Sony has recently added a new budget model to its Android powered Xperia range. Sony’s range of handsets includes a number of notable high end and midrange devices, until now has not featured a prominent entry level device.

Called the Sony Xperia E, the new model is by no means most advanced smartphone out there, but it comes with plenty of useful features considering its price tag. Key features of the phone include a 3.2 megapixel camera, 1GHz processor and a 3.5 inch touchscreen. It also comes with 4GB internal storage which can be expanded with the built in microSD slot, and has all the usual connectivity features like Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth. In terms of its software, it actually has the latest version of the Android operating system also known as jellybean, while some of its higher end counterparts are still awaiting an update to the new software.

Sony only announced the Xperia E a few days ago, but pricing for the phone has already been announced according to Xperia Blog. As a budget phone, the Sony Xperia E is of course much more affordable than higher end devices like the Xperia T. For £128 here in the UK ($205 or €159) you can get your hands on the unlocked version, which comes in black, white and pink variants.

Sony will also be launching a dual-sim version of the phone, which will have the exact same spec list along with the added benefit of dual-sim functionality. The phone is likely to appeal to those who frequently travel abroad or you wish to keep business and personal calls separate without having two different phones. The price for this version was slightly higher at £136 ($280 or €169).

Europe is set to be the first market to receive the Sony Xperia E and Xperia E dual, and it’s anticipated  that the phone will roll out at some point during Q1 next year. Once more information regarding its pricing and release schedule and made available we will keep you updated.
