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

  • john.falcone 8/29/2012 1:49:20 PM
    As far as the rumors of what we expect from Sony today:
  • john.falcone 8/29/2012 1:49:30 PM
    possible new Xperia tablet:
  • Pash 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?
  • Roger Cheng 8/29/2012 1:50:17 PM
    @Pash Probably not. Samsung, for instance, has its own scheduled press conference for later today.
  • vD_patel 8/29/2012 1:50:19 PM
    yep me too waiting for note2 :D
  • Windows surface pro 8/29/2012 1:51:57 PM
    Waiting for Sony tablet with windows 8 pro
  • Pash 8/29/2012 1:52:14 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
  • MWKEE 8/29/2012 1:52:30 PM
    GUYS, this is a blog for SONY. Not Samsung. Can we not detract frm SONY's moment?
  • john.falcone 8/29/2012 1:53:38 PM
    Another rumor is an 84-inch 4K TV:
  • Windows surface pro 8/29/2012 1:53:52 PM
    What was the name of sonys windows 8 tab
  • Poikilo 8/29/2012 1:54:14 PM
    What is being shown on the live telecast. My speed is slow
  • Teddysm 8/29/2012 1:54:26 PM
    I'm really curious about the Xperia Nexus
  • john.falcone 8/29/2012 1:54:35 PM
    The other big rumor is a convertible Sony Vaio:
  • Roger Cheng 8/29/2012 1:55:04 PM
    @Teddysm Don't hold your breath.
  • john.falcone 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.
  • john.falcone 8/29/2012 1:55:48 PM
    Their invite for the NY event specifically mentioned "cameras, tablet, and TV."
  • Teddysm 8/29/2012 1:56:21 PM
    @Roger : LOL what for ?
  • MWKEE 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?
  • Teddysm 8/29/2012 1:57:17 PM
    I'm only 17 y.o but I'm a huge fan of Sony. Sony FTW !!!
  • Roger Cheng 8/29/2012 1:57:21 PM
    @Teddysm An Xperia least at IFA. That's highly unlikely.
  • john.falcone 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
  • john.falcone 8/29/2012 1:57:27 PM

  • Dan 8/29/2012 1:57:43 PM

  • john.falcone 8/29/2012 2:01:16 PM
    We're waiting for things to kick off in Berlin
  • Roger Cheng 8/29/2012 2:01:30 PM
    It should be any second now.
  • Poikilo 8/29/2012 2:02:05 PM

  • Roger Cheng 8/29/2012 2:04:06 PM
    It looks like people are still taking their seats, so it might be a little while longer.
  • Teddysm 8/29/2012 2:04:27 PM
    @john.falcone couldn't load it, dunno why :(
  • Dan 8/29/2012 2:04:39 PM
    Can hear music in Sony live conference no video
  • Roger Cheng 8/29/2012 2:04:49 PM
    @Teddysm Some people have had issues loading the stream. It looks like it's hit or miss.
  • john.falcone 8/29/2012 2:04:58 PM
    It's Flash -- maybe needs a browser refresh.
  • Teddysm 8/29/2012 2:05:48 PM
    it's fine now, I see ppl taking there seats :)
  • whencut 8/29/2012 2:06:04 PM
