Sony have no plans to use Android Wear, at least not for now

Last updated:

Ravi Nookala, head of Sony Mobile’s US business, has stated that Sony plans to use its own technology for the foreseeable future:

‘We’ve already invested time and resources on this platform, and we will continue in that direction.’

Sony wasn’t on the original list of Android Wear partners and as such, the statement comes as no surprise. However, Sony followed up the comments with a statement that keeps the door open just a little.

‘We’re excited about the potential of Android Wear to extend the mobile OS experience into wearable devices,’ it said. ‘While we are currently focused on our in-market wearable offering, including SmartWatch 2, we continue to work closely with Google as a key partner and continue to evaluate opportunities across a number of areas as we extend our SmartWear Experience.’

It appears it’s a case of seeing where both SmartWatches go
and where Android Wear goes before making a final decision.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]
