Sony Xperia P Smartphone Is LT22i Nypon

It looks like the Sony LT22i Nypon will be known as the Xperia P when it launches later this month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, together with the Xperia U (ST25i Kumquat) and an unidentified phone codenamed Pepper.

The phone, according to a report from GSMArena, which should go on sale from April onwards, will cost around 370 Euros and should turn out to be a smaller version of the Xperia S.

Other unconfirmed features include an ST-Ericsson NovaThor U8500 dual core Cortex-A9 based chipset, a WVGA capacitive display, Wi-FI, Bluetooth and a camera that's inferior to the Xperia S.

Sony Ericsson - which will soon lose the Ericsson name - is likely to retire a few of its smartphones which were launched last year at MWC.

They all ran on a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon system on chip and shared a few common specifications including the screen resolution.

The Xperia arc, the Xperia Play, the Neo and the Pro were complemented later in 2011 by a new set of smartphones, like the Xperia arc S and the Active. Expect prices to fall; the price of th Xperia Play already took a plunge last year reaching £150.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
