A live video stream of this event is available

Welcome to the live blog of Sony's IFA press conference. The actual event starts in about 15 minutes, so hang tight.
8/29/2012 1:47:25 PM
Sony are apparently going to launch an Xperia Tablet so lets hope thats on the cards

Waiting for the Galaxy Note 2 announcement, so I can get rid of my waste of money iphone
8/29/2012 1:49:20 PM
As far as the rumors of what we expect from Sony today:
8/29/2012 1:49:30 PM
possible new Xperia tablet:
8/29/2012 1:49:59 PM
Know if the live feed (from Sony's website) will also show other companies showing of their products?
8/29/2012 1:50:17 PM
@Pash Probably not. Samsung, for instance, has its own scheduled press conference for later today.
8/29/2012 1:50:19 PM

@Roger Cheng Ah ok, yeah, I'm slightly more interested in Samsung's conference (Waiting for Note2 and JB on S3) Thanks though :D
8/29/2012 1:52:30 PM
GUYS, this is a blog for SONY. Not Samsung. Can we not detract frm SONY's moment?
8/29/2012 1:53:38 PM
Another rumor is an 84-inch 4K TV:

What was the name of sonys windows 8 tab
8/29/2012 1:54:14 PM
What is being shown on the live telecast. My speed is slow
8/29/2012 1:54:26 PM
I'm really curious about the Xperia Nexus
8/29/2012 1:54:35 PM
The other big rumor is a convertible Sony Vaio:
8/29/2012 1:55:04 PM
@Teddysm Don't hold your breath.
8/29/2012 1:55:28 PM
To add to the intrigue: this presser starts in Berlin at 10am ET [5 mins from now]. But at 11am, Sony is having a parallel event in NYC.
8/29/2012 1:55:48 PM
Their invite for the NY event specifically mentioned "cameras, tablet, and TV."
8/29/2012 1:56:21 PM
@Roger : LOL what for ?
8/29/2012 1:56:48 PM
Oh, sound exciting. Is that NYV event streamed live too? If so, does anyone have the link to it?
8/29/2012 1:57:17 PM
I'm only 17 y.o but I'm a huge fan of Sony. Sony FTW !!!
8/29/2012 1:57:21 PM
@Teddysm An Xperia Nexus...at least at IFA. That's highly unlikely.
8/29/2012 1:57:21 PM
No stream for the NY event, but we hope to backfill any and all relevant news from there
8/29/2012 1:57:27 PM
very soon after it starts
8/29/2012 1:57:43 PM
How do u make this blog screen larger anyone?
8/29/2012 2:01:16 PM
We're waiting for things to kick off in Berlin
8/29/2012 2:01:30 PM
It should be any second now.
8/29/2012 2:02:05 PM
A pic would be nice.
8/29/2012 2:02:34 PM
8/29/2012 2:02:40 PM
@Poikilo We'll upload pics as soon as we get them.
8/29/2012 2:02:46 PM

8/29/2012 2:02:48 PM

It looks like people are still taking their seats, so it might be a little while longer.
8/29/2012 2:04:27 PM
@john.falcone couldn't load it, dunno why :(
8/29/2012 2:04:39 PM
Can hear music in Sony live conference no video
8/29/2012 2:04:49 PM
@Teddysm Some people have had issues loading the stream. It looks like it's hit or miss.
8/29/2012 2:04:58 PM
It's Flash -- maybe needs a browser refresh.
8/29/2012 2:05:48 PM

8/29/2012 2:06:04 PM
