The handset was released for free on the carrier's £36 per month plan
UK mobile phone users now have the possibility to purchase a new device on the airwaves of wireless carrier T-Mobile, namely the Xperia S.The handset was made available in the country a few weeks ago, and carriers such as Orange, O2 or Three have already added it to their lineup.
Xperia S can now be seen listed on T-Mobile’s network, free, on monthly plans that start at £36.00 (around $57 / 43 Euros) a month (with the signing of 24 months agreements).
The offering will also provide users with unlimited Internet and texts, as well as with 2000 minutes to any networks, and unlimited T-Mobile calls.
The new mobile phone was made official at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in early 2012, with a large 4.3-inch touchscreen display and with a dual-core 1.5GHz application processor.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Xperia S is the first dual-core handset to hit the market from Sony, and that it is the company’s current flagship device.
“The Sony Xperia S has a stunning 4.3" Reality Display with Mobile Bravia Engine, so you can watch the latest films or your own videos in vivid HD. Or just plug the Xperia S into your TV via HDMI to enjoy your HD content on the big screen,” T-Mobile notes on its website.
The new device packs 32GB of internal memory (without a microSD memory card slot to expand it), 3G and WiFi connectivity capabilities, Bluetooth and GPS, and the like.
Moreover, the new device features a 12-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with the Exmor R sensor for mobile and with support for full HD video recording. It also comes with a camera on the front, for video calling.
Running under the Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform, the handset also provides users with access to a wide range of games and applications designed for the platform, as well as with support services specifically meant for it.
“The Xperia S is a PlayStation Certified smartphone, meaning it comes with a set of action-packed, console-style games. Play on the stunning HD screen of the Xperia S, or link up to your television and enjoy them on the big screen,” T-Mobile explains.
“A powerful 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 32GB of memory mean the Xperia S rivals any handheld console. And with new games coming out all the time through the PlayStation Store, boredom is not an option.”
