O2 and Three may have been quick to snap-up the first Sony-branded smartphone, but it’s not such good news for Vodafone customers. The network has told us that it is “not currently planning to include the device in our line up”. Of course, Voda’s plans may change before the phone’s March release, so we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
Launched at Sony’s CES press conference, the Sony Xperia S managed to set tongues-wagging with its impressive features and lack of Ericsson branding. One of the phone’s main selling-points is undoubtedly its 4.3-inch HD display, which boasts an impressive 720 x 1280 resolution.
It’s also Sony’s debut dual-core smartphone, clocking in at a decent 1.5GHz. Unfortunately however this comes paired with Android 2.3, although a bump to ICS has already been confirmed for later in the year.
Other specs include; a 12 megapixel camera with Exmor R sensor and 1080p HD video, a front-facing HD videocall shooter, HDMI and DLNA media sharing, HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, and either 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage.
