Xperia Tipo – Close Up tour

Sony’s Xperia family of cell phones keeps growing with the latest being the Tipo, a fairly simple smartphone from the electronics giant. The Tipo was made to be a simple to use and hassle free phone. 

It comes with a 3.2-inch touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel camera, and it will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch with a 800 MHz processor. Some other features of note include Sony’s xLoud audio technology, 3GBs of internal memory (expandable with the microSD slot) and a data usage app. The app lets users set limits on how much data they transfer, which could help alleviate costs. The phone is also supposed to feature 24-hours of battery life. 

Sony didn’t release pricing or a specific release date information on the Tipo but the phone is set to come out in the fiscal third quarter (generally, this is July through September).
