If you want to get a smartphone that runs on Ice Cream Sandwich, you will be hard pressed to find a better deal than this Sony Xperia Tipo; available on a £7.50 contract from Carphone Warehouse with a 60-day trial to the company’s Music Unlimited service.

The offer is on TalkMobile and offers 250 minutes, 5000 texts and 500MB data every month with a total cost of ownership of only £180.

The Tipo weighs a mere 100g, is 13mm thick, has a 3.2in 320 x 480 pixels display and runs on a single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, a MSM7227-A, clocked at 800MHz.

Other features include a 1500mAh battery that gives 270 minutes talktime on 3G, xLoud audio technology, 2.5GB onboard storage, 512MB of RAM, a microSD card slot, a 3.2-megapixel camera, an FM radio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a microUSB port.

There’s no front facing camera or HDMI port but the phone does come with a nifty application that lets you know how much data you’ve used. Rivals to the phone includes the Motorola Motosmart, the LG Optimus L3 and the Orange San Francisco II.
