Sony Plans To Revolutionize The TV Industry

Sony has finally decided to move on from traditional TV sets. In a recent speech at a breakfast, Sony CEO Howard Stinger has said that Sony is at the verge of launching a next-generation TV. Will Sony be able to get back it’s winning position in the TV industry?

Apple has long been planning to introduce an entirely new version of TV. According to reports, Apple started working on as far back as 2007. However, there has been no word from Apple since and analysts think that Apple may make the launch when the prices of  flat screens fall. What is known for sure is that Steve Jobs had plans of using Siri voice commands in designing the new generation of TVs. The new technology can make the TV understand the voice commands and then act accordingly.

Meanwhile, Sony has refused to back down from the industry which it once ruled. The redundancy of the traditional TV sets has made them out-of-date and they are no longer in demand. Sony’s CEO Howard Stinger claims that his company realizes this challenge and is all set to churn out in the market exactly what is needed – a brand-new generation of TVs. How exactly the new TV sets developed by Sony will be different from the older sets, Howard didn’t tell. But he seemed very confident when speaking at a breakfast hosted by The Wall Street Journal and claimed that the final product will be released very soon. “It’s finished, and it’s launching now’ he is reported to have said.

Tough competition for Sony:
The tight spot for Sony, if Apple also launches it’s TV, will be that Apple has a knack for design-savvy products. And that has always given it a superior edge. We have seen iPhone get the better of Blackberry and Android phones. So can Sony compete Apple now that Jobs is no longer the brain behind Apple? That remains to be seen.

    The usual pro-Apple bias from TheTechJournal scribes…

    For your info, Sony has its own “design savvy”, preferred by some to Apple’s inhalation of an old Braun designer.

    Apple’s designs are good by reduction.  This is not a new style and not invented by Apple, so get over “the brains” behind Apple… they just copy and polish well and also don’t shy away from trying to patent prior art, while walking all over other people’s patents when they can get away with it.

    So there’s this insane Apple hype right now, rivaling the size of the debt crisis…  fine.
    That too will pass, I just wish people would stop hyperventilating.

    The good thing about Apple’s stuff is, that they polish user interfaces to where they don’t make people angry about having to fiddle with settings; “they just work” (most of the time) but at the cost of only being able to do what Jobs planned for you to do.

    Aren’t you guys getting tired of “Apple this, Apple that”, as if they were the retarded center of western society?

    LOL a news item about poor Sony and all these schmucks do is talk about Apple and provide links to more Apple hype. 

    Soon this Apple-itis is going to be recognized as a clinical condition worth a monthly prescription of Lithium…
