Sony Xperia S Release Dates:
With Sony now dropping their old Ericsson name it seems that dropping letters is in fashion right now, as the more correctly named “Sony Mobile Communications” has out fooled us all and is now to call the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc HD quite simply the Sony Xperia S.
US carriers for the Sony Xperia S:
The release of the new smartphone will however be delivered in the first quarter of this year globally.
With no news on carriers in the US, it appears that UK buyers will see the device on the Three network, though we simply have no other news than that currently.
The new smartphone device will arrive with some pretty impressive technical specs including a 4.3 inch 1280 x 720 resolution touchscreen display, however right now it seems that it will be running the older version of Android on 2.3, though this could well get an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich come full release, and is definitely promised by the 2nd half of 2012.
And in typical Sony style the new smartphone will sport a massive 12 megapixel camera, with a Sony Exmor R sensor, which will enable the device to record 1080p and 720p video.
You will be provided with a powerful 1.5 GHz dual core processor from Qualcomm and an additional 32 GB of storage.

What do you make of the new phone?
I am quite glad to see Sony stop writing books for model names and get back to some simplified terms that we can all remember. And from cursory observations it would seem that this device could be a contender, though I see nothing of real note that other smartphone releases such as the Samsung Galaxy S2, Nexus, iPhone 4S or Samsung Galaxy Note can not compete against.
So would the new Sony Xperia S be of interest to you?Anthony Munns
