Waterproof and dustproof Xperia Z ?

Sony’s new release claims to be resistant to water and to dust, and additionally jumps on a number of smartphone trends. However, it has a huge competition ahead considering the fact that Apple and Samsung own 90% of the smartphone market.

Sony Mobile Communications has finally released the latest model in its Xperia line, the waterproof and dustproof Xperia Z.

The 4G LTE device incorporates a 13-MP camera and a 5-inch full HD 1080p screen hopped-up by Sony’s Bravia Engine 2. It’s designed around a Qualcomm flower S4 processor, and runs on Android Jelly Bean v4.1

The Xperia Z, Sony Mobile’s new flagship device, comes preloaded with the company’s Walkman, Album and films apps.

Owners will share music, photos and videos between other Xperia Z’s and NFC-enabled Sony devices, as well as speakers, headphones and also the new Bravia TV.

“No other smartphone manufacturer will give customers full access to the whole operating system, hardware and connection between devices that Sony will”, says Sneeden, the Xperia promoting manager of Sony Mobile, said at the TechNewsWorld. “With our media applications, we offer individuals a new multimedia experience with our new devices.”

The Xperia Z incorporates a 5-inch screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution that has a QWERTY keyboard. It’s protected by tempered glass and anti-shatter film on the front and back and is water resistant and dust resistant.

A couple of options such as the Bravia Engine and the quick Capture feature within the smartphone’s 13-MP rear camera were introduced within the Xperia line last year.

The rear camera has the back-illuminated Exmor RS sensing element, HDR video and noise reduction. It additionally has auto focus, face detection, burst photo mode and offers 16x digital zoom.

There is a front-facing 2.2-MP 1080p camera with geotagging and also the ability to record HD video.

The Xperia Z’s processor runs at 1.5 GHz, and also the device incorporates a Battery Stamina mode that improves standby time by a minimum of 400 % by turning off background apps when the screen is turned off.

The smartphone will run on Android 4.1 at launch, and can be upgraded to Android 4.2.

Connectivity includes LTE, HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.

The phone comes with pre-loaded apps such as the Walkman app, that provides access to the user’s downloaded music and a library of eighteen million songs, and numerous Google applications, like Google Play.

The Xperia Z incorporates a microSD card slot which will take cards with up to 32-GB in capacity.

Marketing problems with the waterproof and dustproof Xperia Z

This is the result of Sony being, as usual, a very fast follower, Morgan explained. For instance, by implementing huge screen and smart cameras into it’s devices Sony is just following the trend.

The Xperia Z isn’t really above the competition and it wouldn’t hurt Sony to come up with some innovations of their own,Morgan stated. He figures the device will be offered for a price of $150 when it subsides.

The Xperia Z can launch globally, however we haven’t really established what carriers will receive the device, Sneeden declared.

Making friends with the Xperia Z

Sony was among the highest five vendors worldwide in Q3 this fall. That says to the fact that Sony is really well received overseas and that it will soon launch a high-end device full with the latest hardware and innovative features.

The company does not have ties with enough carriers within the U.S. They only have AT&T, that has many alternative devices to represent itself. It wouldn’t hurt Sony to make some more relations and include other carriers for the U.S., it would only boost the sales of their product.
