Sony Xperia S to start UK tour, white body to grace Phones4U

Yes, yes we are all excited about the new XPERIA S from Sony. If you don’t know yet, Sony has been making quite a few changes lately. After deciding to let their partnership with Ericcson dissolve and go the way of the dodo, many looked to Sony to see what they had up their sleeve. Well for now, its the Xperia S. You many have seen renders and pictures of this phone before when it was but a code moniker and blurrycam pics but yes, their new flagship device is one impressive sonuvagun.

Now the 4.3-inch LCD HD Reality display, the 12 MP camera, and the 1.5GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor aside, it’s just your run-of-the-mill premium Android handset. It will ship with 2.3 (Gingerbread), but if Sony is at all serious about the future of their mobile division (clearly they are), they will get this bad boy some Ice Cream Sandwich action shortly. In other news, the phone comes in two colors black and white. The black iteration will be released on several UK carriers including Three and O2, however, if you want the other flavor, well Phones4U has the exclusive so you know what you have to do.


10th January 2012: Following Sony’s announcement of the new Xperia™ S at CES 2012, Phones 4u is pleased to announce that in addition to ranging the black colour variant, it will exclusively sell the Xperia™ S in White from March.
