First Impressions: Sony Ericsson Xperia ray
If you’ve been to the PLDT – Smart Jump Center at the Cyberzone in SM Megamall, you would see some phones that they will be carrying in the future. One of which is the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray which we was officially announced last July.
The Xperia ray in a sense is just like the Xperia arc in a smaller body. If a 4.2-inch screen phone is too large for you then the Xperia ray’s 3.3-inch might be more suitable. I find it to be a phone ladies would love considering it comes in a variety of colors. It’s not too big to handle and still sexy to show off.
I’m not kidding when I say it’s similar to the Xperia arc. It has the same Bravia mobile engine powering its display. The Xperia ray has the same 480 x 854 resolution as the Xperia arc which gives it a higher pixel density (more sharper images) since it has a smaller screen. I tried watching the Final Fantasy HD trailer on it and it looks really sharp.
The phone is also powered by the same 1GHz processor and Adreno 205 GPU. It runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and it also has the same 8-megapixel camera with Exmor R lens as that of the Xperia arc.
We don’t know when the Xperia ray is coming or how much it will sell for. The Xperia arc now goes for P25,000 so if I’m to guess maybe this one would be in the Desire S range of about P20,000.
