Late to the party as always. Sony stopped being interesting years ago. They went from being innovators to renovators of old ideas.
They were late with MP3 players, all-in-ones, netbooks, Android phones, and now tablets - to name just a few.
I remember their Trinitron, Walkman, Discman, Minidisc days from before they got old and fat.
