We already know that the Sony Xperia S will be released in the UK, as Orange, O2, Three and Phones4U have all confirmed they’d offer the handset. But now it’s the first time we’re actually seeing a relatively exact launch date for the new Xperia.
Clove says the first stock is due to arrive in the second week of March. The British retailer lets you pre-order the Xperia S SIM-free, asking £467.99 (about $719 or €560) for it.
Expansys is also taking pre-orders for the new Android smartphone (saying it will be released on March 6), but it doesn’t provide a price yet.
The Sony Xperia S will come with Android Gingerbread on board (upgradeable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich), a 4.3 inch HD (1280 x 720) Reality Display, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 12MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and 32GB of internal memory.
