The rearmost company to remove the bowl from its smartphone boxes is Sony. Still, it seems that the move, at least for now, is limited to the Xperia 10 III.
Sony’s German arm has let us know that going forward, in some retail channels the Xperia 10 III’ll be offered without a bowl, for a recommended deals price that will be reduced by€ 10. In other channels, the phone will still arrive with a bowl, however.
It’s nice of Sony to actually reduce the price consequently, unlike other companies doing the same thing, that is for sure. The reason for the move is vague but has to do with icing“the continued force“of the Xperia 10 III. Typically then we would condemn the chip extremity-but we have not heard of it affecting dishes, at least so far.
It’ll be intriguing to see if this starts a trend in Sony’s smartphone arm. First of all, whether it spreads to other countries away from Germany, and also to other models too maybe. We will keep you posted.
