Sony Announces Low-End Xperia E With Single and Dual-SIM Versions
There are still letters in the alphabet and Sony is sticking to its recent naming convention trying to use up all of them. The new smartphone is here and it is called the Xperia E; it will become available in both single and dual SIM versions from starting from the first quarter of 2013. Color options include black, white, and pink.
It features a 3.5-inch HVGA 320 x 480 display and it is powered by a 1GHz processor. Other specs include HD Voice features, an 1,500 mAh as well as the capability of accepting two SIM cards (for the dual-SIM version) which will allow for easy switching between two carriers. The battery is aided by special monitoring software that checks “when the screen has been in sleep mode for a few minutes, Wi-Fi and data traffic will be disabled and most applications will be inactive to save battery life”. Powering it all will be Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean “for the latest Android user experience” (sic!).
