AT&T to offer James Bond's Sony Xperia TL in a promotional tie-in to the next 007 film
With a "License To Kill," who is more suave or debonair than James Bond? Every piece of his equipment, from poison pens to his guns, are not only functional but are also sleek and add to his mystique. While you might not be able to afford his car, legally carry his weapons, or have the same, uh, evening experiences as 007, you can carry around his smartphone. That is because the Sony Xperia TL, the phone found in James Bond's hand, will be available from AT&T starting at an unspecified date for an unspecified amount of American currency.

The Sony Xperia TL features a 4.55 inch Reality Display powered by the Bravia Engine with 720p HD resolution. A dual-core 1.5GHz processor is under the hood, and while it has not been specified, it could be the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960. A quick launching 13MP camera is on back. The shooter goes from sleep to snap in just over 1 second allowing users to grab that picture when inspiration hits, or when an enemy spy has been spotted. The rear-facing camera captures spies video in 1080p while the front-facing camera  weighs in at 720p. Even though Android 4.0.4 is aboard, do you honestly think that Sony and AT&T would leave James Bond hanging without the latest Android update? No sir. That is why the device will be updated to Android 4.1 after its launch. NFC support allows one-touch sharing and also lets users control certain features of their phone with Xperia SmartTag. One comes in the box with the phone. The Sony Xperia TL has 4G LTE connectivity.

Three of Sony's media apps are pre-loaded on the phone including Walkman, Movies and Album. The unit is also pre-loaded with content from the movie Skyfall, the next 007 release coming to a theater near you.
