Yo, bargain hunters, are you around? Looking for a petite Android phone to go easy on the pocket? I have just the thing: Sony’s 4-inch Xperia M. It’s cute, portable, elegant, has decent hardware beneath the hood and, most importantly, it’s budget-friendly.
There are however two catches. 1. The only market you can hope to find the Xperia M in right now is UK. And 2. Even around those parts shipments will only be underway come mid-August.
Listed by Handtec not long ago at a fairly steep £228 price, the handheld will be made available by the nice folks over at Clove for a far more decent £194.99, including VAT. That’s $292 and it essentially reignites my hopes of seeing the M go for below 250 bucks in the States. If it’s headed to America, that is.
Now, you British blokes are probably more interested in what you’re going to get for that 195 squid, so here is Xperia M’s spec sheet in a nutshell:
- 4-inch 854 x 480 pix res display
- Dual-core 1 GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus processor
- 1 GB of RAM
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- 4 GB of internal storage space
- MicroSD support
- 5 MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash
- VGA front cam
- 1,750 mAh battery
- Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC
- 124 x 62 x 9.3 mm dimensions
- 115 grams weight
