We talk with the heads of Sony Mobile's Tokyo design team about the creative process, new devices, and differences across countries. The lead phone from 2012's lineup, Iconic Identity, is the Xperia SX; a 3.7-inch marquee Android device for Japan.
Sony has made published the Xperia S binaries, resources necessary to bring a stable, native Android experience to the Xperia S as part of the Android Open Source Project.
Google is experimenting with expanded support of the Sony Xperia S. Google is looking to work with the community to directly support the Xperia S within the AOSP in a manner that's similar to how Google works with Nexus-class devices.
Supposed leaked renders of the Sony Xperia SL have made their way onto the web. The device is said to have a 1.7GHz Qualcomm S3 processor and more color options than the Xperia S.
A Sony support representative has confirmed that the Xperia S Ice Cream Sandwich update will be released in late May to early June.
The PlayStation Suite open beta has begun. Developers can now download the free SDK, which will allow them to create apps and games for the PS Vita and PlayStation Certified devices.

As is typical for many manufacturers, Sony released the obligatory open source archive for its latest phone, the Xperia S. In a blog post, Sony explicitly called out custom ROM developers and provided technical details for how to build ROMs for the Xperia S.
Undeterred by the negative reaction to the Xperia S launching with Gingerbread on board, Sony is adding yet another smartphone to the ranks of Android 2.3 handsets: the Xperia Sola.
Sony has announced that the PlayStation Suite SDK will go into open beta in April, and promised to bring a range of content to the mobile platform throughout the year.
Ice Cream Sandwich's slow growth continues, as the OS makes up just 1.6 percent of all Android devices.
