Breaking: Sony Xperia U announced!
Sony unveiled at the beginning of their event the Xperia P and the Xperia U, phones from their Xperia NXT series. Running Android, no word on ICS sadly, they will be pure entertainment phones. Sony is taking a new look into integration to their services, including music and movie streaming services, and they’ve integrated that into their new “mini Xperia S” phones.
The Xperia U has a 1 ghz dual core processor, “Reality Display”, and a 5 mega pixel camera. One of it’s biggest accessories is a wireless speaker system that allows you to stream your content over the air to the speakers, potentially playing your music anywhere you are in the vicinity. It also features a nifty strip on the bottom of the phone that changes colours based on what you’re doing, whether its viewing photos or getting a notification (I missed notification lights). Just like the Xperia P, it also features capabilities for multimedia purchasing through SONY’s own store, meaning you can stream unlimited music and movies as well.
We are looking at Mid Second Quarter releases for both phones at this point.
