The Sony Xperia E has hit the FCC in recent times, and somehow or rather, we missed out on this entry level smartphone, but you know what they say – better late than never! This smartphone is said to retail for approximately £138 as an unlocked device, and don’t be blown away by the hardware specifications that are nothing to shout about. Basically, the Sony Xperia E comes with a 3.5-inch display, 4GB of internal memory, 512MB RAM, and something that you do not see frequently these days, a single core Qualcomm MSM7227A processor that runs things from within.
The FCC filings for the Sony Xperia E did point towards approval for GSM 850, 900, 1800, 1900 bands, in addition to WCDMA bands I and VIII. I suppose if you want a decent looking entry level Android-powered smartphone, then the Sony Xperia E would fit the bill nicely. I’d expect to see it arrive for free on mobile carriers with a new 2-year contract. Parents who want a highly affordable smartphone for their kids might want to consider getting this for them, as it will surely be easy on your pockets in terms of price and size.
