Sony Xperia SP available for U.S. pre-order

Sony Xperia SP available for U.S. pre-order
Last month, we told you that U.K. retailer Phones 4U had started taking pre-orders for the Sony Xperia SP. Now, those in the U.S. can reserve their own Sony Xperia SP from the U.S. version of the online Sony Store. The mid-range Android flavored smartphone can be pre-ordered for a price of $489.99 with free 2-day shipping included. The device is expected to be released starting on May 20th.

Just the other day, the Japanese OEM's flagship model, the Sony Xperia Z, was put up for sale in the U.S. priced at $629.99. But unlike the latter model, the Sony Xperia SP is not resistant to water or dust, and the Xperia SP is powered by a dual-core processor instead of the quad-core silicon found on the Xperia Z.

If you're interested in a mid-range Xperia model with a nice sized 4.6 inch screen and a decent battery (2370mAh) with Android 4.1 installed out of the box (which means that Project Butter, Google Now and actionable notifications are all already installed on the phone), click on the sourcelink to pre-order the Sony Xperia SP.

That's really pricey, and it's not even quad-core yet

That's actually not that bad considering that this scored BETTER than the Xperia Z in most benchmarks.

It's very good package for high midrange, clear that the Z is better but the SP is a dual core which needs not envy some quad cores. The Xperia SP is a great smartphone.
