It’s all about Mobile World Congress at the moment, baby, and now we’re being told to brace ourselves for the Sony Xperia P.
While sipping pints at ye olde Rumour Mill pub, we used to refer to the Sony Xperia P as the LT22i. Confusingly, its codename has been mentioned as both the Nypon and Nyphon. Instinctively, I really want to type Nyphone, but that’s just asking for trouble; I have no quarrel with you, Apple.
The Sony Xperia P name comes by way of some Indonesian telecom authority. Yes, the very same one that recently outed the ST25i Kumquat as the Sony Xperia U. Both are expected to pop along to Barcelona in a few weeks.
With the Sony Xperia S being revealed at CES last month, it’s clear that the Japanese manufacturer is embracing a new A-Z naming policy, though if there’s any logic at work it’s completely beyond me. Behold:
- Sony Xperia S: 4.3in display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 12MP camera, 32GB on-board storage
- Sony Xperia U: 3.5in display, dual-core 1GHz processor, 5MP camera
- Sony Xperia P: 4in display, dual-core 1GHz processor, 8MP camera
So S is higher than both U and P? Way to confuse the hell out of everyone, Sony.
