A new addition to the Sony Xperia line up was announced last week. The Sony Xperia E is a new entry level handset, joining a number of notable midrange and high end devices in the Japanese manufacturer’s line of Android smartphones.
Last week, Sony unveiled the new budget handset, along with details of pricing for the SIM free handset. In the UK, you can expect to pay around £130 mark to get your hands on the SIM free handset. Despite its low price tag, the Sony Xperia E still packs plenty of impressive features. These include the likes of the 3.5 inch touchscreen display, 3.15 megapixel camera, 1 GHz single-core processor and 4GB of internal storage, which can be expanded using the integrated microSD slot.
In terms of software, the Sony Xperia E is actually more up to date than many of its higher end counterparts within the Xperia line up. It comes with Android Jellybean v4.1, whilst most other Xperia phones are still awaiting an update from their current Android Ice Cream Sandwich platform.

When the Sony Xperia E was announced, Sony stated that availability of the phone would come at some point in Q1 2013. However, Carphone Warehouse has offered a more specific time frame, stating that the phone will hit the UK in February. The well known high street retailer has also made the handset available for pre-order on its website, applying to the SIM free variant.
Sony will also be launching a dual-SIM variant of the Xperia E. The Sony Xperia E Dual will come with largely the same spec list, but with the added bonus of dual-SIM functionality, meaning two SIM cards can be installed on the phone. This attribute is likely to appeal to frequent travellers, or those who wish to keep business and personal calls separate without having two phones.
