What do a lollipop, a chameleon, time-lapse footage of Paris, the menacing shadow of a dragon, a rectangle-shaped device reflected in an eyeball, face paint, tears and pregnancy have in common?
If you answered: “They all appear in Sony’s artsy fartsy CES 2015 video trailer,” well, I guess you already read the headline. Smart ar*e.
Yep, all those crazy things – and more – are available for all to see in Sony’s YouTube video Welcome to the New World. The eight people who dislike it clearly have no taste; or an abundance of taste – I’m not sure which.
Needless to say, Sony’s CES 2015 teaser isn’t giving away much at all, not directly. But, as ever, there’s plenty to garner if we read between the lines.
The presence of a Lollipop suggests not only Android 5.0 update goodness (a lady in a lift presses floor 5, incidentally) for existing devices; in addition we might meet Sony’s Android Lollipop Smart TV.
There’s also that rectangle reflected in an eyeball, which suggests we could be looking at a new smartphone. Top contenders include the Sony Xperia Z4, Xperia Z4 Compact, and/or Xperia Z4 Ultra.
As for that pregnant belly, er, let’s assume Sony is keen to... give birth to lots of new products at CES 2015. Or something.
In any case, CES 2015 gets underway on January 6, just over two weeks from now.
