Sony recently reported its results for the quarter ending 30 June 2019. For those hoping that the launch of the Xperia 1 would help lift sales, then you'd be disappointed to here that volumes fell by 55 percent year-on-year to just 0.9 million phones – Sony managed 2.0 million phones the year before. Sony's struggles are still very much real, although the launch of the Xperia 1 only happened at the end of May, so we may see a bounce in the subsequent quarter.
The summer heat can sometimes get so unbearable where even a fan does little to nothing to cool us down, only ending up circulating the hot air in the process. However, if you’re in need of something a little stronger, Sony just might have the device for you in the form of the Reon Pocket, a wearable air conditioner that fits right in your pocket.
Now, the Reon Pocket will need a specially designed shirt in order to be clipped onto, and it can be activated or deactivated by using your smartphone and an accompanying app. It will sit on your neck where it will help to keep you cool during those hot summer days. That being said, the entire setup doesn’t exactly come cheap.
Sony has confirmed a new online broadcast for tomorrow. Dubbed “State of Play,” the company will announce new games, show new trailers for the first time, and provide fans updates on the new titles in the pipeline for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation VR.
The idea for this broadcast might feel familiar to you if you regularly follow gaming-related news. Nintendo essentially does the same thing with its Nintendo Direct presentations. It divides announcements in multiple broadcasts throughout the year instead of making a big appearance at an industry event like E3.
