Xperia ray and active, yet more Sony Ericsson Android action

Xperia ray and active, yet more Sony Ericsson Android actionSony Ericsson has cranked out a stupid number of Android smartphones already this year. At MWC we met the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, Arc, Neo and Pro, and the manufacturer also recently announced the Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro.

Well, I hope you’ve got room in your smartphone stomach for more of them Sony Ericsson meatballs, ‘cause the manufacturer has only gone and announced two more, namely the Xperia ray and active.

The Xperia ray is described as an “Irresistibly elegant Android smartphone”. It comes in gold, pink, black and white, with a 3.3in display, 300MB of internal storage (expandable to 32GB), a 1GHz processor and an 8.1MP camera.

The Xperia active is apparently “The ultimate smartphone for an active life.” It’ll be available in various combinations of red/orange, white and black, and Sony Ericsson boasts that it can “handle any conditions in any weather”. The Xperia active is water and dust resistant, and the scratch-resistant screen works even with wet fingers.

The durable Xperia active has a 3in screen, 1GB internal storage (again expandable to 32GB), a 1GHz processor and 5MP camera.

Both the Xperia ray and active have Reality Displays with SE’s BRAVIA Engine, with Gingerbread doing the OS honours. They’re expected to land in Q3 in “selected markets”.

Three have announced on their blog that they'll be having the Ray "soon". Looks like another generic SEM effort to me, nothing to write home about. Android is definitely my favourite OS, having also tried Bada, WebOS, iOS, Symbian (shudder) and Blackberry, but there's so little innovation in the handsets that every upgrade feels the same.
Someone needs to start doing something Motorla-esque like the Flipout again, just for variety... not that i'd buy it, lol.
