Sony makes some of the best Android phones out there. The Japanese technology giant announced few smartphones last week, out of which Xperia J had some humble specs. To start with, it has got a 4 inch screen, a large 4.0” FWVGA Display (480 x 854 pixels) and a 1 GHz Qualcomm MSM7227A running the show. Apart from that, it has a 5-megapixel camera on its back and 4 gig of on board storage to play with, which can be of course expanded using MicroSD slot. The device will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
The specs don’t sound very high end, but that’s not the market it is targeting either. Sony didn’t give any information on the pricing, however, one British retailer called Clove has put a price tag on the entry-level Xperia J, though they won’t be able to ship the device until October. Clove has priced the device at 190 GBP, which roughly converts to about US $300. The $300 price tag is inclusive of all taxes and exclusive of carrier subsidy of any kind, and that’s a pretty nice price tag over there. The higher-end Sony Xperia T and the mid-range Sony Xperia V were also announced along with Xperia J and are listed on the retailer’s website, though those devices haven’t been priced yet.
Clove’s pricing is the first signs of SIM free pricing for Sony Xperia J. A little earlier, Carphone Warehouse had a pre-registration page on its website for the new Sony Xperia T. The retailer said that the devices would be made available after September 5th, which is contradicting Clove’s claim to have it up for grabs in October, nevertheless, you should consider waiting for few days before pulling out your credit card and ordering it. In addition, Sony’s new Xperia tablet S has been priced and will set you back £329 for the WiFi version and £429 for the 3G variant.
