The Sony Xperia U has arrived and it’s just as gorgeous as the Xperia S - it keeps the same design language with the illuminated bar at the bottom, but it’s smaller - it comes with a 3.5-inch FWVGA Reality display with Mobile Bravia technology for juiced up color vibrancy. It still features a powerful 1GHz dual-core processor, though.
transparent illuminated bar is probably its biggest design highlight - it changes in color to match the color of displayed pictures which is a neat idea. The handset comes in a black and white versions with a matte finish and interchangeable colors of the bottom front plate (you can switch to pink and yellow).The Xperia U’s
On the back, there's a 5-megapixel camera capable of capturing 720p HD videos. It features fast capture so you go from the lock screen to taking a picture in under 2 seconds.
The Xperia U comes with Gingerbread (will be updated to ICS later on), but you wouldn’t recognize that as it’s heavily skinned. Sony brings a new album app, new video and music players underlining its . It also adds handy application access direct straight from the lock screen. One of the biggest highlights of the Sony Xperia U is its sound. The device comes with "xLoud" - a sound processing technology that will improve what you hear, and also 3D surround sound.
Finally, Sony confirmed that the Xperia U will be shipping globally in the middle of Q2 2012.

Only negative with Sony products is that they are over priced, that sure is big issue in countries like India where we have to buy sim-free mobiles at full price..

Sony phones, I think, as I have observed lately, have the same prices as Samsung. Except that Samsung phones, on my opinion, look cheap (it's like an imitation of iPhone). Their phones usually have poor screen resolution compared to Sony.
