New Xperia P and Xperia U Smartphones from Sony Unveiled

Now part of Sony, Sony Mobile Communications showcases the new Xperia NXT series of smartphones, including the flagship Xperia S and the new additions Xperia P and Xperia U.

Xperia P and Xperia U will be available globally in the second quarter of this year.

In addition, Xperia S, the ultimate HD smartphone, is now shipping to markets across the globe, with first sales in the Sony Style store in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress.

The new smartphones have intriguing design features including the "transparent element", a band that encircles the base of the phone and also integrates invisible antenna components. The transparent element illuminates when receiving calls, texts and notifications.

The new User Interface (UI) follows the same design principles and enhances the Android experience - offering applications and content with a simple and clean look. A new album, video player and music player will deliver entertainment experiences and the new UI design also allows users to access their favourite application direct from the lock-screen.

Xperia P and Xperia U boast Reality Display powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine for clarity, along with fast capture to take the camera from sleep to snap in a little over a second with a single key press. Both smartphones come with 1 GHz dual-core processors.

As with Xperia S, Xperia P and Xperia U offer access to the Sony Entertainment Network. Out of the box, users can watch the latest Hollywood blockbusters on Video Unlimited or listen to songs through Music Unlimited.

With a full aluminium unibody design, Xperia P debuts WhiteMagic display technology from Sony for the first time on a smartphone. Sony claims that WhiteMagic technology delivers the brightest viewing experience; whether at the beach or on the ski slopes. Smart power efficiency automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen to the surroundings to conserve battery life.

The new SmartDock, exclusively for Xperia P, offers simple connectivity to multiple screens, turning the smartphone into an entertainment hub for the living room. Using a TV remote control users can navigate their smartphone?s media content to watch their HD videos, the latest movies or favourite TV shows on the big screen. With USB support in the SmartDock, they can also use a wireless keyboard and mouse to write emails, browse and post on Facebook or watch videos from YouTube on their TV.
