Sony's (SNE +2.2%) flagship Xperia Z Android phone is off to a strong start: Digitimes reports initial volumes allocated for Japan, France, Germany, Hong Kong, and Taiwan fully sold out on the first day of pre-sale orders. The Verge just gave the Xperia Z a score of 7.2/10: it's likes the Z's sleek design, waterproofing, headphones, and battery life-boosting Stamina mode, but not its camera and ergonomics. Sony is hoping to sell 50M smartphones in FY13 (ends in March), up from 34M in FY12. (previous)

    This is could be the dark horse winner of this year...new management, new CEO., sales of real estate boosting profits, new playstation 4, strong renewed presence in mobile phones and tablets.
    As one analyst said, the parts are worth more than the sum total!!
    If yen continues to decline, this stock could easily double within one year.
    I rest my case....read my comments when green mountain was at $18 a few months ago

    The Verge reviewer of the XPERIA Z has been well-known since his Engadget days of having an anti-Sony bias. If the phone had been called the "iPhone Z", it would have scored at least a 9.0/10.0.
