With CES 2015 rapidly approaching, the speculation inevitably begins, and first up is Sony who may just be set to launch an Android powered VAIO branded smartphone.

There’s no word as to the exact specifics of what a VAIO device may entail, but with the success of Sony’s Xperia lineup, you can bet it’ll be one heck of a device. The VAIO Android device is expected, however, to not be a high-end smartphone, and instead be reasonably priced.

It seems that only time will tell with this one, but keep your eyes peeled on our CES 2015 hub for the latest news.

    • Agreed. It would be slightly confusing why they’d resurrect a primarily laptop brand and replace/combine it with the already widely known Xperia range. But, there is room in their product lineup for a budget device, just not convinced at this stage that VAIO is the way they’re going.

    • It’ll be a budget device, so don’t expect anything too high-end. I can’t see them getting rid of their Xperia devices in favour of the VAIO brand, but you never know.

    • They sold the PC business, whilst retaining a small stake, but I think they still own the VAIO brandname so don’t think there’s anything stopping them using it for smartphones since they only sold the PC portion.

      • Ah, I see. Thanks for the heads-up.

        Looking forward to what they’re going to be bring to the table, then.
