Sony Quiz: Let’s Test Your Xperia Knowledge

Written by admin

It’s time to dive into the Japanese history of the early Edo period. I’m kidding of course, Sony’s roots don’t go back that far! Still, the company turned 75 last year and since it was founded in 1946 as the Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo, it has gone through many metamorphoses.

But don’t worry, there are no obscure questions about how the two co-founders Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morita met, or overly technical questions like “what type of transistor Sony used in its first solid-state radio?”

(For the record – the first transistor radio made by Sony was the TR-55 and used four types of transistors – 2T51, 2T52, 2T53 and 2T12. Morita and Ibuka met while serving on the Navy’s War Research Committee.)

Now we’ve tried to focus on phones, and although the title says “Xperia”, we dared to go a little further back in time (with just a pinch of history-related questions). As always there are 20 questions in total and a 20 second time limit for each question, so no cheating!

This is getting pretty hardcore – so we challenge any Sony fan to get out of their proverbial cave and give this quiz a try. Even if you don’t hit 20/20 right away, you can always give it another try, and maybe learn something about Sony and the Japanese way of thinking in the process.

How did it go? Share your frustration (or glorious joy) in the comment section below! And if you’re feeling adventurous, there are more quizzes to test your wits. Check them all out below:
