While at MWC earlier this year Sony Ericsson CEO Bert Nordberg told U.S. based journalists that Sony Ericsson was going to push the US sales a lot harder this year. This was coming after the US was snubbed on the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini and Mini Pro. Those two unique devices were absent from any U.S. carrier’s line. Instead we received the Sony Xperia X10 and X8.
So far this year we’ve seen the Sony Xperia Play come ashore in the United States. The Play is the first PlayStation certified Android phone. It first appeared on Verizon and then recently AT&T.
More after the break
Sony announced Friday that they’ve opened up sales for an unlocked version of the Sony Xperia Ray to U.S. customers. This will give US customers the ability to use either AT&T or T-Mobile with the Xperia Ray.
As a refresher the Sony Xperia Ray features a 1ghz processor, Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread), 3.3 inch screen and an 8.1 megapixel camera. According to Sony Ericsson the rear facing camera sets a new standard for low light photos and videos. For those fashion forward Android users the Xperia Ray comes in gold, black, white and pink.
The display on the Sony Xperia Ray is a Sony Realty Display and is powered by Sony’s proprietary mobile Bravia Engine. Giving the Xperia visual brilliance and crystal clear images. This is the same technology powering Sony’s higher end flat panel televisions.
The Sony Xperia Ray is available at newegg.com and other online retailers.
