Sony has reportedly confirmed to Cool Smartphone that the handset would be launched in March and not earlier. Play.com is now saying the same thing, hoping to have the handset in stock starting March 6. Bear in mind that this is not a delay, since Sony never committed to a specific launch date for the Xperia S.
Announced as “the first Sony smartphone”, the Xperia S features Android 2.3 Gingerbread (upgradeable to Android ICS in the second quarter of the year), a 4.3 inch display with 1280 x 720 pixels, access to PlayStation Store, HSPA, Wi-Fi, DLNA, GPS, NFC, anti-stain coating, 12MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, HDMI port, 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8260 Snapdragon dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage space.
