Sony Xperia tipo, Xperia tipo dual are announced with entry-level written all over
The Sony Xperia tipo, which was previously known by its Tapioca codename, is now finally official. What we have on our hands is a low-end Android smartphone suitable for first-time smartphone owners. It comes in a single- or dual-SIM flavor, with the latter called the Sony Xperia tipo dual.

Interested in specs? Well, here they are: the Sony Xperia tipo and its dual-SIM brother have a 3.2-inch HVGA (320x480) display made out of scratch-resistant mineral glass. Inside it runs an 800MHz single-core Qualcomm processor, and on the back we have a 3.2-megapixel camera. Nothing earth-shattering, we know, yet on the bright side, the smartphone would likely be quite competitively priced. What is really worth noting, however, is that the Xperia tipo is equipped with a 1,500mAh battery, which should deliver over 24 hours of continuous usage time, according to Sony. Thumbs up for that! Another good thing is that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich comes pre-installed.

For those of you who might want to get one, the Sony Xperia tipo and Xperia tipo dual are to be released globally in the third quarter of 2012. Exact pricing details remain unknown at this time.

boo..ace 2 is much more expensive so no comparo mini 2 is Tipo's competitor and tell me in what way is mini 2 better? mini 2 running GB vs Tipo running ICS. Well, since you prefer GB I've got nothing to say...

I really would love to see this in the name of "Sony xperia Y". It's a great competitor for Galaxy Y series. :))

Looks very promising to me. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a budget Android smartphone. The design is quite outstanding for this class of device, not to mention ICS right out of the box.

Tipo will blow all low-end Androids out of the water with ICS simply because other manufacturers still launch low-enders with GB with no plans to upgrade to ICS. Besides, Tipo looks beautiful for a low-end phone

can it play flash? PA's specs sheet doesn't say if the browser supports adobe flash.. but from the looks of its processor and RAM, i think it could--i hope it would. coz back in the GB days, entry-level meant no-flash. i hope this will not be the case in ICS...

Miro has the same cpu and ram and supports flash so i think it will. the samsung galaxy mini2 also a low-ender with the same hardware supports flash..
