Months ago, Sony started a process of internal reorganization in order to solve their financial problems. In this process, a division was affected laptops (VAIO), which was sold and became independent from the rest of the Japanese company. Today, what remains of the VAIO, has introduced its first Android smartphone, which have called VAIO Phone.
This VAIO Phone features a 5-inch screen with HD resolution, a rear camera megapixel thirteen, quad-core processor at 1.2 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and the latest operating system from Google (Android 5.0 Lollipop). Nothing special, but more than enough for most users.
The design and construction of this VAIO Phone reminds very much of the Nexus 4 manufactured by Google and LG: crystal in the anterior and posterior region, polycarbonate frame, rounded corners, etc. In addition, by having clean Lollipop Android 5.0, the feeling of being in front of a Nexus device family is even greater.
However, the similarities are even greater with the Panasonic Eluga U2. Beside, this VAIO Phone looks like a photocopy, very sad considering that the division of VAIO (when owned by Sony) was always characterized by originality and innovation in most of its products.
This VAIO Phone arrive in the coming weeks to Japan with one of the smaller operators in the country, so visibility is almost zero in the future. However, it is still interesting that both crave VAIO smartphone for many years, the smartphone is priced for ¥51,000, approximately $420.
