Sony India has finally launched its three Android Gingerbread powered NXT series smartphones in India, Sony Xperia P, Sony Xperia U and Sony Xperia Sola. All these 3 devices are now available in Indian retails stores as well as Online portals in price range of 17500/- to 25500/- INR. We will talk this below in details. The good news for customers is that similar to Galaxy Tab 2, Sony again has tied up with Tata Docomo for promoting these devices where people will get 3GB of 3Gdata free of cost for the first 3 months since purchase.
For the users who already using 2G services will also get 3GB data as well as 300 minutes talktime for free. Thatís not all. Tata Docomo has also launched a gaming service called ĎLetís Play on Androidí for Xperia Sola users particularly where we can have access of premium Android Games just for 99/- for a monthly. It seems that Sony India Mobile Managing Director P Balaji has a strong expectation from these NXT Series, as he added ďThe smartphone segment is growing by a compound annual growth rate of nearly 70 per cent. We as a company want to focus only on this segment. By the end of September this year, we plan to phase out all our feature phone models. The decision to phase out feature phones was taken a few quarters back and is being implemented now. There are six-seven feature phone models of the company in the market currently.Ē
Anyways, Xperia P, Xperia U, Xperia Sola are now available in markets all over India and can be now order from any online shopping sites. Letís have a look on each devices individually.
Sony Xperia P:
Sony Xperia P running on Androd 2.3 (Gingerbread) has 4-inch scratch-resistant TFT touchscreen qHD display that offers 960 x 540 pixels resolution. The display is actually powered by White Magic technology that offers additional white pixels along with standard RGB pixels. Thank god it wont features Pentile Matrix (personally i donít like it).The device is powered by 1 GHz U8500 dual-core processor and 1GB Ram for great multitasking experience. In addition there is an 8 megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash along with a Front VGA Camera for video calling. The camera offers 8x digital zoom 1080p video recording.
As per storage there is only 16GB Built in storage, we cannot expand the memory because there is no SDcard slot. This is actually a drawback of this smartphone. But 16GB is not less enough. You can store a good quanity of Songs and Movies and have fun on walk. You donít need to woory about about its battery as its powered by 1350 mAh battery. I can even say that Xperia P is very similar to Xperia S that launched about a month ago. But Xperia P can be upgraded to Android 4.0 ICS later.
Now as itís a high end device, its priced at 26,799 Rupees. But you can get a better deal with the online shopping portals. For example, Infibeam is selling Xperia P for
for just 25,500 Rupees with a free gift and other sites such as Saholic and Flipkart are selling it for Rupees 24,499.
