August 8th said to be launch date for Sony Xperia tipo in U.K.
£89.95 ($140.89 USD) when purchased with a £10 ($15.67 USD) top-up. Finally, there is the SIM free option which will cost you £119.95 ($187.96 USD). Those who pre-order the phone now (click on the sourcelink if interested) should have the device in hand on August 8th.
The Sony Xperia tipo offers a 3.2 inch HVGA display with a low pixel density of 180ppi. Under the hood is a single core 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7225AA processor with 512MB of RAM on board. The 2.5GB of native storage can be expanded using the 32GB capacity microSD slot and the 3.2MP camera can capture video in VGA resolution. A 1500mAh battery is powering the device while Android 4.0 is installed out of the box.
Sounds like the Sony Xperia tip would make a good 'Back to School' phone for junior. With a global release just starting, it seems like a timely addition to Sony's lineup.
