Box giving LG and Ericsson Android users the cloud love.

How does 50GB of cloud storage sound to you? Would it sound even better if it was free? 50GB of free cloud storage, say it’s true! Yes, Virginia it is indeed true. Box is offering up a slice of their cloud service, on the house, to owners of LG and Sony Ericsson Android phones. That’s a lot of..ahem…art films to watch at your leisure. Or photos, documents, pdfs, I mean really the sky’s the limit here. Well to be precise 50GB is the limit here but you geeks get the idea.
LG is already set up for users to partake of this bounty, they can head over to the Android Market to download the app. Once they sign up, everything should be ready to rumble. Sony is planning on hammering everything out soon, presumably by year’s end. The process will be the same as LG’s: download, install, sign up, float away in the cloud. Recently, Box handed out this perk to users of the iVariety of devices. It’s nice to see they haven’t forgot about the rest of the world. The only question left, what about other phones? Samsung, perhaps?
Verizon Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Pre-Order Starting May 17th

Verizon just announced a few hours ago that pre-orders for the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, or PSP phone, would be starting on May 17th. They also said that the phone would be available for pick up on May 26th at the price of $199.99. The Xperia PLAY will be running Gingerbread on a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdraon 2 processor with a Adreno 205 GPU. It also has a 4-inch multi-touch screen and a slide-out gaming pad similar to the PSP. In case that wasn’t enough it has a VGA front-facing camera for those video chats, and a 5-megapixel rear camera.
I played with one of these phones at I/O and it was pretty slick. If I hadn’t just got the Thunderbolt then this would definitely be a possibility for me. The games run very smooth and with great graphics, I played Crash Bandicoot and it was epic. I recommend at least going to play with one when it comes out. Follow the break for the press release.
Android phones getting better update structure

Day one of the Google I/O event, Google announced a new coalition of carriers and OEMS. The initial members being AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, Samsung, HTC, Sony Ericsson, LG, Vodafone and Motorola. The group’s goal is to work out the logistics of keeping all Android powered phones on a 18 month guaranteed support window. The committee will provide timely OS updates to hardware capable phones inside this window.
Hardware capable designation will be left to the handset manufacturers, adhering to Google’s specifications. Of course, this will leave quite a few older generation mobiles out in the dust but should keep more newer generation models up to date. Moving forward, hopefully this tackles the fragmentation issue that Android phones deal with.
Sony Xperia Neo Launch Delayed, PLAY And Arc Volumes Affected By Japan Quake

Hopefully you haven’t been dying to get your hands on a Sony Xperia Neo because you will have to wait a little longer than expected. Sony Ericsson on Friday released a statement that says the product will be delayed until the 3rd quarter because of supply chain disruptions due to the Japan earthquake. Both the PLAY and Arc were affected also but not enough to delay the launches. Here is the official statement:
As Sony Ericsson continues to assess the impact of the situation in Japan on its business, we have communicated to our operator customers and distributors that some volume of Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY and Xperia neo phones has been affected. Xperia neo has already been introduced to the marketplace in limited quantities. However, due to supply chain disruptions resulting from the situation in Japan, we have shifted the timing of Xperianeo’s broader launch and it is now planned for early Q3.
We will address this topic at the time of our Q1 financial results announcement call that is scheduled for April 19, 2011.
