Sometimes, while we would love to have the best of everything, it only comes down to one or the other. Sony must know how that goes, as they have just announced the Xperia neo L, which they are touting as their first device to launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Unfortunately, while it’s great that they are launching a device with the latest version of Android, they are doing it on a decidedly not top-tier handset.
The Xperia neo L is built for the mid-range market, with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood, 512MB of RAM and 1GB of internal storage (which you can expand with a microSD card). The display measures in at 4-inches, and has a resolution of 480×800. There’s a 5MP camera on the back, you won’t find any NFC support, and the battery is measured in at 1,500mAh.
The device is listed as coming soon, but no specifics were provided just yet.
