Sony unveils Xperia E with a Single and Dual-SIM variant, Tastes Jelly Bean
Adam Parnala | On 05, Dec 2012
Sony just added a new android phone on their Xperia Series for budget conscious consumers who want to have a taste of the latest Android OS, the Sony Xperia E. It will come in two variants: a single SIM and a “Xperia Edual” mode SIMs. Check out more details after the jump.
The Sony Xperia E will be running the latest iteration of Android OS (although the specs sheet says ICS) for users to enjoy the “buttery smooth” navigation on Jelly Bean. However, since this device has limited hardware, it might not be the case. It has a 3.5-inch HVGA display with 320×480 pixel resolution for optimal viewing experience.
“HD Voice will make phone calls clearer than ever before”
Sony said that the Xperia E can be used to “stay on top of your data and battery usage” because of its dedicated feature that will automatically disable the mobile data or Wi-Fi after several minutes of being idle and asleep. Also, given its dual-SIM capability, switching from one network to another is just a few touches away allowing you “to stay on the most cost effective plan.”
Being affordable is not only Xperia E’s asset because it also comes with noteworthy features such as wireless DNLA connectivity, Walkman xLOUD technology for the best sound quality, HD Voice which will “make phone calls clearer than ever before.” Unfortunately, it will only be powered by a mediocre 1500mAh of battery so don’t expect a huge amount of uptime on this one.
