Sony Xperia TL arrives on AT&T on November 2: $99 for Bond’s phone
The Sony Xperia TL for AT&T is coming on November 2nd for a price of $99.99 on a two year contract. What Sony touts as the Bond phone is a version of the international Sony Xperia T and the TL takes pride in the same 13-megapixel camera and 4.6-inch 720p display.

The Xperia TL is a powerful device, running on a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The device runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but it will be among the first Sony devices to get Jelly Bean in the middle of Q2 2013.

And what about the James Bond thing? Simple, the phone got a promo from the elusive agent, and is full-packed with Bond-related content - music and scenes from the upcoming movie Skyfall.

nice but still SONY cant seriously call this a flagship when other manufacturers are popping out flagships with double the processing power and RAM and JELLY BEAN!

i dnt really care bout jelly bean since the galaxy note 2 ima get soon will probably have it or if dnt it will get it soon I hope lol. Only thing I dnt like is the processing power and ram like u said other phones have more but for some reason I always liked Sony phones and the design they put on there phones they have a special place in my heart cuz my first phone was a Sony . So ima just get it and test it out and see how it performs.

Oh boy... SONY is really into some serious movie-marketing since the company is making lots of very popular movies such as The Amazing Spider-man, the Bond movies and so... and it really uses that part in its advantage and advertises its own smartphones witch is not such a bad idea since other companies don't have that opportunity. Is it helping? Well, we'll just have to see about that, I guess, but I heard some people complaining about that advertising is spoiling those movies witch is not the case with me though.

THE PHONE I'VE BEEN WAITING for and I knew it would be 99$ just like the iON. and to let phonearena know it's A HIGH END DEVICE AND FLAGSHIP you still don't want to compare the GSIII LG OPTIMUS G OR NOKIA with the XPERIA T JUST BECAUSE it's not a quad core doesn't have to be a called as you say it LOW END DEVICE. I'm buying this phone the BOND PHONE and it will be my SPY PHONE. Since i can't afford the GALAXY NOTE II i'll buyt his baby. AWESOME can't wait
