Sony debuts Xperia Smartwear

Sony is officially in the game of wearable tech with the debut of the Xperia Smartwear which records your activities throughout the day.  Now I said “activities” because this is much more than just another fitness band that counts steps and calorie output.  However, it’s not quite a smart watch such as the Qualcomm Toq.

Smartwear gently vibrates on your wrist when you receive a notification or a call, but the really cool feature is the bookmark feature.  With the simple press of a button on the wristband, Smartwear will record everything that is happening at that moment.  For example, you’re out with friends at a restaurant or you hear something on Pandora, it will record that moment in time for future reference.  It also comes in a plethora of colors to choose from!

Sony ‘Sirius’ smartphone and ‘Castor’ tablet expected at Mobile World Congress

The flagship smartphone and tablet should debut in late February

CES 2014 is not even halfway in the books and yet we’re already looking ahead to the next big event. According to trusted leakmaster @evleaks, Sony is expected to debut its 2014 flagship smartphone and tablet at the annual conference.

The so-called Sony ”Sirius” smartphone will reportedly feature a Qualcomm MSM8974AB processor, a 5.2-inch 2,560×1,440 pixel display, 3GB RAM, a 20.7-megapixel rear camera with G Lens, and a 3,500mAh battery. Allegedly, the device will run Android 4.4 KitKat and we suspect it will boast the full suite of Sony apps and services. According to the source, Verizon will offer this particular model when it comes stateside.

As for the tablet, the Sony “Castor” will also feature the same processor and come in both Wi-Fi only and 4G LTE versions. There’s no other specs to share at this point but we expect nothing short of incredible and powerful.

Mobile World Congress takes place in Barcelona, Spain starting on February 24 so there’s plenty of time left for more leaks and images to surface.
