Having launched a strategy tablets in 2011 (Sony Tablet S and P), with the desire to become one of the leaders of the market, the objective now is to implement an ecosystem of products and services interconnected between them.

Sony StrategieWith smartphones to play a growing role of remote control of equipment and the home gateway connectivity, all the ingredients came together to the foundation of the branch Sony Mobile Communications, in which Sony Ericsson is merged, and who will be coordinating the mobile strategy at all levels.

This requires technical know-how (engine display Mobile Bravia, sensor Exmor S for mobile AFN) and catalogues of content (Music Unlimited, Unlimited Video, Certification PlayStation games Mobile, all constituting the Sony Entertainment Network ).

Xperia NXT 2 Sony pwlc

The whole was convened under a same credo: Watch, Play, Listen, Create. These four pillars are thus in one way or another in Sony products. For the purely mobile part, many things were expected: new Xperia smartphones, a new tablet, a first smartphone Windows Phone, a smartphone Xperia Play 2...

Sony PS certifPerhaps mindful of the way to go, Sony has yet chosen to focus in his press conference on the new Xperia NXT range. It includes the Sony Xperia S, announced at the CES 2012 Las Vegas, and two new models show, low range: the Sony Xperia U and P.

If the attitude is consistent, especially in a context become very difficult and where manufacturers are fighting to try to distinguish themselves from each other, could expect more announcements for a first event intended to mark the spirits and bring a change.

However, Kazuo Hirai announced the imminent launch of a very large advertising campaign to gain visibility in Europe and elsewhere and make themselves known as a manufacturer of smartphones to the general public.

MWC 2012 : LG Optimus Vu et LG Optimus 4X HD

Has been said and repeated, LG Electronics had trouble turning the corner of smartphones, and particularly that of Android. Party after the other (and especially its great competitor Samsung), its mobile products have had difficulty obtaining the desired visibility, allowing several players before.

In 2011, LG attempted a new start by leveraging its know-how and its capacity for innovation, aligning the first world. It him has not necessarily brought luck but the manoeuvre still had the advantage of bringing light on its products.

For the MWC 2012 show, LG Electronics still counts on its capacity for innovation to create the surprise... but it has somewhat been voluntarily éventée by pre - MWC announcements. Because of last-minute announcement, are therefore on the show annnoncés smartphones these days.

The an and most striking is undoubtedly the LG Optimus light, a smartphone with a screen 5 "who has chosen the option of format 4: 3 there where Samsung has favoured the option 16: 9 for its Galaxy Note, which is also part of the family of smartphones with screen 5" and more.

LG Vu 01 LG Vu 02

And if this choice maintains for the Samsung device an aspect of smartphone (and a similar takeover), the LG Vu is resolutely wider, making it less obvious to the border between smartphone and tablet.

The device however, is still in the hand (but the Palm of the hand) more so, without being unpleasant to hold, because of its light weight. It will always regret the aesthetic choice of LG (extended to all its lines) which, that timeless, proposes a very rectangular style and dark missing a bit of fantasy.

A few rounded corners would perhaps not have been luxury on such a device. For the rest, there are the announced features previously. The model taken in hand had a 4 G LTE compatibility but the LG Vu has its variant HSPA +.

A pen is also present, as with the Note of Samsung Galaxy, even if the use of Android Gingerbread Announces use primarily type smartphone, before moving to Android Ice Cream Sandwich later in the year.

On the LG booth, could also discover the first smartphone of the brand to operate a processor Tegra 3 quad-core, in the same way that the manufacturer was last year the LG Optimus 2 X, first dual core smartphone, LG Optimus 4 X HD.

There very rectangular style adopted by LG, enhanced even more by the diagonal of the display, "4.7 (not so far from" 5 of the LG light) but with a 16: 9 format. The takeover is here more consistent with that of a smartphone, with a grooved hanging back holding in hand.

Difficult however to be an idea of performance gain provided by the processor quad-core from these exposure models tortured by visitors. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich however seems to revolve very fluidly.
