The Sony Xperia Z Google Edition will most likely feature Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, unless Google changes its mind and launches Android 4.3 Jelly Bean by the time the handset is officially announced. Of course, the Xperia Z Google Edition will be part of the the same update schedule that includes the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition and the HTC One Google Edition.

 

The Sony Xperia Z Google Edition will be developed on the same hardware platform of the original Xperia Z. The Sony Xperia Z Google Edition will boast the same 5-inch TFT display with a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels covered by a shatter proof and scratch-resistant glass. It will also come with IP57 cretification - dust and water resistant, being water resistant up to 1 meter and 30 minutes.

 

Obviously it will be identical to the non-Google Edition Xperia Z in terms of specs. Pricing info hasn't been leaked, but a $599 price point is being rumored. Release date is rumored for July.



According to Business Insider, Google may be planning its own retail stores. While we've heard this kind of rumor before, what makes this claim truly interesting is that the retail front supposedly will only feature Google Glass.  When briefed on this story, Google said, "we don't plan to comment on rumor or speculation."


Google Glass is quite a bit different than other mobile computing devices out there, which could make for a sharp learning curve. Having a retail presence for Glass could be an important way to train new owners, educate about Glass, and even help some folks get over the fear or distrust of it.


Right now it's sending out Glass to developers as part of its "Explorer" program. Developers pay $1,500 for Glass. They then test Glass, and build applications, helping Google figure out how Glass is really going to work.
