Sony Announces Worldwide Android Lollipop Rollout For The Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, And Xperia Z3 Tablet

Sony Announces Worldwide Android Lollipop Rollout For The Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, And Xperia Z3 Tablet

Xperia owners, watch out. Lollipops are raining from the sky and smashing straight into your screens. If you welcome this phenomenon, don't do anything. These lollipops have heat-seeking sensors and will find your devices wherever they lay. If you prefer KitKat, you can swat the intruders away, but you'll never get to experience the future changes in store for your Android device.

Sony has confirmed that it is launching lollipops at Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, and Z3 Tablet Compact devices all over the world (some of these updates were previously pushed out to smaller, test markets). The manufacturer plans to open fire on the Z2 and Z2 Tablet starting next week.

Sony Shows Off AOSP Lollipop Builds For The Xperia Z1, Z2, And Z3

Sony Shows Off AOSP Lollipop Builds For The Xperia Z1, Z2, And Z3

Sony's back to its AOSP tricks, working to release some functional (if not exactly ideal) versions of the latest release of Android based on open-source code. This time they've quickly put together Android Open Source Project builds for the flagships of the last two years: the Xperia Z1, Z2, and Z3. You can see the bone-stock builds running in the video below.

As always with Sony's developer promotions, these builds aren't intended for end users - they aren't provided with any kind of promise for reliability or functionality. They don't even include the Play Store or other standard apps, which many people (erroneously) think of as part of "stock" Android.

Sony Expands Folding@Home Compatibility To Lollipop And Non-Xperia Devices, Though It's Still Incompatible With Many

Sony Expands [email protected] Compatibility To Lollipop And Non-Xperia Devices, Though It's Still Incompatible With Many

Sony's [email protected] app turns your Android device into a weapon in the war against diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's by contributing your spare computing power to research. It entered the Play Store in early January as a beta exclusively available to certain Xperia phones. Now Sony is expanding the experience to other hardware, including devices running Android Lollipop.

Here you can see [email protected] running on my HTC One M7, a non-Sony device with the latest version of Android.

While it's nice to see [email protected] opened up, the app is still incompatible with tablets and slightly older devices such as the Nexus 4, the Galaxy Nexus, and the Galaxy Note II (the Nexus 5 and the Note 3 are supported though).
