Sony Mobile today has put the wraps off its latest smartphone under the Xperia series. The device, dubbed Xperia E is being touted as an entry-level smartphone for users who want to get into the Sony Xperia groove. Sony Mobile Communications’ Director for Xperia Marketing, Calum MacDougall advises consumers looking to take their first step into the world of Xperia smartphones to consider taking a look at least at the Xperia E once it becomes available by Q3 of 2013.

“They are perfect for those seeking affordable access to the quality and functionality more traditionally associated with high-end Android smartphones,” said Mr. MacDougall.

The Sony Xperia E will be competitively priced. The exact SRP though is yet to be announced. The handset will be available in black, white, and pink. It will also feature HD voice quality and noise cancellation that can filter out background noise during phone conversation. The result, according to Sony are phone calls that are clearer than ever before.

One nice feature of the Xperia is its data usage application which monitors data usage. The phone automatically disables Wi-Fi and data traffic when on sleep mode. And most apps will also be inactive during sleep mode. The result is of course a more manageable data usage. Key specs of the Xperia E include 3.5 TFT screen, 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7227A processor, and 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus. Additionally, the Xperia E will also be available in dual-sim model and this will be called as the Xperia Edual.
