SONY VS APPLE seems to be the new topic on the mobile world, The new Xperia plans to heavily compete against Apple’s Iphone 5 and newer models coming up. Sony is focusing on ease of use and effectiveness as they say that’s is why Apple remains leader
“To win against the iPhone, we have to offer a model which is generally easy to use. Sony’s brand and Xperia’s image are just as good as the iPhone.”
Once such device is the Sony Xperia A which saw its launch in May, and has since seen some great action, according to Tsubouchi. Recognized as the Xperia ZR internationally, the 4.6-incher has been doing so well it sold in at over 1.2 million during the period ending August 4, with 2 million devices expected to be sold by September. Moreover, the Xperia A has actually been outperforming Samsung’s Galaxy S4 nearly two to one – Sammy sold ‘just’ 630,000 of its flagship devices on the network.
These figures, according to Bloomberg Japan, mean that the carrier will be placing more orders with Sony in the months to come.
But despite the success of the Xperia A in Japan (where it has the home field advantage), the western variant, the Xperia ZR, has seen limited availability internationally. And while this may seem odd, it’s very likely that the phone is a local phenomenon, to an extent because it’s obviously being pushed hard by DoCoMo.
