CES 2013 Preview: 20 Hot Technologies, Rumors And Gadgets

Sony Xperia Z

We keep waiting for Sony to get its groove back in the consumer electronics market. So will this be the year? Maybe. Sony is rumored to have a new Android smartphone dubbed the Xperia Z (previously named the Yuga). The Xperia Z is a larger smartphone with a 5-inch display (a common theme at this year's CES is super-sized smartphones or "phablets"). Along with a big display with full 1080p high-definition visuals, the device runs on Qualcomm's new APQ8064 quad-core processor and comes with 2 GB of RAM (which is more than the newest iPad).
