After buying Ericsson share in SonyEricsson, Sony announced two new Xperia smartphones at the MWC 2012 yesterday, part of the Xperia NXT lineup the affordable Xperia U and the high-end Xperia P. We got their prices and Specs too.

Sony Xperia

The Xperia U is going to cost €259. As you should probably know already - it will come with two exchangeable bottom plastic caps depending on the main color. The white Xperia U has white and yellow bottom plastics, while the black phone comes with black and pink ones.

Xperia S

There are noises starting to emerge that the upcoming Sony Xperia S will come with two neat features that the company have not exactly been banging the drum about. First off, the phone will come with some kind of anti-stain shell. This is not in dispute as the company mentioned this point on a Facebook post, although SE has not formally expanded on what this involves. recently spoke to the Sony Ericsson Product Manager for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands who appears to have also confirmed the above. They said that the phone will come with a special nano coating that is not just dirt repellent but also UV Active. They also report that the Xperia S will come with a fast charging ability. Charge times will be reduced by half and a 10-minute charge is good enough to keep the phone going for an hour. We haven't been able to verify the latter ourselves, but it seems like a nice addition if true.

Sony has announced that their newly announced Xperia smartphones, the Xperia S and Xperia Ion, will come equipped with the GLONASS satellite navigation system built-in.

Also, hey have also revealed that some of their previous smartphones on sale right now have had GLONASS support built-in since launch. These other handsets include the Xperia arc, Xperia arc S, Xperia ray, Xperia neo, Xperia pro, Xperia PLAY, Xperia active and Xperia Live with Walkman.

GLONASS is to Russia what GPS is to America. Most of the phones have just GPS on-board, which restricts them to 31 satellites but having both, GPS as well as GLONASS on-board, you have access to 24 additional satellites, which not only speeds up lock-on time but also ensures you get a lock-on in trickier places when you are surrounded by tall buildings.

Smart Watch

Smart watches that pair with your phone and let you view and access select functions of your phone seem to be the coolest thing in the world of mobile accessories at the moment. Motorola recently launched the Android-powered MOTOACTV that works as your music player and also logs your workout sessions.


Like the MOTOACTV, the Sony SmartWatch runs on Android. But unlike Motorola, Sony is letting you download apps on the SmartWatch through the Android Market. Of course, the apps will need to be optimized for the small display, not to mention the limited hardware of the watch. Sony will be releasing an SDK for developers to make appropriate apps to run on the SmartWatch.

Now Sony too has joined the fray with their smart watch called, well, SmartWatch. It has a 1.3-inch multi-touch OLED display that lets you access your phone functions such as calls, messages, music as well as social networking applications such as Twitter and Facebook.
