About Sony

In October 2011, Sony announced plans to buy-out Ericsson's 50 percent stake in Sony Ericsson, for a sum of €1.05 billion (£916 million). This deal, which became complete in January 2012, saw Sony merge many of its technologies - including PlayStation gaming and Walkman music players - into the firm's future smartphone releases.

The first of Sony's own-branded smartphones was the high-end Sony Xperia S, which was unveiled at CES in January 2012. This saw a shift in design from the Japanese manufacturer, and arrive touting a 4.3-inch HD touchscreen with Sony's Mobile Bravia Engine and a 12 megapixel rear-facing camera with the company's popular Exmor R sensor.

It's thought that all future Sony smartphones will arrive running on Google's Android software, although there has been rumours that the company are planning to enter the Windows Phone market.
