No matter what it turns out to be, a new handset announcement can always be a fun time. Sony is putting a little twist on how they will be announcing its new Xperia handset by putting that announcement date into the hands of the fans.
Initially set to be announced on the 22nd of this month, the Sony Xperia Facebook page allows a fan to “fast forward” the announcement time. With over 24,000 fans hitting that fast forward button on the page, the announcement is now set to take place in less than 20 hours from now. This way of engaging the users is rather smart, and even if the handset does turn out to be a mid-range handset that one would easily overlook to get their hands on the Xperia S, it’s the experience that counts.
Whatever the handset turns out to be, it’ll be remembered as a cool announcement at very least. We’re going to go out on a limb and assume that the handset likely isn’t any sort of high-end flagship device, as we’d also assume that Sony might have wanted to make a press event out of it.
Either way, if you want to move the announcement time even closer, head over to the Facebook page right here and speed up time!
