Sony revives old values as Xperia Tablet Z launches globally
Tony Cripps, devices and platforms analyst, Ovum
“Sony Mobile gave its Xperia Tablet Z a global launch at Mobile World Congress 2013 following an advanced launch with NTT Docomo in Japan in January. The Android-based device comes in both Wi-Fi-only and combined LTE/Wi-Fi versions and is expected to go on sale in May. Carrier partners have not yet been announced outside of Japan.The Xperia Tab is intended to restore Sony’s core values in the minds of consumers rather than change the tablet market status quo. The company only has modest expectations for sales of the device, which is very much aimed at the premium end of the tablet spectrum. It is certainly not cheap and has Apple’s iPad as its primary competition after all. However, in terms of design, build quality, features (including excellent sound and display), usability, and exclusivity, the Xperia Tab may prove to be a key product in Sony’s rebirth. This has been underway since the company brought the previously wayward Sony Mobile back into the fold following its acquisition of Ericsson’s share in the venture.

Rural Dwellers Demand Faster Broadband But Telco Infrastructure Still In The Horse Drawn Age
Last week, a survey conducted by the Institute of Directors revealed that the overwhelming majority of firms believe that a faster broadband connection would help them increase productivity, while only a quarter are satisfied with the mobile Internet speeds they receive. With the research also highlighting widespread dissatisfaction with Internet provision in rural areas, teliqo’s Russell Lux believes it is high time broadband and mobile network operators brought their infrastructure up to scratch in the areas away from major cities, in order for the whole country to reap the benefits of superfast connectivity.
