It’s not very often that we get excited about entry-level Android smartphones, but when you pack them with up to date software you’ve got our attention. Sony recently announced the Xperia E, a Jelly Bean-flavored low-end device that was supposed to go on sale during Q1 2013 in Europe in both single and dual SIM versions.
What Sony left out of the initial introduction was this little guy’s price, but fortunately the manufacturer’s German branch has now come forward with that detail too. According to Sony Mobile Germany, the Xperia E will be €159 unlocked in its single-SIM flavor and €169 with dual-SIM.
That translates into around $205 and $218 respectively, which is definitely not bad for what the E has under its hood. As a reminder, the 3.5-incher is set to sport an HVGA screen (480 x 320 pixels resolution) and to pack a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 CPU, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory and a 3.2 MP camera in a portable and stylish body. Not bad, Sony, not bad at all (for those prices)!
