Here's another story from last night at CES that we are excited to share with you guys this morning. Sony just launched their newest Android flagship devices, the Xperia Z and the Xperia ZL. Both are 5-inch phablet-style devices. We have a spec round-up for each device and we also found a couple of hands-on videos to share with you guys. Both devices have essentially the same innards, but the Z is designed to be water and dust resistant, while the ZL loses this feature, but has a slightly smaller footprint.
