Sony Xperia M out in August, priced at £227.99

Sony Xperia M out in August, priced at £227.99Just last week Sony unveiled its latest addition to the Xperia line, the low-end Xperia M.

At the time the only info we had on price or availability was that it'll be touching down sometime in Q3, but now we can shed a bit more light on this entry-level battler.

It's not Sony itself dishing up the details, so we can't verify their accuracy, but let's not worry about facts getting in the way of a good story for the time being.

According to Carphone Warehouse, the multi-hued Xperia M – which will be available in black, white, purple and yellow – will arrive during the month of August. It doesn't say specifically when in August, but that it least narrows things down a little.

For word on price, meanwhile, we jet over to Handtec, where a reasonably affordable price tag of £227.99 is listed.

For that, you'll be getting a 4in display running at 854 x 480, a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and a 5MP Exmor RS-based camera, plus NFC.

You want be able to get your 4G on, though, and the limited 4GB of internal space has already drawn a grumble or two from the Mobot faithful in the Comments to last week's piece.

So what about the price, then? Will you be getting your money's worth at £227.99, even accounting for the fact that you'll have to fork out for a microSD card pretty much right out of the box?

Give us your thoughts below.

is it just me or is sony's strategy since last year to have a new flagship every 6 months, and between that just flood the market with similar low-end handsets?

off the top of my head from the last year in the low-end they've released the miro, tipo, J, U, go, sola, E, L and now this.

Yep... I've lost the ability to even try and keep track of what they do. The Arc S can now be had new for £100, the Xperia S for £130... so, really, maybe Sony can't keep track, either?
