Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray, Xperia Active and TXT announced (video)
Sony Ericsson has just unveiled three new phones, two of which are part of the Xperia family.
The first new product is the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray, a fashionable, 9.4mm thin smartphone that runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and comes with a 3.3 inch scratch-resistant FWVGA Reality Display. The Ray also features “Facebook inside Xperia”, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 8.1MP autofocus camera with Exmor R for mobile, HD video recording, 1GHz processor, and a 4GB memory card pre-installed.
The Xperia Ray will be available in select markets (including Japan) starting the third quarter of the year. You can watch a video promo of it below:
Next we have the Sony Ericsson Xperia Active (which should be released at about the same time with the Xperia Ray). As its name suggests, this is a smartphone targeted at users “with an active lifestyle.”
Also running Android Gingerbread, the Xperia Active is water resistant and dust proof, and has a unique “wet finger tracking” feature for, ensuring “the phone works perfectly when either the screen or a user’s fingers are wet.”
The handset comes with a 3 inch HVGA Reality Display, Wi-Fi, HSDPA, GPS, barometer, compass, on-screen heart rate and pulse info, wrist strap, Facebook inside Xperia, 5MP camera with HD video recording, 1GHz processor, and a 2GB memory card pre-installed.
Finally, let’s meet the Sony Ericsson TXT:
Like the TXT Pro slider announced earlier this month, the Sony Ericsson TXT isn’t a smartpohne. It’s a BlackBerry-styled candybar with a QVGA landscape display, and a full QWERTY keyboard. Other features include: Wi-Fi, SMS shortcut key, Facebook and Twitter access, 3.2MP camera, and MicroSD card support. The handset should be available starting Q3.
As you can see, we still have to wait for Sony Ericsson to announce the rumored Xperia Duo – of course, it may actually never do it.
