Ready for the weekend madness? Make sure you get your tech news before you head out. Today’s stories are all about Apple, Sony and Google.
Wondering what would become of Apple’s acquisition of Beats? Well, it seems the first signs of this deal are showing up – the Cupertino giant has removed all Bose products from its website and some of its retail stores.
This comes after a recent problem Beats and Bose had, but it doesn’t seem that is the cause, as it has been settled. This is probably just a strategic move to get rid of some competition, as Apple now owns Beats.
Opinion: The move makes sense from a business stand point. After all, Apple has been known for trying to fight the competition by getting rid of it, right?
Thinking of buying the Sony SmartWatch 3? The Android Wear device has just shown up at the Google Play Store with a $249.99 price tag. Sadly, it shows up as “coming soon”.
We have no clue when it will become available for purchase, but it should be soon. At least we know Google is getting ready for the device’s launch.
Opinion: I don’t happen to be a big fan of the Sony SmartWatch 3. It’s priced like the premium Android Wear devices, yet it doesn’t offer what the other high-end smartwatches offer. You can check out our hands-on article to see for yourself.
Andorid 5.0 Lollipop has been announced and all the details are out. Only one question remains – when will our devices get the update?
We know Google devices will be the first to get it, and Motorola has announced which devices will be upgraded. Now Sony is stepping up and telling us they will be making Android 5.0 Lollipop available to its complete premium Z series.
This includes the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1S, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3v, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.
The Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition will be first in line, with other devices to follow in the beginning of 2015. Stay tuned for more details!
Opinion: Sony has been doing a good job with updates, so I was expecting them to say something about Android 5.0 Lollipop. They are not leaving many of us behind, either!
