The first full day of CES 2016 is jam-packed with events from the big names in technology. Capping off the first day of the convention is Sony, who always manages to wow us with announcements about what is ahead.
Sony uses its venue at far end of the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center to showcase the breadth of its impressive technology
portfolio. Sometimes this includes announcements of new smartphones, sometimes not.DON'T MISS

Last we heard a couple weeks ago, the rumor mill is undecided
about what to expect, if anything, from Sony on the smartphone front at CES this year. One side of the mill suggested a possible whole new host of Xperia Z6 gear, another side indicates that Sony will pare down the smartphone offering a little bit, with a couple of flagships packing the latest from Qualcomm and its forthcoming Snapdragon 820 CPU.
Of course, that is not the end-all-be-all for mobile, we may see some new wearables, and Sony is certainly looking at ways to connect the home and other “Internet of Things” technology that can all be harnessed by mobile.
