LONDON, December 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --



  • New entertainment application with exclusive content and competitions across Music, Film, Gaming and Sports  
  • Launching with amazing firsts from Coldplay, Swedish House Mafia and FIFA

Sony Mobile Communications today announced the Beta release of Xperia Lounge - a new Android application available to download from Google Play - that gives users backstage access to a world of Sony entertainment and VIP experiences direct from their smartphone.

Xperia Lounge is a destination for accessing new content from Sony's world-class portfolio of partners and sponsors on a smartphone. It contains a diverse and regularly updated selection of content across music, sports, films and gaming that will appeal to a wide audience and can be activated anywhere across the world. Consumers will be able to enter competitions to win tickets to experiences such as concerts, movie premieres or sporting events. It will also allow consumers to stream live concerts, get exclusive behind the scenes footage for new films, access music and even meet celebrities. In the future users will also be able to personalize the app so that they get access to the content that interests them the most.

Stephan Croix, marketing director at Sony Mobile Communications said,"The Xperia Lounge gives consumers access to unique entertainment experiences which only Sony can deliver. It is part of our wider mission to engage with consumers in a more intimate way by creating immersive experiences on their Xperia smartphone wherever they are."

Xperia Lounge is launching with exclusive content from Coldplay, the chance to win tickets to see Swedish House Mafia on their farewell worldwide tour and later in the year an opportunity to attend FIFA events such as the Confederations Cup and the FIFA Interactive World Cup.

Xperia Lounge is designed for all Android users but only owners of an Xperia smartphone can access all the experiences including VIP and streaming mobile content. Owners of other Android smartphones can download the free app, enter competitions and enjoy experiences provided they register through Sony's channels on Facebook, Google + or Sony Mobile.com.

Xperia Lounge will be available in 11 languages from launch including English, French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese and Indonesian with more languages added in the future.

Sony Mobile recently released its new range of One-touch enabled Xperia smartphones, Xperia T, Xperia J and Xperia V.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
