UK MOBILE RETAILER Carphone Warehouse has revealed that the Sony Xperia E will be arriving on its shelves in February.
The online phone shop announced today that it will start selling the phone in February, but there's no word on pricing yet.
Announced by Sony earlier this month, the Xperia E is the latest midrange addition to Sony's Xperia lineup, as the Japanese phone maker continues to move further away from a hero strategy.
Although we're expecting the phone to be pretty cheap, it's specifications aren't bad. The Sony Xperia E will arrive with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 3.5in 480x320 touchscreen, running Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system.
Clearly aimed at those who don't want a flashy Android phone, the Sony Xperia E also has a 3.2MP rear-facing camera, no front-facing camera, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, a 1530mAh battery and Sony's usual mobile software including Walkman apps and its Timescape user interface.
You can register your interest in the phone on the Carphone Warehouse website. µ
