Starting today, mobile phone users in the UK can grab a new Android-based handset from Sony on the network of wireless carrier O2, namely the Xperia T.
Touted as a “Bond phone,” the new device arrives on shelves with pre-loaded content from the next Bond movie, Skyfall, set to hit theaters on October 26.
The Skyfall-branded Xperia T is available exclusively on the network of O2, and is available on monthly plans for free. Depending on the chosen plan, however, users could end up paying up to £179.99 ($290 / €225) for the device.
Those who would like to purchase the device without a contract will be able to do so for £429.99 ($693 / €535) on Pay & Go.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Xperia T was made available in the UK through other carriers as well, and that it is also available on Sony’s own website, for £449 SIM-free.
However, O2’s version of the device is the only one to arrive with the aforementioned pre-loaded content from the James Bond movie.
“Introducing the new Sony Xperia T, as used by James Bond in the much anticipated film release, SKYFALL - at cinemas October 26,” O2 notes on its website.
“It's pre-loaded with SKYFALL content only available to O2 customers including the 007 ringtone, themes and screensavers. It includes SKYFALL images that are geo-tagged to the film's locations. And as you'd expect from James Bond's phone, it's beautifully sleek and packed with state-of-the-art technology.”
Sony Xperia T packs a 4.6-inch touchscreen display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine that can deliver a 1280x720 pixels resolution, while being powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor.
The new mobile phone sports a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for HD video recording, 1 GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, microSD memory card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS receiver, and the usual set of sensors.
