MWC14: Sony announces the budget friendly Xperia M2
Sony had definitely planned well for the MWC 2014 and this time around the company has come to Barcelona with three new devices. These include the two new flagships; the Z2 smartphone and Z2 Tablet. In between the excitement of these two devices, the Xperia M2 got lost and not much attention was given to this even before the MWC started and we didn’t even get to hear about it through any leaks or rumors.
The M2 is a perfect option for those who are on a restrictive budget and this is coming as a replacement for the Xperia M which is still a new phone and having been released last year in June, it hasn’t been around for a very long time and a replacement for it seemed very unlikely.
But Sony has brought back the Xperia M with more changes and improvements in the face of the M2. The new phone is going to feature a larger 4.8-inch qHD display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and its 8 MP camera seems pretty impressive for a mid ranger such as the M2. As far as the device thickness, display size, camera resolution and processor cores are concerned; Sony has claimed that the M2 will meet all these benchmarks at a good pace. The new phone will certainly have to look out for competitors such as the Moto G which was quite impressive as a mid ranger.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
