The Sony Xperia SP - Available now

09 May, Sydney, Australia - Following last month's announcement for the Sony Xperia SP, Sony Mobile Australia has today revealed pricing and availability for the latest model to join the Xperia smartphone line up for 2013. The Xperia SP delivers 4G LTE performance and an exceptional viewing experience, with a razor sharp HD screen housed in a beautiful design. It is available now from Virgin Mobile Australia, from Vodafone from May 15th and from Telecommunication Retailers later this month.




The Xperia SP offers the best of Sony with stunning premium design and a range of technologies including a 4.6" HD screen for the ultimate viewing experience; the latest camera features for impressive pictures and videos; NFC connectivity for One-touch function; Battery STAMINA Mode for extended battery life; and Sony's signature media apps for enjoying photos, music, movies and games on the go.


Adding to the unique design innovation is the colour-changing 'transparent element' with customisable illuminations allowing you to personalise incoming calls and text messages. And you can even set the illuminations to pulse to the beat of your favourite music. Check out how to customise the Xperia SP here.
