Sony continues to bring its Xperia S smartphone in as many countries as possible. Although the company has just started to introduce its Xperia NXT devices globally, the Xperia S is already available for purchase in quite a few regions.
In this regard, we’ve just been tipped that the handset has just gone live in Turkey. Android fans can grab the Xperia S for free via Turkcell
, but they are required to sign up for a new two-year agreement starting at $33 (25 EUR) per month.
It appears that the current deal is only valid until June 30, but other Xperia NXT handsets might get launched in Turkey by that time.
Unfortunately, customers who do not want to commit to a long-term contract will be required to shell out no less than 885 USD (675 EUR) upfront for the Xperia S.
Sony Xperia S is the first smartphone in the Xperia NXT and is powered by Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread
Although Sony has already confirmed that the device is upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, there’s no telling exactly when the company starts the rollout of the update.
The latest statement coming from the Japanese company stated that beginning mid-April it would begin delivering Ice Cream Sandwich updates for some of its Xperia smartphone, though it’s not clear which ones will get it first.
The Xperia S
is equipped with a powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8260 Snapdragon processor, an Adreno 220 GPU, 32GB of internal memory and 1 GB of RAM.
Another strong point of the device is the impressive 12-megapixel rear camera, which features autofocus, LED flash, full HD (1080p) video recording and Sony Exmor R sensor technology.
The phone comes with a hyper-vibrant 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution and features Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine.
