If you want to be one of the first owners of the first smartphone by Sony, the Sony Xperia S, prepare to shell out Php28,500. That’s the price set by Widget City, one of the popular online (gray market) gadget stores in the country. Pre-ordering is already available and they’re expecting the units to arrive next Friday.
To those who were sleeping during the past few days, the Sony Xperia S was officially introduced early this week at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona. It’s one of Sony’s top next-generation phones (NXT) that’s supposed to come our way next quarter so having it as early as next Friday would make you the coolest kid in your group for a while.
This phone packs a 4.3″ Reality display with a really high for its size 1024 x 720 resolution. It’s powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, has a 12-megapixel Exmor R camera with f/2.4 and can do 1080p video recording. It still runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread but is just waiting for the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade. It’s also PlayStation certified by the way which allows you to download games not available in the Android Market.
