Sony releases pricing for mid-range Sony Xperia M2
The device offers a 4.8 inch screen with resolution of 540 x 960, for a 229ppi pixel density. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 with the Adreno 305 GPU on board. 1GB of RAM is included with the phone, which comes with 8GB of native storage, 5GB of which is available to the user. In the probable case that you need more storage, a 32GB microSD slot is available. An 8MP camera is on back, capturing FHD video at 30fps, and a front-facing 2MP snapper graces the handset. The 2300 mAh battery powers the device and Android 4.3 is pre-installed.
The Sony Xperia M2 will be offered in Sony's traditional trio of colors, black, white and purple. A variant of the phone with Dual SIM support will also be available, and those who buy the model will receive 30 free days of access to Music Unlimited.

Instafail! 4.8" qHD screen and 8GB internal storage for $399?!? The 8 GB Moto G with a 720p screen is $179.... Anyone who lives in a market where the Moto G is available, and they buy this M2 instead...they're stupid...

The Xperia G with 720p display that would compete with Moto G will be more expensive that it? Great............for Motorola

Moto X is in the same price point... Sony dropped the ball with their pricing on this phone.

Too pricey for the poor resolution of the screen.

Its an Sony. The brand comes with a price, not just the specs.

Still no 720p n asking too much, Sony its not going to workout. Too bad.

Guys don't freak out please... It's just introductory price. I think it will be available for €200/$250 within 6 months. Just think about Xperia SP. It's introductory price was €400/$500 but now it's only €220/€275...

This is an introductory price and it is in Netherlands!! No one in their right mind would buy Sony phones at launch price. Give it a month, it will become a value-for-money product in no time. That's what always happen to many Sony products.
