Canadian mobile phone maker TELUS has just added a new Sony Ericsson handset to its offering, namely the Xperia ray, a smartphone unveiled to the world earlier this year with Google's Android operating system on board.
The handset was made available for purchase with a price tag of $49.99 (36 Euros) attached to it with the signing of a three-year contract agreement with the wireless carrier.
However, those who would like to purchase the new device
will also be able to have it on two- or one-year contracts, while also having the option to purchase it contract free, for $379.99 (276 Euros).
The new mobile phone is powered by the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system and features a compact yet appealing design.
Some of the main features it arrives on shelves with include:
- Beautifully designed 9.4 mm slim aluminum frame
- Enhanced contrast and richer colours with the Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine
- Powerful 8.1 MP HD camera with Exmor R for mobile
- Facebook inside Xperia making it easy to comment on tracks or tag photos
- Wi-Fi hotspot to share Web access with multiple devices like tablets or laptops.
The smartphone also comes to the market with a 3.3-inch touchscreen display that can deliver an 854 x 480 pixel resolution, as well as with a fast application processor inside, complemented by 512MB RAM.
The new device also sports a microSD memory card slot to enable users expand the available storage space by up to 32GB.
