Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray pops up on Carphone Warehouse, expected August

Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray pops up on Carphone Warehouse, expected AugustThe Xperia Ray recently joined an ever-growing list of Sony Ericsson Android handsets we’ve met this year, including the Xperia Pro, Neo, Arc, Play, Mini and Mini Pro.

Three has confirmed that it’ll carry the Xperia Ray “soon”, and now the phone has popped up on The Carphone Warehouse with an expected release date of August.

Sony Ericsson promises an “irresistibly elegant Android smartphone”. We reckon “irresistible” is a bit of a stretch, but it looks ok-ish.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray has a 3.3in BRAVIA display, 1GHz processor, 8.1MP camera, 720p video recording, and rocks Gingerbread (Android 2.3). It’ll be available in gold, pink, black and white.

The Xperia Ray also claims to be one of the “slimmest, sleekest smartphones around”, with a thickness of 9.4mm.

No pricing just yet, but you can “pre-register” your interest over at The Carphone Warehouse.

Is this like the Play with PSP features?

It doesn't sound like it really has any stand out features. my Desire is up for renewal in December, if this is the state of the market I think i'll just use renewal of contract as an excuse to get an ipad rather than a replacement handset.

Don't forget Ice Cream Sandwich and next wave of Android phones coming out before Christmas.

Looks more like an Arc with a smaller screen.
