Delayed, but cheaper

PHONE MAKER Sony Ericsson's Xperia Ray smartphone is now available to buy online.

Online retailer has announced it is selling the Xperia Ray for £299 SIM free. You'll have to pay £313 at, whilst rival retailers and are still awaiting the handset.


It's not worth waiting for Play's release date of 13 September as it has the phone priced at £329. However, if you wait until 23 September then Expansys will give you the device for slightly less than the rest at £294.

This is longer than we expected to wait, as back in July had the only release date of 15 August with a price of £349. At least the delay has meant that the price has come down.

Clove said, "The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray has arrived into stock today. The Ray is a Android smartphone that has not really received the attention it deserves as it has a very good specification at a good price point."

We agree, because at £299 you do get a pretty decent smartphone for your money, considering that the firm's Xperia Play and Xperia Arc will set you back another odd £50.

The Xperia Ray boasts a 1GHz processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 3.3in touchscreen with 480x854 resolution. It also has an 8.1MP camera, 512MB of RAM and is only 9.4mm thick. µ
