It goes without saying that having a single flagship device in your product line up is always advantageous, but it does seem as though the folks over at Sony intend to rock the boat somewhat with the introduction of the Sony Xperia Z2 at this year’s Mobile World Congress. It appears as though the Xperia Z2 will carry the sole flagship status for just half a year. How did we arrive at such a conclusion? Sony Mobile’s Creative Director, Director of Product Planning and UX General Manager, Yoshiro Kurozumi, did mention that he figured out that a half a year upgrade cycle would be able to better serve this smartphone industry.
Kurozumi shared that to maintain a the flagship status of the product, one ought to upgrade it as soon as possible so that it will be able to remain competitive, and the Xperia Z2 in all probability will remain as Sony’s flagship smartphone only for the first half of this year. We do wonder just which of its “co-flagships” will be down the road.
There is nothing quite like having an app released for your particular device or platform to show the world just how popular it is with the masses. The recently announced Nokia X, which is an Android-powered device from Nokia, will be on the receiving end of a fully customized Skype app for the Nokia X range as part of Skype’s attempt to lock down on a new mobile audience.
In this particular customized version of the Android-powered app for the Nokia X range, it will feature the likes of notifications appearing in Fastlane, where all you need to do is to tap to jump right into your conversation. Apart from that, there will also be customized Livetiles, where you can opt to resize and position them around the Start screen according to your whim and fancy. Are you pleased that the Nokia X family would be receiving a customized version of Skype?
