Sony Ericsson Xperia ray listed online for pre-order with August 15 shipping date
The Sony Ericsson Xperia ray was among the trio of smartphones that the manufacturer announced a few weeks ago, and thanks to its slim profile and attractive design, the handset probably managed to grab the attention of the ones who prioritize style over substance when it comes to their gadgets. Little was said, however, regarding the smartphone's availability, and all that we knew after the announcement was that the Xperia ray would hit the market at some point within the third quarter of 2011.

Fortunately, the British online retailer Play.com can shed some light on the matter as it already has the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray, unlocked and contract-free, up for pre-order. The smartphone has an expected shipping date set for August 15 meaning that it will most probably be available through the U.K. and maybe even some other European countries around that time. Purchasing the smartphone in advance would set you back about 560$, which some would argue that is a bit too high of a price to pay for a device with somewhat average specs. However, the Xperia ray seems to be made to impress with looks and design rather than breaking Quadrant high scores.

As far as the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray's availability in the U.S. goes – all we can do is hope to see the smartphone launch along with its European counterpart.
