Sony Xperia S

Sony and AT&T recently came together to launch the Xperia ion here in the U.S., but if for some reason the ion isn't piquing your interest, you've now got few more Xperia smartphones to choose from. The Xperia P is now available unlocked from Sony's online store in either black, silver or red for $479.99. Meanwhile, Newegg is offering the Xperia P for $388.99. Newegg also has the Xperia S available for $469.99 and the Xperia sola for $299.99. All three handsets are listed as shipping with Android 2.3 Gingerbread (though the Xperia S's update to Android 4.0 began rolling out late last month) and they'll work with AT&T 3G here in the U.S.

With price tags like those, this trio of Xperia devices is likely to only really appeal to those folks actively seeking an unlocked Sony handset. Still, it's nice to see that the Xpera S, P and sola can now easily be purchased by any U.S. folk that may be interested in those phones. If you count yourself as one of those people, go ahead and grab your credit card and then hit up the Sony Store and Newegg links below.

Edwin Rodriguez Na. I want an official Playstation phone with Beats by Dre.. now that they partnered with HTC for Playstation Mobile. A G-Note style PS phone would be awesome. On Verizon 4G network of coarse lol

Brian Walden
Brian Walden Looks like a good phone, but there's nothing special about it. Nothing that will separate it from the pack.

Ayoub Hage Don't know about the US but here in Australia there a flop

Rodger Samiie Myers the camera was designed by sony...same as apples with the 4S...the AMOLED was designed by a samsung-sony union...most manufactures dont design their own parts anymore...its more a game of grab the best component
Jeb Johnston
Jeb Johnston Chris, outside of the processor and ram, how much of a difference is there between the devices?
Chris Northcutt
Chris Northcutt Don't think so. I don't think they can make a phone as good as the Galaxy S3!
Kevin Joel
Kevin Joel If they make Windows Phone!
Jeb Johnston
Jeb Johnston Also, at the risk of being burnt alive. I will happily keep my Ion over a One X or SGS3
Rodger Samiie Myers
Rodger Samiie Myers sony makes fantastic multimedia devices...howeer they need to figure out what to do with the OS and how to market it better and tweak some hardware like the processor screen size and resolution
Jeb Johnston
Jeb Johnston LMAO! Could you perhaps give me a few specific examples of how it's cheap and tacky? If it ever dies, I will go back to a dumbphone before I EVER pick up the limited iOs!
Jeb Johnston
Jeb Johnston You realize that the carrier plays some degree of responsibility in release and OS delays.
Shahid Khan
Shahid Khan No they cant because sony is a dead company, as is htc & others. Only matter of time before samsung also sees sense & ditches Android platform, which will soon be killed of by Apple. Its all about the Ios, which is superior in every way, Android is a cheap & tacky version of Ios, its utter rubbish. Android will soon be dead - long live the Ios!
Perro Rosello
Perro Rosello No. They are always one Android version behind and use last years processors as well... I mean, a Snapdragon S3 in its latest flagship and Gingerbread? Sony has to be ahead of the game if they want to appeal to the current market
Cesario Brito Jr.
Cesario Brito Jr. No.
Rhanier Santiago
Rhanier Santiago If they can provide hardware that is up to date they have a chance. I personally own an Arc S unlocked myself and I'm happy that Sony at least gives the unlocked units a chance to unlock the bootloaders I hope they would do the same for the locked units to the carriers as well it would earn them brownie points for developers.
ShehrYar Asghar
ShehrYar Asghar The camera is amazing
Melvin Jefferson
Melvin Jefferson Only if they partner with RIM on BB10
Sunny Rattan
Sunny Rattan I hope so. I like sony products and that camera sensor they have is apparently good. Bring a few to Verizon!
Anthony Bailey
Anthony Bailey Who cares.
Walter Perez
Walter Perez No
Matthew Munson
Matthew Munson They need to make phones for t-mobile.
