Sony Ericsson Xperia ray is available as an unlocked model through Newegg for $424.99
Even though it’s unclear if a domestic carrier will indeed take hold of the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray, the Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone is going to traverse a path taken by other European specific devices in an attempt to gain some recognition in the US.

Specifically, it’s going to be available through Newegg and some other online retailers for the asking price of $429.99 outright. On top of that, it’s worth noting that this photo-taking centric handset is being sold as an unlocked model with support for AT&T’s 3G bands. For the price, that’s not too shabby at all considering that you’re not required to sign a contract or pay a huge amount to buy one.

Some of its features include a 3.3” Reality Display with Mobile Bravia Engine, 8.1-megapixel rear camera with an Exmor CMOS sensor, front-facing VGA camera, 1GHz single-core Snapdragon MSM8255 processor, Adreno 205 GPU, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, aGPS, 1,500 mAh battery, and a microSD card slot.

Interestingly enough, Newegg has the handset priced lower right now than some of the online retailers that are expected to offer the handset as well – it’s only $379.99! At that point, it’s easily a solid buy considering that it’s unlocked, has support for AT&T 3G, and doesn’t require a contract.
