You sure about that? Because it's only a year-old. :)

Fingers crossed the Z gets support! Maybe in the 4.2.2 rollout?

i'll probably getting the ZL or the SP but knowing sony's track record on updating phones, gonna wait for android 5.0 to be announced. Sony's gonna announce which phones will get it, then I'll decide. don't wanna be left behind the OS like what they did with sola & xperia U.

Makes sense only if you stream content to your tv, but probably there would be some of them who will squint at their smartphones, couple of feets away... And I don't wanna talk about those smartphone joypad "holders", they are just plain ridiculous.

Yeah. Like in the videos they showed earlier. Play games in the Xperia and watch it on the Bravia TV.. Awesome!!!

But can't they just put in Android to the 3G PS VIta? That will do the trick.

Then it'll require more battery and processing power just to stay functioning and without lags... I'd say no. Vita's OS might not be as good as Android but at least the OS doesn't demand unnecessary battery and ads...

All the Xperia phones? Sony is amazing! I will forgive them by not updating my sola. I hope my xperia sola will be supported.
