While Pocketnow's North American roots come in handy quite often, the arrangement isn't without its snags. We do miss out on the occasional smartphone release by virtue of our location, and the brand most often affected by this is the somewhat Euro-centric Sony. As listeners of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast are aware, this causes us some heartburn; it's frustrating to miss the chance to go hands-on with the latest and greatest. But we almost always manage to snag Sony demo units somehow. Over the past few years, the fine people at Clove Technology and Negri Electronics have loaned us ...

Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we go through some recent iPod Touch rumors that mention it being launched along with the iPhone 5 in the next couple of days.

Sony's brand new Xperia Tablet S has seen the light of day at the IFA in Berlin and we've taken a quick look at the slate while we were at the keynote. It packs a Tegra 3 quad-core CPU running clocking at 1.4GHz, 9.4-inch display with 1280x800 resolution, eight-megapixel main camera, one-megapixel webcam, plus the usual suspects. It became available in the U.K. on September 7 and is now ready for you to purchase in the U.S. too. The 16GB version goes for $399,00 and the top model, with 64GB of internal storage will set you back $599,99 (they ask $499,99 for the 32GB flavor). Regardless of ...

Aside from the good news that many Sony fans received at IFA 2012 with all their new Xperia line-up, the only question that was left cooking is: when do we get them? Well without much noise, Sony has just begun shipping their flagship Xperia Tablet S in the UK. You'll find the tablet in three configurations which obviously vary in price: 16GB / 32GB WiFi-only models for £329 and £379 (which is around $523 and $602), respectively and a sadly only one 16GB 3G variant that's being sold for a whopping £429 (about $682). Obviously you're looking at a very good Sony tablet running on a ...

I get nostalgic every time I remember Sony Ericsson's first Xperia, the X1. Can any of you remember that insanely great machine? In short, that device made Windows Mobile look good. At times when Windows Mobile was on decline and smartphone manufacturers were still stuck on just doing the typical and dead "Today screen", Sony Ericsson was different. When it came to hardware, I still share Brandon’s first word when he unboxed it in 2008: “Wow”. When it came to software, the animated panels that made it unique are still one of the most intuitive user interfaces I've ever used. There's ...

Some info leaked in the weeks leading up to the IFA, including images showing-off a new Sony tablet, presumed to be the successor to its Tablet S. They showed a much thinner tablet, as well as a convertible keyboard cover, Surface-style. Sure enough, Sony has just made things official at its IFA press event, announcing this new tablet as the Xperia Tablet S. Like the rumors indicated, the new entry to the Xperia lineup runs a quad-core Tegra 3. It's lighter and thinner than the first Tablet S, runs Ice Cream Sandwich, and features a 9.4-inch 1280 x 800 IPS LCD. The leaked software features ...
