Sony launches ‘Concept for Android’ initiative in Sweden for 500 Xperia Z3 users

Sony have announced that they are launching a new initiative in Sweden to give 500 Xperia Z3 users the chance to try Sony’s Concept for Android – a concept operating system with a fresh take on user experience based on Android 5.1, Lollipop.

It has some significant differences compared to the current commercial releases, with a stripped back, vanilla Android look and feel, with native Sony features and apps.

“This trial will help us assess the potential of running wider Android operating system concept initiatives for more markets, devices and users in the future – as we look to shift towards a model that allows for the creation of experiences with real user input, whilst adopting more transparent and open workflows. We believe this will eventually enable us to respond to your needs quicker and easier.”

If you’re an Xperia Z3 user based in Sweden and want to get involved, check out the Xperia Lounge application to read full details, terms and conditions and register.

As the initiative is limited to 500 places, users will be selected on a first come, first serve basis – successful applicants will be notified over the coming weeks.
