Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray available now

Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray available nowIf there’s one phone we’ve given a verbal bashing more than the HTC ChaCha this year, it’s the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray. The poor bastard.

To be fair, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray looks fine, but coming from a manufacturer that’s easily into double figures with its Android output this year alone, it’s just a little underwhelming. Sorry, Raymond.

Anyway, if you haven’t been put off by our incessant bullying, you can now grab the SIM free Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray from Clove for £299.99. is a little more expensive at £329.99.

It’s also available from O2 on a variety of 18M and 24M contracts, from free to £79.99 up front. Of course, remember with O2 you have to throw on a “Data Allowance” bundle on top of the advertised tariff. Cheeky gits.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray has a 3.3in display, 8.1MP camera, 1GHz processor, 1,500mAh battery, and runs Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) with Facebook Inside. It’s a mere 9.4mm thick.

Vodafone and Orange are expected to join the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray party later in the year.

Yet another "barely different to the last one", phone from SE, they're worse than HTC in late 2010 (post desire HD), to early 2011 (pre Sensation).

yeah, it's like the pre-iPhone flood of walkman-branded feature phones...

I think it's quite fitting that the O2 URLs you provided include "No_Thanks". Just about sums it up.

Too expensive as everything from Sony.

Too right, selling it for 329.99, ouch. I got my Galaxy S2 for the same price (admittedly tax free), but still...329.99 for year old hardware, not my idea of a well priced phone.
