Sony has just finished their slot on stage and have shown off a fair few announcements at Mobile World Congress.
Sony have taken a step into the smartwatch market with the SmartBand SWR10 and provided some further information about their SmartWear experience. This focuses on what Sony are calling Lifelogging which coupled with the Android application provides a new user experience which Sony says is built around three key pillars – “Lifelogging”, “Wearing Smart” and “Life tools”.
Sony’s innovative new Lifelog application binds the SmartWear Experience together, enabling you to discover your past, enjoy your present and helping inspire your future. Together with SmartBand, the Android app enables you to effortlessly capture life and entertainment – places visited, music listened to, games played, books read – and presents it a beautifully visual interface.
Sony also took the opportunity to reveal the next generation of Xperia devices.
First up is the Xperia Z2 which feautres a 20.7-Megapixel, which Sony are saying is the best camera in a waterproof smartphone. The device features a 5.2″ Full HD display and is powered by The latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2.3 GHz quad-core Krait CPUs and 4G LTE, 3GB RAM and high capacity 3200mAh battery.
Inline with the new device, the Xperia Z2 tablet has been announced, which Sony are calling “the thinnest, lightest waterproof 10″ tablet in the world and our best tablet yet”.
Finally, Sony have announced the Xperia M2 – a 4G compatible qHD device with a 8-Megapixel camera which is the more affordable of the devices but does not compromise on speed, or at least the company claims.
Sony have shown off their next generation devices, and are claiming they are all the fastest in the world. Whilst they are certainly impressive, we are still yet to see what Samsung have to offer.
