Verizon launches the Xperia Z3v. Meanwhile, Xiaomi is planning to expand its manufacturing team and Christian Bale is getting ready to play Steve Jobs.
Verizon is not releasing the global Xperia Z3, but they aren’t staying behind in the Sony game. They have put together their very own version of the Z3, named the Sony Xperia Z3v.
The device has finally become available from Big Red and we know many of you will love getting the new Sony smartphone. It closely resembles the Xperia Z3 with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Android 4.4, and a whopping 3200 mAh battery.
Prices are reasonable at $199.99 on a 2-year contract and $599.99 off-contract. Go get it from the Verizon website!
Opinion: We love the Sony Xperia Z3, something you can tell by reading our full review. Verizon users in the USA may not be able to enjoy that device, but the Xperia Z3v is a worthy replacement. Are you getting it?
Following Xiaomi’s great success in India, the Chinese manufacturer may be planning to expand in said country. And not expand as in send more products, they want to straight up build a manufacturing plant in India! Or at least they are considering it.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Xiaomi’s Manu Jain states the following:
“We always thought that our manufacturing would be based out of China. But India is beginning to become so important for us that we started to think whether we should set up our own manufacturing.”
Opinion: Once again, India has proven to be a significant market in this industry. It is even more interesting to see Xiaomi do this, a manufacturer that would be successful wherever it goes.
Not happy with Ashton Kutcher’s representation of Steve Jobs? It’s not the end of the world. A new Steve Jobs biopic is coming and this time Christian Bale will be taking Steve Jobs’ role.
Can he do better? Aaron Sorkin believes so. In fact, Christian Bale didn’t even have to audition. The decision was taken after a meeting, in which they decided he would be the best option for this role.
Opinion: Many believe Ashton Kutcher couldn’t legitimately represent Steve Jobs’ image. Maybe Christian Bale can keep the crowd happier.
