Sony Twin Rumor: iPhone 5 Camera & Android Tablet
We are having a heyday here with the twin rumors that Sony’s CEO Sir Howard Stringer has inadvertently revealed. First regarding the future yet-to-be-released iPhone 5. The CEO revealed that Sony will be supplying the next iPhone’s camera during an interview with the Wall Street Journal. Not just that, he also mentioned that the camera will be a 5 MP one. Apparently, the switch is happening because of the expected delays in the currently used OmniVision cameras’ production that takes place in Japan.
The second piece of news is even juicier! He has also confirmed that Sony will be releasing its Android Honeycomb tablet by the end of the summer. What makes this leak even sweeter and something to really anticipate is the potential design that this Android tablet may sport. As per the patent Sony filed some time back, it may sport either the “wrap around” design, pictured on the left above, or the clamshell design, pictured on the right. Although Sony has distanced itself from the CEO’s revelations in the sense that it did not promise a concrete date, everything put together tickles my tech bone! We ‘ll just have to wait and see, won’t we? What do you think?
