Friday, January 12th, 2018

CES is wrapping up (I left Thursday afternoon), so we figured it would be a good time to sit down and give all of you an easy place to find a bunch of the stuff announced that are related to Android. This post will focus on all of the television sets that will come with Android TV installed. I got see a few of them on the show floor, but they weren't all that exciting from a brief glance standpoint — we've all seen TVs and most of us know what Android TV looks like by now.

Sony announces tiny MP-CD1 mobile projector, coming this spring for $400

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

There have been more than a few attempts at making portable projectors tiny enough to fit in your pocket, with the InstaShare Moto Mod being one of the latest. Sony apparently wants to give it a shot, as it announced the MP-CD1 mobile projector earlier today.

The MP-CD1 can project an image of up to 120 inches at 105 lumens, while only weighing 9.9 ounces. The 854x480 resolution is similar to other pico projectors, like the Anker Nebula Capsule.

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

Sony's been busy with announcements so far at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, debuting new headphones and speakers, an Android Auto audio system, and some new phones (trademark bezels still intact). There are surely many more new Sony things being launched at the show, but not all of them are relevant to us here. New Android TV sets with the Google Assistant built-in? Yep, that's relevant enough.

Two new premium models have been unveiled by Sony, with display technology being the major difference between them.

Sony adding Google Assistant support to headphones and speakers via software update

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

While Sony just announced a bunch of new headphones and speakers, some older Sony products are getting Google Assistant added via a forthcoming firmware update. As these headphones do not have independent Wi-Fi connections, Assistant availability depends on pairing the headphones with a phone.

The newly-announced WF-SP700N and WI-SP600N noise-cancelling sport headphones, as well as the HT-Z9F and HT-X9000F soundbars come with support for Google Assistant out of the box. For the WF-1000X, WI-1000X, and WH-1000XM2, as well as the WH-CH900N and h.ear on 2 WH-H900N wireless noise cancelling series of headphones and earbuds released last year, software updates will be provided to add Assistant support.

Sony introduces new Bluetooth sound bars, speakers, and headphones

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

Sony has announced a total of eight new Bluetooth connectable audio devices at CES. Of these, three are extra bass portable speakers, three are sports headphones, and two are soundbars. Naturally, the Japanese electronics giant has a few tricks to show off for extra visibility. Simply hearing your music is clearly not enough in 2018.

First off, the portable extra bass speakers: SRS-XB41, SRS-XB31, and SRS-XB21. The trio have the ability to be connected to a group of speakers, up to 100 at a time.

Sony announces Android Auto car audio system with “astonishingly flat” touchscreen

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018


Sony announced a new in-car audio head unit at CES today that integrates with Android Auto, the XAV-AX5000, the centerpiece of which is a bezel-less and flush 6.95" touch display.

How bezel-less and how flush? Sony dares characterize it as "astonishingly flat." Oh my.

The touchscreen is capacitive, as opposed to the previous model's, which was resistive. It can be connected to a vehicle's rear camera, features aluminum hardware keys along the bottom for basic system operation, and Sony says that the unit boots up "soon after ignition is turned on." Well, one would hope.
