Description

Sony Xperia P is supposed to stand out of the crowd with its 4.0-inch qHD display manufactured using Sony's very own WhiteMagic technology, the device's screen is capable of delivering brightness superior to that of any other smartphone on the market today, according to Sony. Thanks to that, the screen's outdoor visibility should be outstanding, to say the least. Looking further down its specs sheet, we see a dual-core chipset providing the Sony Xperia P with processing power. Responsible for capturing those special moments is an 8-megapixel camera residing on the smartphone's back. What is really cool about the camera is that it should be capable of booting really fast straight from the lock screen.
