Developer World website upgrades

As you can see, we have now started the process of upgrading the Developer World website. Yesterday we got new colours and styling, and going forward we’ll be looking at bigger improvements in the design and functionality of the site. Read on to find out more, and to learn why you might see some extensive use of animated retro gifs saying “Under construction”.

Yes, finally we have gotten use out of our favourite ”Under construction” image, as we are now starting to upgrade the Developer World website. Besides the changes you see today, you will start to see smaller and bigger tweaks in the information structure, functionality and layout of the site during the spring. Our goal is to make the site even clearer, more accessible and most interesting, and we will do all of these updates with all of you developers and technology enthusiasts in mind.

In addition to the changes to the Developer World website today, we are also making changes to our developer Twitter and YouTube channels. If you’re interested in following us on Twitter, you should go to twitter.com/sonyxperiadev from now on. To see our latest videos, visit our YouTube channel at youtube.com/sonyxperiadev.

Now, while we do the updates to the Developer World website, we might get some minor glitches. We will do our utmost to minimise these disturbances, but if you encounter anything, feel free to drop us a comment and we will look into it as soon as possible.

We hope you will like the changes! If you have any ideas of something you would like to see on Developer World, feel free to drop us a comment below. Maybe you’d like to see some certain functionality, a particular layout change or some content to be more accessible? We’d be happy to hear what you think!

    I have tried to check the white papers to find Xperia phones with ANT+, but this does not seem to be included in these white papers. This is something you need to do. The white papers should include every little detail of the phones.

    Also, you could describe each feature in its own article, and make a link to each phone that supports this feature, and also detailed information on the API for this feature. You should do the same for each accessory.

    Furthermore, I think it would be wise to write something about why some of the older Xperia Android phones will not be upgraded beyond 2.1/2.3, as this is something that still pops up from time to time. In this article you should also explain the apps that are bundled with the phone, and why they cannot be uninstalled.

    An article detailing the user interface and it’s demands on the hardware and how this differs from at bog standard Android OS would also be nice.

    Just some thoughts.
