support external USB hard drives, with users able to connect additional storage to record on once the built-in drive's full. Plus…
Sony's TV lineup runs deep—as usual. Twenty seven new sets! But the star is the XBR-HX929, a 3d-capable LCD with local dimming backlights, and many internet streaming services. It can even name tunes in movies using gracenote.
It's baa-aack! Sony's new Bravia KDL-22PX300 exhumes the PS2's still-enjoyable corpse and packs into its own base. The 22-inch set won't upscale PS2 titles, but supports 720p playback. It's an odd inclusion, but would probably be a dorm room dream.
Everybody remembers Sony's Bravia Bouncing Balls comercial where colorful, inoffensive bouncing balls dance across a city street, right? Nissan remixed that spot a few months ago and replaced the bouncing balls with bowling balls. Yes they did. Watch the damage here.
The promise of Sony's entry into the 3DTV market has been swirling since last September. Today they're not just dipping their toes in the 3D waters; they're delivering a full-on cannonball, with the launch of seven 3D and "3D-ready" TVs.
Google's TV ambitions scrambled into view last month, when the NYT outlined the company's plans. Today, we learn a little more: Google—with Sony—is making an announcement next month, around a version of Android called Dragonpoint. UPDATED
Sony hasn't exactly been coy about positioning the PS3 as a platform for 3D gaming and movies, but now SCEA's John Koller has revealed that multiple 3D firmware updates will arrive on the PS3 by this summer:
Sony just announced at their ever-hectic press conference that the PS3 will be able to play full 3D movies through the newly announced 3D Bravias.
Sony's launching thirty-eight TVs. The best, the XBR-LX900, is a 3D-ready edge-lit LED set that goes up to 60 inches with 240Hz, Wi-Fi (for video services like Netflix), face detection (for auto-backlight dimming) and an anti-reflective panel. And Three-Dee.
It's not everyday that we get a corker of a device turning up on the FCC database like this. It comes from Sony land, and is called the HID-C10 Home Information Device. Catchy.
For an upcoming ad campaign, Sony Australia used a vehicle safety testing facility to ram the 7-pound PS3 Slim into the face of a Bravia KDL46X LCD TV. The results are hypnotizing.
Sony's slimmed-down PS3 is a cute little ugly duckling, and not without its concessions. From fewer USB ports to an over-priced vertical stand, and its removed "Install Other OS" feature, here's what you should know before picking one up.
