Sony Xperia Miro Android smartphone unveiled on Facebook
This week Sony has been teasing a new smartphone on Facebook. It has finally been unveiled as the Sony Xperia Miro – an Android 4.0 smartphone with a 3.5-inch screen and lots of integration with your favourite social networks and entertainment features on board, available in a quartet of cool colours. Read on for more on the friendliest phone you’ll hear about this week. Sony and gadget fans and Facebook users were able to hasten the unveil of the device by clicking on Sony’s Xperia smartphone Facebook page. The result was the reveal of the Sony Xperia Miro, not the Sony Xperia GX, as had been rumoured.
From early days it appears the Sony Xperia Miro is a mid-entry device with lots of socially aware features letting you gain easier access to your Facebook contacts, and other social networking sites – a teaser ad for the device says users can “stay connected”.
The Sony Ericsson Miro will come in four trendy looking shades: silver, pink, black and gold on the base and surround of the rather trendy looking smartphone.
As features go you’ve got the latest Android 4.0 operating system straight out of the box. No waiting months for the update here. The Sony Xperia Miro can also boast a 5-megapixel camera, with 30 frames-per-second video recording.
As cameras go, that doesn’t sound like challenging some of the better cameraphones such as Sony’s Xperia Arc S, but it’s not always the size of the sensor that counts. With is social aspirations, we’re expecting photos to be good enough to share to your Facebook and Twitter accounts. A front-facing camera also lets you engage in video calls.
The Sony Xperia Miro doesn’t quite sound like a Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPhone 4S competitor, but it does look a decent proposition for those looking for a mid-entry smartphone with social and entertainment features on board.
Sony has yet to reveal when we’ll be able to get our hands on the Sony Xperia Miro but we shouldn’t have to wait too long. We’ll let you know its release date as soon as we find out.
