Sony Xperia U arrives on Three UK's lineup for $268 unlocked
Previously, it was revealed that Clove UK would be getting the Sony Xperia U on May 28th, but it appears that someone else managed to get the head start, as the device is now available for purchased through Three UK.

For those interested in checking out the smallest Xperia model announced this year, you’ll be glad to know that Three UK is selling it for a mere $268 (£169.99). Even better, the price point nabs you an unlocked model that’s ready to start working with most networks throughout the globe – so there are no worries in terms of network compatibility.

On the other hand, for those who prefer paying far less, it can be picked up with a 2-year contract for free with monthly plans that start at $32 (£20) per month. Still, if you prefer paying less monthly, you can dish out an initial fee of $109 (£69) which would lower the monthly plan cost to a mere $24 (£15) – thus, easing the burden for you each month.

Indeed, Three UK has somehow managed to get a head start over its rivals, but the modest Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone is expected to be launched with O2, T-Mobile UJ, and Orange sometime later this month. For the money, you get a handset that features a 3.5” FWVGA display, interchangeable colored bottom sections, dual-core processor, and a 5-megapixel auto-focus snapper.
