Lets not forget Sony dropped them too.. They have a LOT of ground to make up if they don't want to go bankrupt.

I'm certain a version of the a9600 with integrated LTE was going to be the best chip next year overall. I hope Sony buy them out of this mess.

a9600 is no longer on their product list... Most likely been dropped
