United States and China to wait for Sony smartphones

Photo Credit: BGR

The latest release of Sony is  the magnificent Xperia Z1 with 5 inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, and 20MP camera along with 1/2.3-inch image sensor. As for the operating system, the smartphone runs on Android 4.2 and Sony’s own User Interface (UI).

Now though there have been some news leaks around that T-Mobile (US Carrier) may release a few Sony Xperia Z1 on the US soil, but Sony itself is not so interested to focus on the US right now and even in China. Rather, they are targeting more o the European and Japanese markets.

As per a statement of Kaz Hirai, CEO of Sony, "Those two are the most important areas for us and we'll put substantial resources there. But not yet for the U.S. and China. It's not realistic to try to do everything at once. In the U.S. we'll start gradually."

From their slow pace strategy to acquire the market shares, it is very explicable that Sony does not want to move in haste. The statistics are straight too in this case, as the seventh largest smartphone maker has taken a modest sales target of only 42 million units of Xperia Z1, till March 2014.

For the time being, we can just hope for the smartphone to launch here early.

One look at the trailer for Microsoft's upcoming Metroidvania adventure Ori and the Blind Forest and it's easy to be blown away by its Studio Ghibli inspired visuals. It's also just as easy to be a little dubious, thinking it's a knee-jerk reaction to the Redmond giant's less than stellar reputation with indie developers after Sony made such a fuss about them last year. "We can do pretty, quirky indie games too!" it seemed to say. It may ...
