Sony Xperia Z3v and SmartWatch 3 available with Verizon

A couple of weeks after announcing the Xperia Z3v, Verizon has put the Sony smartphone on sale, with the device costing $200 on a two year contract plan or $600 upfront.

Sony event scheduled for October 9th

Sony is holding a special event in New York City on October 9th, but the Japanese company is unlikely to be rolling out a new product.
