Apple, Google‘s phones and Samsung have long ruled the roost when it comes to slow-motion video, offering smooth 240fps support. Sure, we’ve seen the likes of Lenovo claim 960fps as a standard, but this was via ineffective software trickery.

Now, Sony has laid the foundation down for super slow-motion, announcing a new smartphone sensor capable of shooting at 1000fps.

Whether viewed as a bright idea or simply a gimmicky gadget, there is no denying that Sony has tried to think of everything with its latest smart home product.

Well that was quick. It’s only been a couple of days since someone came up with anunofficial app to stream PlayStation 4 gaming to PC, but earlier today, Sony’s awesomeShuhei Yoshida confirmed on Twitter that his company is “indeed working on an official [Remote Play] application for PC/Mac.” Yes, it will support both Windows and Mac OS X, which is already more than what the Xbox One offers, though Yoshida has yet to provide a date. Regardless, this is bad news for the unofficial app’s developer, who has apparently been working on this project on and off for over a year and planned on charging $10 for the hard work, but at least we can give him or her some credit for getting Sony to up the game for its consoles.

We were hoping the excellent Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact would put an end to Sony’s minor biannual update schedule, but it seems both handsets have only been partially successful in breaking Sony’s bad habits. While it’s been more than six months since Sony last launched another flagship phone, it hasn’t yet shaken off the urge to make incremental changes rather than pull a Samsung, for example, and deliver something completely new and fresh.

If you truly love taking selfies, you know that the quality of the front camera is clutch for a great shot. Sony’s latest smartphone, the Xperia C4 PROselfie, features an extra-wide-angle lens on the front shooter, hopefully making it unnecessary to employ a selfie stick. The 25mm-equivalent lens also has a flash, naturally, so you’ll be well lit-up.

SONY HAS UNVEILED the Xperia E4, a not-so-exciting Android 4.4.4 Kitkat-powered smartphone.

Arriving just a few months after the Xperia E3, the Xperia E4 ups the ante, albeit slightly, in the specifications department.

The smartphone has a larger 5in 960×540 IPS LCD display, powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek chip and Google’s now-dated Android 4.4.4 Kitkat software.

Despite the fact that Sony has crafted some of the better Android hardware that we’ve seen in recent years, the company’s mobile division hasn’t seen much commercial success. Now it looks like Sony is thinking about taking action with its mobile arm.

According to a report from Reuters, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai is considering a sale of its mobile phone division — as well as its TV group — or some kind of joint venture. There aren’t any deals in the works right now, but a source says that Sony’s higher-ups know that “no business is forever” and that “every segment now needs to understand that Sony can exit businesses.”
