What do you think guys what is holding back Sony's penetration to US and Canadian market? And why is Samsung so dominant in Android world? (Because I do not think that they make best smartphones, and I don't know a single person who thinks so)

I've always thought about getting a 10 inch tablet for casual use but I also want it to be very powerful. I want to choose the Xperia Tablet Z or the next generation iPad. So here's my question: Is there going to be a next generation Sony Tablet Z? If so, any rumors or specs about it?

The Xperia Tablet Z released in march (or something like that) so I am sure the next Xperia tablet won't be released until next year, so ıt's completely expected that there isn't any rumors about it yet.

Do you think the Z1's camera can compete with that of Lumia 1020? Another question! Will the Nexus 4 also get the 4.4 update around the same date as on the N5?

That's the point of having a Nexus...

Doesn't Xperia Z1 have a trilominous display which makes it better than Htc One and Lg G2?

Do you think that KitKat 4.4 will bring project Roadrunner? Would changing the processors to 64-bit make a difference for our phones, like improvements upon battery life, better performance? Would we see our phone get more ram to better support the 64-bit processors?

You are talking like 4.1 was a minor update
