The Sony Xperia Z2 is a flagship device that many end users and developers have been waiting for. A powerful CPU and many unique features make it one of the most interesting phones of the first half of 2014. The device will be soon available to buy in many countries and its development community surely will flourish like previous “Z” devices.
Developers working with Sony devices will be happy to know that a few days ago the GPL-mandated open source files were released for these devices. (Yes, that GPL. *cough* Micromax and MediaTek *cough*.) And thanks to the release, developers such as the FXP group will be able to release unofficial kernels and recoveries soon.

Though Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress has yet to formally come to a close for the year, the majority of significant announcements have already come to light. This year, Sony announced two flagship devices, the Xperia Z2 and the Xperia Z2 Tablet.
The Xperia Z2 is Sony’s successor to last year’s Xperia Z1. Building on the strengths of the previous device, the Z2 packs pretty much everything that made the Z1 great. It also brings several key improvements such as a significantly improved display, a slightly speedier quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, and 4k video recording. The Z2 Tablet then takes much of these specs and delivers them in tablet form.
