Sony Mobile company is not successful in getting out of long-term loss nor counts of sold phones are not growing in dizzying pace,
but as for approach to the community, we are probably talking about a best producer in the market. Producer is publishing direct codes for new firmware versions
directly on their website, and soon they are going to run public testing of Android 5.0 Lollipop for models XPERIA Z3 and Z3 Compact.
Of course, everything is a bit complicated. Testing, in fact, is going to take place only in Sweden, entitled 3beta,
which is relating to a main partner of company Sony Mobile within this experiment, which is operator Three Sweden.
It's customers can apply to a test through web form and subsequently even selected customers will participate on a meeting with representatives of Sony Mobile.
Chosen customers will be enabled to test Android 5.0 Lollipop even sooner than producer officially release it for their phones,
which is of course very attractive offer. Though restriction for a country and operator is not very pleasant, community will be pleasured.
This way producer itself will get feedback for free and will be able to optimize the system as much as possible even before official launching.
On the basis of the result of this experiment, company Sony Mobile will allegedly consider whether they should widen it to other countries or models.
But question remains, how well will the producer secure the phones in order to not to widen the testing wersion uncontrollably.
Personally I believe it will happen and I think, that testing version is going to get out really soon. Myself I am going to participate on that and as soon we get someone,
who has a phone equipped that way, it should not be impossible to pull out the operating system. Would you attend such a testing?
Personally I would not hesitate a second, yet to Sweden it is too far.
