 Sony Xperia T Available now
29th August 2012

The Sony Xperia T is the new flagship in Sony's NXT range of Android smartphones, and it has the slightly unusual distinction that it will feature in the next James Bond movie, Skyfall.

The main features of the Xperia T are a relatively large 4.55" 720 x 1280 pixel touchscreen on the front, a 13 megapixel camera on the back with a 1.3 megapixel front-facing unit, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of flash memory (with about 10GB available to the user) plus a microSD slot, all running Android 4.0.4 with an upgrade to Android 4.1 promised.

The camera is capable of 1080p video capture and uses a Sony Exmor sensor. Multimedia playback is similarly enhanced with the WALKMAN player and Track ID. Image capture and multimedia playback are supplemented with the usual Xperia add-ons that customers are used to. There's an optional media docking station too, allowing media playback on an HDMI equipped TV.

 Sony Xperia T The Xperia T measures 129 x 67 x 9.4mm and weighs 139 grams. The 1850 mAh battery is quoted as giving up to 7 hours talktime and 17 days standby time, although real-life usage will drain the battery more quickly. The Xperia T is housed in an "arc" design case rather than the typical black slabby case most other recent Sony handsets have used.

This is an HSPA+ capable device, it also supports 3.5G and 3G data WiFi, Bluetooth and USB connections. As with every other Android phone, the Xperia T supports GPS and also the Russian GLONASS system.

There are competing phones with bigger screens and faster processors, but the Xperia T is certainly good enough for all but the most demanding customers. The Xperia T looks likely to ship from September onwards in black, silver and white colours. No price was specified but we would expect the Xperia T to cost something in the region of €500 to €600 when it hits retailers.
