Tesla is getting ready to show off some new goodies, Spotify reaches PlayStation and new Xperia Z4 benchmarks leak.
Elon Musk has become an important voice in the industry. Not only because of his vision and what he has accomplished, but because he also happens to be very vocal about his opinions and projects. Today Elon is taking it to Twitter to tell us the company is unveiling a new product line on Thursday, April 30th at 8 PM.
The kicker? It’s not a car. So if it’s not a vehicle, what could it be? We recently heard about a battery that was meant to power your home. Could this be what the April 30th announcement is all about? We will simply have to wait and see.
Opinion: Tesla is full of surprises, so we may as well see something we never even imagined. I do wonder what this battery project is all about, though.
Sony announced a partnership with Spotify in January, a deal that would ensure PlayStation users get access to Spotify’s services via an app called PlayStation Music. Sony Music Unlimited has officially died and the replacement came just in time.
These changes apply for the PS4 and PS3, and it seems to be an exclusive deal. Microsoft won’t be getting the same treatment for a while, so enjoy your new treat!
Opinion: I guess the cool thing about PlayStation Music is that you can play your tunes wile gaming. This is turning the PS4 and PS3 into a much more integrated media device, which was certainly something they needed to do to better compete against Microsoft.
A Sony E6553 has shown up in a benchmark. This device is presumed to be the Sony Xperia Z4, a flagship smartphone many of us have been eagerly waiting for. Does this mean the launch is close? Maybe, but what really matters about this leak is that we are getting a list of possible specs.
According to this benchmark, the Xperia Z4 will come with Android 5.0.2, a 5.1-inch 1080p display, a 1.9 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, an Adreno 430 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a 20 MP rear-facing camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera.
Opinion: Those would be pretty good specs, but they are nothing special compared to what other manufacturers offer. We all know what really matters here is how this hardware is used and what the software offers. Also, these are all still rumors, so take it with a grain of salt.
