Sony Mobile Communications on Sunday launched the latest additions to its Xperia NXT series - the new Xperia P and Xperia U. These are first smartphones to have been launched Under the Sony brand.
Xperia P and Xperia U will be available to consumers globally in the second quarter of this year, the company said. Apart from this Xperia S is now shipping to markets across the globe, with first sales in the Sony Style store in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress.
Incorporating the best of Sony technology and premium entertainment, the Xperia NXT series is a cornerstone of Sony''s connected experience. With easy connectivity, consumers can enjoy and share content on whichever screen best suits them, whether it's their smartphone, TV, laptop or tablet.
With the next generation of smartphone design from Sony, the Xperia NXT series has a look that is instantly recognisable. These smartphones have intriguing design features including the "transparent element", a band that encircles the base of the phone and also integrates invisible antenna components. The transparent element illuminates when receiving calls, texts and notifications.
The new User Interface (UI) follows the same design principles and enhances the Android(TM) experience - offering rich applications and content with a simple and clean look.
