 Sony Xperia tipo Out now
13th June 2012

The Sony Xperia tipo is a compact smartphone that runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, aimed at the value end of the smartphone market.

There will be two versions of the Xperia tipo, the standard one is a single-SIM device but there will also be an Xperia tipodual which will be a dual-SIM device, something that is still pretty rare in the Android world.

On the front of the Xperia tipo is a smallish 3.2" 320 x 480 pixel shatterproof display. On the back is a basic 3.2 megapixel camera with VGA resolution video capture. Inside is an 800MHz Snapdragon processor with 512MB of RAM. Internal flash storage is 2.9GB (with 2.5GB available to the user) and there's also a microSD slot.

 Sony Xperia tipo All the usual Android features are here such as 3.5G support, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth. The standard Android 4.0 software has several Sony enhancements, especially when it comes to multimedia.

The Xperia tipo weighs a fraction under 100 grams, measures 103 x 57 x 13mm and has a 1500 mAh battery capable of giving up to 4.5 hours talktime and 22 days standby on 3G (although as ever, real-world usage will use the battery more quickly).

Sony say that the Xperia tipo should be available during Q3 2012 in white, red, blue and black colours. No guidance was given on price, but the Xperia tipo is designed to appeal to consumers buying their first smartphone, so we are expecting to see a retail price of about €150 SIM-free when it hits the shops.
