The latest addition to Sony’s Xperia range of smartphones, the Miro, has been £126 by online retailer Clove, putting it right into bargain basement territory.
Announced last month via Facebook, the Miro is the Japanese company’s first bona fide cheap Android blower, since it took over the smartphone business from former partner Ericsson.
Obviously at that price point the Miro is a relatively low-end effort, featuring a 3.5-inch HVGA display, an 800MHz processor and a five-megapixel camera.
However, it is powered by the Ice Cream Sandwich iteration of Google’s rather than some dusty old variant of Gingerbread, which makes it a pretty attractive option for entry-level buyers.
Other natty additions include customisable illuminated notifications for incoming missives, a front-facing camera for video calls and Sony’s xLOUD audio tech.
Contract options are as-yet unannounced, as is an official release date. But word on the street is it will drop sometime in Q3. So keep ‘em peeled.
