The Sony PC Companion is the continuation of the software provided by Sony Ericsson before Sony took over the entire mobile division. It acts as a gateway between Sony Mobile phones such as the Xperia and your Windows PC.
One cool thing that stands out with the newest versions of Sony Mobile PC Companion is the ability to migrate from iPhone to Xperia. It allows you to transfer your contacts and multimedia files to your new Sony Xperia phone.
In addition to iPhone migration, PC Companion allows you to transfer files between your PC and phone, synchronize data, perform updates on contact information and much of what previous versions of Sony Ericsson software allowed. It also has a handy backup and restore tool.
When comparing PC Companion to other similar tools available like Samsung New PC Suite, the layout is pretty familiar as they all seem to offer similar features.
With this tool, you're also able to perform phone software updates and when supported, upgrade your Sony phone to the latest version of the Google Android operating system.
Sony PC Companion can update phone firmware, manage contacts, transfer files between phone and PC, synchronize phone data and backup phone data.Sony PC Companion features and highlights:
