Sony

Sony's got a new Xperia smartphone on the horizon, and it's willing to bring its announcement date forward in exchange for a few "likes" on Facebook. At present, all will be revealed next Thursday, June 21, but the company's calling on fans to press a "fast forward" button to bring the announcement forward (naturally, liking the promotion or sharing with friends will also speed things up.) There's also the chance to win the mysterious device, if you're up for clicking a few more buttons and entering your email address.

Given the level of buzz Sony is looking to create, we see only one likely candidate for the "next Xperia," as it's being called -- an international version of the Xperia GX, perhaps under a different name.  A new flagship product, the GX is currently slated to arrive in Japan next month, so an international variant would be expected to follow. It'd also back up reports of a device codenamed "LT29i" or "Hayabusa," which reportedly features a spec list identical to the GX. According to a Sony roadmap which leaked earlier in the year, the Hayabusa was targeted for a July launch, which would fit perfectly with the announcement window.

We'll keep you posted whenever Sony announces its next big thing. Hit the source link if you want to press buttons and move forward a giant animated clock.

"Blackboser ! That sounds like a **x game! " Jermmy Clarkson ...lol

I hope they bring something big though

Perhaps the seemingly long-forgotten Xperia ION for AT&T ?

I hope it's finally a good Xperia for Verizon. I've been craving a Sony device, but all the good ones are released in Europe and Asia and we see nothing :(

Nice to see a mfg following the Android guidelines and getting rid of the dedicated buttons. I'll be interested to see what they release and if it's compelling enough to choose it over the GS3.
