We just heard what Sony had to tell us at Mobile World Congress, and while there was no one "big" announcement they did have a lot to say. The spent a good portion of the time telling us how the buyout of Sony Ericsson would lead to better, more connected products and how it would improve Sony by unifying their products and media company-wide. With things like a dedicated Movie and Music service from the entertainment group and games from the Playstation Network available on all Sony devices with a screen, we're going to have to agree -- Sony is a name to watch in 2012.
On the smartphone side, we had a good look at the Xperia Ion -- Sony's LTE device with a 4.6-inch HD display. Previously announced for AT&T in the United States, we learned that it will be selling world-wide soon. We'll be sure to keep an eye on that. We also had another look at the Xperia P and Xperia U, two stunners in their own right that we'll be seeing sometime in the second quarter of 2012. Last but not least, we were told that the Xperia S would be available starting today (Feb. 26) at the Sony store in Barcelona.
It looks to be an exciting year for Sony, and they plan to launch their biggest advertising campaign ever for the Xperia line worldwide. Alex is on the floor getting some hands-on time with the phones, and we'll be sure to share with you.
