Sony have launched the Sony X-Series Walkman, the first Walkman designed to take on the iPod Touch. Not only can this beast play music and videos, it’ll also let you browse the Web, and comes with Wi-Fi and a user interface that’s at least as good as Apple’s legendary multi-touch interface. In other words, it’s […]

Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-G3

This camera has everything; the picture even has a snazzy “web2.0” reflection. Manufactures have been adding features and gizmos to mobile phones for years but this could be the first sign that cameras are going to get the same treatment. We have been moving towards the one device to control them all for sometime but […]

Sony Bravia KDL46Z4500U LCD TV

I was walking round my local electronics store the other day, idly browsing the shelves to see what New Years bargains I could pick up, when I was literally stopped dead in my tracks by, of all things, an HDTV set. It wasn’t the set itself that stopped me – it was the quality of […]

Sony DVD Receiver - the Sony DAVDZ260

The Sony DAVDZ260 is a Sony DVD receiver that’s chock full of features, but is now available at a bargain price. A DVD receiver is simply a home theater system with a DVD player and radio built-in.

Sony BDP-S350 Blu-Ray player

This is the Sony BDP-S350, a new Blu-Ray from the people who invented the format. You’d think, given that Blu-Ray is a Sony technology, that the company’s Blu-Ray players would be up there with the best of them – but no, they’ve traditionally been over-priced and under-featured.

Sony have released a range of new Bravia Link modules that expand your Sony Bravia HDTVs, letting them link with a plethora of other devices, and wirelessly stream HDTV from other sources to your Bravia TV.

Sony wireless OLED TV

No, that is not a giant flower in a huge vase; it is in fact just a small TV. It is widely know that OLED screens are currently very small and very expensive. To give you an idea, the Sony OLED XEL-1 hit stores earlier this year priced at $2,500, as the XEL-1 is only […]

Sony Portable Media Player

I thought the Creative Zen Mozaic was bad enough but Sony have managed to raise the level of ugly with their PMX-U55 personal media player. I am not sure which bit of the above image I dislike the most, the picture of the dog or the media player itself. I just hope that the device […]
