Sony Xperia T smartphone goes on sale for £400

The new flagship smartphone for Sony, the Xperia T, has gone on sale in the UK for £400 courtesy of Expansys. The device is set to replace the Xperia S launched earlier this year.

The Xperia T builds on the Xperia S’ hardware. It keeps the Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core system-on-chip clocked at 1.5GHz, the MSM8260-A, and the 1GB of RAM but swaps the 4.3in screen for a slightly bigger 4.55in one, while keeping the screen resolution (1,280 x 720) constant. Other features include 16GB onboard storage (down from 32GB on the Xperia S), a microSD card slot, a 13-megapixel camera with pulsed LED flash and AF and a front facing 1.3-megapixel camera.

The rear camera can shoot full HD videos while the front facing one does HD only. The Xperia T also packs Bluetooth, GPS, GLONASS, Sony EXMOR R CMOS sensor, Mobile Bravia technology, a non-removable 1,850mAh battery, NFC, MHL and DLNA compatibility.

The phone comes with 50GB of online cloud storage for life (compared to two years on HTC and Samsung), Android 4.0 ICS (with Jelly Bean coming up), a Walkman App, Playstation certification and out of the box compatibility with Sony Entertainment Network.
