Entry-level Sony Xperia M touches down

Entry-level Sony Xperia M touches downSony has moved to fill out the lower end of its smartphone range with the announcement of the Sony Xperia M, a modestly specced handset with a 4in display.

Like most of Sony's recent smartphone offerings, the Xperia M is easy on the eye, and taking a look at its credentials it should be easy on the pocket too when it goes on sale in Q3.

That 4in display has an 854 x 480-pixel resolution for a respectable pixel density of 254ppi, while the processor is a dual-core Snapdragon effort cruising along at 1GHz, with 1GB of RAM in support.

There's 4GB of storage on board for your essentials, with a microSD card slot on hand to handle everything else. Sony's 5MP camera on the back should be good for some half-decent snaps thanks to its Exmor RS sensor, though VGA is as good as it gets with the front-facer.

Connectivity-wise you've got Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC on board, but data-wise there's no LTE support – you'll have to make do with HSPA+.

The Xperia M will be available in black, white, purple and yellow, and in both single-SIM and dual-SIM variants, suggesting it'll be pushed strongly in developing markets.

No word yet on price, unfortunately.

Another phone crippled with 4GB internal.
Yes it's got Micro SD but that's not much use for apps when you've probably only got 2.5gb useable.

A dual core processor is now considered "entry level"?! Lord help me!
