Sony rolls out Android 4.4 for Xperia Z2

Sony has today announced the latest update for its Xperia Z2 flagship, giving the handset Android 4.4 KitKat and bringing it up to speed with rival devices. It struck us as odd that Sony did not release the Z2 with KitKat in the first place and the company has been unusually slow bumping it to Android 4.4. We hope the Japanese giant is a little quicker in rolling out new Android versions when it releases the Xperia Z3 later in the...

Is the company's new handset, the Xperia Z2a, launched today the newest Compact from Sony? Not quite, but read on and you may see where it gets confusing.

Sony showcases Xperia T3 with slim frame and 5.3-inch display

Sony's huge strides in the mobile market have been built on very good flagship devices, but the Japanese brand has done a great job padding out its Xperia range with solid handsets at all price points. The company has already rolled out its high end devices earlier in the year and is now focusing on some lower end products, although the design of the Xperia T3 is straight from flagship territory.
