Sony Xperia Z4 Announced In Japan With Snapdragon 810, 1080p 5.2" Screen, IP68 Waterproofing With Cap-Less USB Port, And Sony's Signature Design

Back at MWC, while everyone was waiting for Sony to announce its follow-up flagship, the Xperia Z4, the company decided to keep it under wraps and instead unveiled the mid-range Xperia M4 Aqua and the Xperia Z4 Tablet. Today, the phone has finally been made official in Sony's home turf of Japan during a press conference that made all of the Z4's details public but left out any information regarding its global release or price.

The Xperia Z4 follows the same design as its predecessors, which can be a good or a bad thing depending on how you look at it. The squarish shape, metal frame, and glass back are part of the brand's identity, but at the same time they're iterative and have become boring.

Dell Announces Venue 10, An Education-Focused Tablet That Will Run Lollipop

As part of a series of education-oriented product announcements, Dell is introducing the Venue 10, a Lollipop-enabled Android tablet. The device, which will have a "Pro" sibling that runs Windows 8.1, is set to debut in the spring and will be Google Apps for Education certified. While it will fall short of being a high-end tablet and may not have wide availability, it does have a few cool features.

Dell's release says the Venue 10 line will have "HD or Full HD" 10.1 inch screens, making it unclear whether these will be options or if the 1080p display will apply only to the Pro model.

ASUS Rocks CES With The Low-Price, High-Spec ZenFone 2: 4GB RAM, Lollipop, And Flagship Looks Starting At $199

Despite some impressive tablet, laptop, and combination devices, ASUS has left its smartphones mostly in the budget and mid-range end of the pool. That changes with the Zenfone 2 announcement at CES: while the new device probably won't set the world on fire, it's a definite competitor to offerings from the likes of HTC, Samsung, and LG at an amazing price. The ZenFone 2 is the first phone anywhere to be equipped with 4GB of dual-channel RAM (on the high-end model), and the rest of the specs are no slouch either.

The phone is impressively styled, with a brushed metal body that tapers to just 3.9mm on the edges, not unlike the Moto X.

Huawei Begins To Sell Directly To US Consumers With The Ascend Mate 2, Now Up For Pre-Order For $299

Huawei is huge in China, but their footprint in the US smartphone market is tiny, and not helped because they tend to be on the low end of any carrier lineup they do manage to snag. That ends today, as the company is now selling directly to consumers in the United States for the first time. The Ascend Mate 2, a big-screen, big-battery midrange phone, is up for pre-order on GetHuawei.com. The unlocked GSM-LTE phone is going for $299 in black and white color options.

For three Benjamins, you get a phone with a gigantic 6.1" screen, a 3900mAh battery (down slightly from the one at CES) rated at 25 hours of talk time, a 13 megapixel rear camera with a 5MP front-facing cam, and...

LG Volt Zaps Its Way Onto Boost Mobile And Virgin Mobile For $179.99

The LG Volt, as a low cost phone destined to be sold with no contract, is shocking more in the static electricity way than, say, a bolt of lighting. But in the moment immediately following touching a doorknob after dragging your feet around too much on the carpet, who really cares? At $179.99, the Volt should hit a number of users with enough juice to keep them going starting today on Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile.

The phone, which is a rebranded LG F90, offers a 1.2ghz quad-core Snapdragon processor, a 4.7-inch IPS display, an 8MP rear-facing camera, and a 1.3MP front-facing one.

[MWC 2014] ZTE Shows Off The Grand Memo II LTE: Bigger, Thinner, With A Side Of KitKat

The phablet market is exploding, and just about every manufacturer wants a piece of the oversized pie. Here at Mobile World Congress ZTE has just announced the Grand Memo II LTE, the successor to last year's Grand Memo. It ups the screen size to a full 6 inches of IPS goodness. Well, maybe goodness  - they aren't saying what the resolution is just yet, just "HD," which I'll assume means 720p.

The phone itself is impressively thin, even accounting for the fact that larger phones have more surface area to cram all those guts in. At just 7.2mm, it's as thin as some of the phones aimed at fashionistas.

HTC Desire Comes To Virgin Mobile, Get This Affordable HTC One Look-Alike Now For $279 Off-Contract

Competition is really heating up in the low cost, off-contract smartphone market these days. Motorola's Moto G, revealed just last week, is the meteor that could potentially change the landscape here in the US when it strikes early next year, offering specs that far exceed anything we've been conditioned to expect for $179. But that's the future. As for now, Americans looking for an affordable but capable off-contract handset can now pick up the HTC Desire (or, more specifically, the HTC Desire 601) from Virgin Mobile for $279.

Verizon's Casio G'zOne Commando LTE Is Official, Ready To Take A Beating On Thursday, June 27th For $100 On Contract

If you habitually rock climb, scuba dive, ski cross-country, or do any of the things you might regularly see on a heath food or Viagra commercial, you're probably in the market for a ruggedized smartphone. And if you're on Verizon, your options have been somewhat limited as of late (try not to drool over AT&T's shiny new Galaxy S4 Active, please). Verizon just made the Casio G'zOne Commando LTE official: it's a super-sturdy Android device in the same vein as the former Commando and the G-Shock watch line. It will launch on Thursday for $99.99, after a $50 mail-in rebate on-contract.
