Sony seems to have realised that the key to a successful Android smartphone in India is the pricing. With a price tag that pins this device against the likes of Samsung Galaxy Ace ( no front camera) and HTC Wildfire S, Sony wants to give the customers that extra something. Not to mention that this phone ships with the latest Android OS available for phones.
This will be the first phone in this price category to offer a front facing camera, a full QWERTY keyboard and Gingerbread at such an affordable price. We haven’t gotten our hands on one of these but it looks like a winner to us. Finally a phone manufacturer brings a product that will compete not only with its competition because of the great features it brings but also its own offering Xperia Mini. We cant wait to get our hands on one of these.
