 Sony Xperia miro Available now
13th June 2012

The Sony Xperia miro is a step up from the newly announced Xperia tipo, and is an Android 4.0 device aimed at social networking fans who are looking for a relatively low cost smartphone with a reasonable feature set.

On the front of the Xperia miro is a 3.5" 320 x 480 pixel scratch-resistant display which is small by Android standards, but still the same size as the iPhone 4S (although a much lower resolution). On the back is a 5 megapixel camera capable of VGA resolution video capture, and there's also a secondary camera on the front for video calling.

 Sony Xperia miro Inside is an 800MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 512MB of RAM (the same as on the Xperia tipo). Internal memory is 4GB of flash (with 2.2GB available to the user) and there is also a microSD slot.

Shipping with Android 4.0 out of the box, the Xperia miro does everything that every other Android phone will do and includes WiFi, 3.5G support, Bluetooth and GPS. There are some Sony multimedia enhancements too, and one key selling point is something Sony called "Deep Facebook Integration".

The Xperia miro weighs 110 grams, measures 113 x 59 x 9.9mm and the 1500 mAh battery is quoted as giving up to 6 hours talktime and 22 days standby time. Available colour schemes are black, black/pink, white and white/gold.

Whether or not the Xperia miro makes an attractive proposition to customers will depend on price, and Sony aren't saying how much this will cost. Our guess is that it should retail for less than €200 when it hits the markets during Q3 2012.
