Logic dictates that the only thing better than one story from our favourite rumourmonger is two stories. Two in one day! It’s like Easter and Hanukkah rolled into one.
The Sony Xperia Z has been largely well received, and while the industry is generally waiting to see what Samsung has to offer on Thursday, we’re told that the Japanese smartphone has been selling quite well.
Good old DigiTimes beams: “Sales of Sony Mobile Communications' new high-end flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z, have been successful”, with credit going to anonymous “sources in the handset supply chain.” Great stuff.
Impressively, we’re told that Sony Xperia Z allocations in Japan, France, Germany, Hong Kong and Taiwan were “fully booked” on the first day of pre-sales.
The Sony Xperia Z beat the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S IV to the 1080p punch, and while Johnny Know-it-all is reserving final judgement till March 14, Jimmy Casual has seemingly been snapping up Sony’s flagship in decent numbers.
Indeed, Sony confidently aims to shift a nice round 50 million smartphones this year, up from 34 million in the previous fiscal year.
Finally, DigiTimes says Sony has teamed up with Mozilla, with the aim of releasing Firefox OS handsets in Latin America and Africa.
