Avid Android fans are always clamouring for devices to use more stock Android-oriented user interfaces, and on this occasion, it appears Sony is listening. Sony, like many other manufacturers, theme the UI on their mobile devices to add to their branding, much at the behest of Android’s most loyal. However, with Sony’s Concept for Android program, the manufacturer is looking at a new UI with a “stripped back, vanilla Android look and feel”, presumably one day destined for its Xperia devices – and we have to say, we like what we see. Check it out in greater detail below:
Xperia device owners: don’t get too excited just yet. Sony has only just started testing the new UI, asking for the help of 500 Xperia Z3 users in Sweden to not only test the UI itself, but also as a way for Sony to gauge how useful this kind of initiative is for future developments. If you are an Xperia Z3 owner in Sweden, there’s still time to sign up to try this out – all you have to do is sign up through this site. We like this direction that Sony is taking and we hope more manufacturers start to take this more proactive approach of engaging with their customers on contentious issues.
