    Sony's Xperia Z Takes Away a Ton of Awards From CES; Including 'Star of CES'


    The new Sony Xperia Z is running away with a ton of awards from CES. One of these awards was even the TechnoBuffalo "all around star" of CES. Here's a quote with more detailed info on many of the awards it received,

    According to a Sony Mobile count, the Z grabbed no less than 10 “major” awards in the aftermath of CES 2013, as well as two honorable mentions. Probably the most flattering of all came from TechnoBuffalo, the online publication that named the 5-inch phone the all-around star of CES (as in better than not only other mobile devices, but also cars, computers, TVs, blenders and what have you).

    There’ve been also five “best cell phone” titles awarded to the Xperia Z, from Tech Radar, Laptop Magazine, Gotta Be Mobile, PC Pro and Mobile Geeks. Popular Mechanics included it in its Editor’s Choice Awards along with 13 other products, Stuff.TV put it on top of its Hot Stuff Awards, while Ubergizmo and Computer Active’s Best of CES lists also accommodated various other gadgets.

    Finally, the phablet got nominated in both Cnet’s Best of CES Awards and TechnoBuffalo’s CES Reader’s Choice Awards. Neither of the two trophies was brought home by the Xperia Z, but the nominations stand and Sony should be proud of that. The second nod in particular, because the Z was the only phone on the 10 product shortlist.
    It's not surprising that the new superphone from Sony is winning a large number of awards. It's impressive array of technology and enhancements really put it in a league of its own at CES and in the mobile world. Here's a recap of specs for the new flagship from Sony:
    • 5-inch Full HD 1080 x 1920 Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2
    • 13MP fast capture camera with Exmor RS for mobile & HDR video
    • Dust & water resistant (IP55 & IP57)
    • 1.5 GHz asynchronous quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 2GB
    • Battery STAMINA mode improves standby time by at least four times
    • One-touch mirroring
    • 4G LTE for superfast entertainment
    • Glass-back
    • Dust and Water Resistant
    • Slightly Larger Design Footprint
    • Slightly Thinner than the ZL at 7.9mm
    • 2,400mAh battery non-removable battery
    • A microSD Card slot

    What do you guys think? Would you be happy to see this phone come to your carrier? Is it finally time to start looking at Sony again?

    Maybe I'll look at it when it gets released in a store somewhere. Just not the biggest fan of Sony stuff.

    My only question is:

    Is it dust and water resistant?

    Sorry, couldn't resist.
