Sony on Thursday confirmed the upcoming availability of the Xperia Z1f, a smaller version of the flagship Z1 smartphone. The internal hardware is largely unchanged; we’re still looking at a top-tier Android experience.The Z1f runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and features a 2.3GHZ quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage. Like its larger brother, the handset includes a 20.7-megapixel EXMOR camera sensor and comes with the same water resistance. The main difference here comes in the display: the Xperia Z1f includes a 4.3-inch 720p screen as opposed to the 5-inch 1080p screen.
The Sony SmartWatch 2 was released earlier this year internationally to bring on a second wave of wearable technology to the masses where most competing manufacturers had only had one – or none at all. Here in the Fall of 2013, Sony brings this water-resistant Android smartwatch to the USA with full compatibility with the Android smartphone of your choice.

Japanese mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo has announced that it won't be launching a Tizen OS smartphone as it had planned to do in the past. The Japanese carrier says that the smartphone market is growing too slowly for a third operating system. The Japanese carrier had planned to launch a Tizen-powered smartphone in March.
Samsung has revealed two new smartwatches, the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, refining its original Galaxy Gear wearable and ditching Android for Tizen in the process. Revealed at MWC 2014 , the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo each have a 1.63-inch 320 x 320 Super AMOLED display and run Samsung-led Tizen on a 1GHz dualcore processor. Differentiating the two is that the Neo lacks a camera, a 2-megapixel shooter which the Gear 2 integrates into its main body, not the strap as before.
We have seen talk of the Sony Xperia Z1 Mini before, as both the Z1 F and the Z1 S. The former has been officially announced and will be available in Japan by way of NTT DoCoMo. For today though, a recently discovered FCC filing is showing the Xperia Z1 S with the codename of Anami.
This of course, is in keeping with the earlier Honami codename, which was the Xperia Z1 .
One of the rather unsung points TUAW posted after the Apple Event on Tuesday is that Apple had inked a deal for Japan's leading mobile carrier -- NTT DoCoMo -- to carry the iPhone for the first time. While that doesn't sound like a big deal, it stands to help out NTT DoCoMo a lot. The company has 61 million subscribers, but churn (subscribers leaving to go elsewhere) has been a problem.
Nokia has launched the Lumia 1520, the company’s flagship phablet with a 6-inch Full HD screen, Windows Phone 8.1, and a 20-megapixel PureView camera borrowing the lossless digital zoom from the Lumia 1020 .
Coming off some earlier rumors and leaks of a US release, Samsung has officially announced the availability of the Galaxy S4 mini. The handset will be coming to four US carriers and it is set to arrive next month. While Samsung has confirmed the phone will be arriving in November, we do still need specific release dates and prices from the carriers.
Following up on our report that Apple sales in Japan are on the rise, we're now hearing word the top 10 selling smartphones in the country are all various models of the iPhone.The data comes courtesy of BCN Rankings which, according to Electronista, ranks the top 10 best-selling smartphones in the country week by week.
Kyocera has released more than a few waterproof phones over the past several months. In fact, we have taken a look at a few of them here at Android Community. There was the Kyocera Torque and Hydro Edge , both of which had decent specs, but appeared more of the focus was on the water-resistance.
Since you have to use a Bluetooth connection in order to use the main features of this watch, that means your smartphone is already very close by. So just use the phone… it’s much easier and will save you $300.When the folks at Verizon asked me if I’d like to try out the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch , I had to take a minute to make my decision.
Sony has finally taken off the covers from its Xperia Z1 f SO-02F smartphone, what everyone is nicknaming the “Honami mini”. And indeed, it seems that it has inherited almost all the impressive features of its larger sibling, but packaged in a more manageable size.
Verizon Wireless has launched their latest prepaid smartphone. The handset is the Samsung Galaxy Legend, though some may recognize it as the Galaxy Stellar. In fact, the Galaxy Stellar launched with Big Red as a free-on-contract device back in September 2012. Needless to say, Verizon has the Galaxy Legend sitting in the prepaid lineup with a price point of $129.99.
