Join us to see maybe phones, tablets, watches and more
Rounding out the first day of activity at IFA 2014 is Sony with its traditional Wednesday afternoon press conference. The slot is familiar but this year Sony is in a new home at the Messe Berlin, inhabiting the enormous Hall 20 previously used by Samsung. And in these new larger surroundings we're anticipating a bunch of new product introductions.
As is often the way leading up to a Sony press conference there have been some official teasers and some unofficial leaks and rumors. Either way we're potentially looking at a new phone, the Xperia Z3, a new tablet, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, and the Smartwatch 3.
Sony's presser isn't mobile focused, either, so throughout the presentation we'll probably be hearing about TVs, cameras and even perhaps some PlayStation. Everything kicks off at 4:00 p.m. local time which translates to 3.00 p.m. UTC, 10:00 a.m. EST and 7:00 a.m. PST. Be sure to join us in the liveblog below!
