A few more sim-free unlocked Sony Xperia handsets such as Acro S, miro, tipo and tipo dual are now available to those in the United States.
Xperia Acro S:
The Acro S is the most generously equipped phone out of the quartet, being powered by a dual-core 1.5 Ghz Qualcomm MSM8260 Snapdragon CPU with 1 GB of RAM.
The 4.3-incher has a beautiful LCD touchscreen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, 16 GB of on-board memory, microSD storage, a 12 MP rear-facing shooter, and a 1,910 mAh battery. Although it comes with IP57 certification for dust and water resistance, the acro S is rather slim, weighing in at 147 grams and measuring 11.9 mm in thickness.
The dust and water resistant Sony Xperia acro S is available in both black and white colors, and available in the price range of $649.99 if you choose to get it from Sony’s official store.
It is far more affordable, going for just $239.99 in white, white/gold, black/pink, and metal black. However, the 3.5-incher is more modestly equipped, with an 800 MHz Qualcomm MSM7225A CPU and 512 MB of RAM under its hood.
The 480 x 320 screen, 4 GB of internal memory, and 5 MP rear-facing camera are themselves not highly attractive specs, although you will be happy to know that this little guy runs Android 4.0 ICS and comes with microSD support.
Xperia tipo and tipo dual:
These two phones look identical, having 3.2-inch screens and 800 MHz MSM7225A CPUs, but the tipo dual allows accommodating two SIM cards at once.
The Xperia tipo is available in navy blue, deep red, classic black and classic white for $189.99, while its dual Sim brother goes for $209.99 in either classic silver or serene black.
You can place the orders for all four phones right now through Sony US, with the acro S and tipo shipping right away, but the miro and tipo du
