AT&T to offer James Bond's Sony Xperia TL in a promotional tie-in to the next 007 film

James Bond gets to select the best equipment and now those in the U.S. will be able to purchase the same phone that 007 will be using in the upcoming release, Skyfall; the 13MP camera on the device goes from standby to first shot in just 1.5 seconds...

If 007 had that phone he wouldn't be able to locate his destination with the Apple Maps. Besides it is James Bond were talking about here.....not Austin Powers...

I agree not because I am siding with the Note 2 but because I really don't see how this is the SONY flagship. Its short on the processor and RAM in my books...too little too late perhaps?
Sony does not enjoy market share like Samsung and Apple therefore they cant afford to compromise on hardware specs and their UI isnt exactly very popular not to mention their horrid naming schemes...whats up with that SONY?
Sony you can do better and we expect better so...Make Believe...Make Us Believe!

Horrid naming schemes, the only thing that is different from Apple's naming scheme is the numbers, what's up with "iphone 3, iphone 4, iphone 4s, iphone 5" and the next one would rither be "iphone 5s or iphone 6" and it's safe to say they will still be playing catch-up. And samsung, what's "galaxy pocket duos or ruch or reverb or appeal" oh yes and i can't help but notice they are copying apple with the 1, 2, 3 bull crap. So what i'm trying to say here is don't talk about naming schemes just....don't.

Last time I saw a spy movie, they needed portable equipment that they can carry anywhere, not big ass phones that look cheap.

yeh Note 2 does have sick specs but when u look at benchmarks Sony phones dish out all performance out of their hardware so they beat them in some tests. IF sony had s4 quad krait and 2 gigs of ram GOD DAM that would be a day to behold

Without a doubt! Haven't seen a single bad James Bond film, starting from Dr. No in the 60's.

I'm only 25, though lol.

The only thing I'm worried about is the battery life. This phone doesn't have a removable battery to expand huh?

Oh and, the phone will obviously launch November 9, with the release of Skyfall in theaters.

yea if this "TL" is the same "T" that we been looking at for some time then it doesnt have a removable battery........Thats why im looking forward to the TX, and V as well they both have removable ones and the V is interesting because its water resistant!

Yea the L just stands for LTE capable basically. Yea the V is actually pretty amazing. It has 342 ppi on a 4.3 inch screen at 720x1280. Any idea when the V might come?

Yea November seems legit. The only other issue will be that it most likely won't come to AT&T.

None in the U.S.

I think it'll be sold unlocked to buy for full price. Because if the U.S. gets the T, no way the V will come too, especially when they are very similar.
