At Zapper, we love the story of Sony, a brand that needs no introduction. Sony is a company built out of the ashes of post war Tokyo. After World War 2 had left Japan in ruins, Masaru Ibuka returned to work with his business group in a small room with a couple of switch boards. Soon after tireless work Ibuka established Totsuken Telecommunications. Using their engineering know how, Totsuken soon were able to establish a facility where they began producing adapater that could convert short and medium wave radios into all wave wide receivers.
It’s from these humble beginnings that Ibuka continued to use his genius to produce many different electronic devices; it began producing tape recorders that were far ahead of the time in terms of sound quality, which is where Sony got its first taste of being a leader in making audio electronics. It was when Sony moved to the US and decided to create radios using transistors that gave the company a real edge over the competition. In 1957 Sony produced the world’s smallest transistor radio, the TR-63. Some may call this the sign of what was to come over 40 years later. It was through the second half of the 20th century that Sony took strides towards its greatest ever success. With the advent of the cassette tape and Sony’s incredible drive to develop that technology, came the Walkman. Its first model, ‘TPS-L2’ was ground-breaking, it allowed the listener the unique experience of being completely individual when listening to their music. Previously music could only be enjoyed amongst company in the car or on a home radio. The Walkman to date has sold 186 million units.
In 2001 after the mass popularisation of mobile devices Sony released the W800i. Not its first phone, but it was a monumental moment for Sony. It incorporated aspects of the Walkman and Sony’s camera technology to create a phone that could store up to 30 hours of music and still take 2-megapixel photos.
Sony mobile continued to produce the vogue phones of the time until the emergence of the smartphone allowed it to develop its Xperia line. Sony’s smartphones consistently have the best camera sensors and literally watertight build quality with the latest featuring IP67 rated resistance. The first Sony to feature this was the Sony Xperia Z.
Since their phones hold up so well for a long time, we at Zapper are keen to get our hands on them, that’s why we’ll pay you a good chunk of cash for your old Sony. Also, since Sony are constantly updating their line and are some of the most successful phones ever, chances are you have an old Ericsson lying around your
