iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Sony Xperia S Down To £370

UK Mobile phone operator Three mobile is currently selling the Sony Xperia S smartphone for as little as £370 on PAYG, which is by far the cheapest HD ready handset we've seen on the market.

The Three Mobile deal excludes a compulsory £15 top up which pays for an all you can eat data offer with 300 minutes and 3000 texts.

The Sony Xperia S was officially announced at Mobile World Congress almost two weeks ago and is currently available on preorder from O2 from as little as £21.50 on a two year contract. You can also buy it as a SIM free option for around £430.

The handset comes with a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset clocked at 1.5GHz with a 4.3-inch Reality Display screen with a 1,280 by 720 pixels resolution and Mobile Bravia technology.

The rest of the configuration includes 1GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage, a 12-megapixel camera with flash and full HD video recording option and Exmor R technology, a non-removable battery, HDMI and USB ports, a microSIM slot and a front facing 1.3-megapixel camera.

The handset currently runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread but should be upgradable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich later this year and it is Playstation Certified.

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.
