Sony Xperia Tipo and Tipo Dual: Tiny ICS handsets, one with dual-SIM functionality


sony-xperia-tipo.jpgHot on the heels of the Sony Xperia Miro revealed earlier this morning, Sony have just offered up a pair of bran new Android smartphones to accompany it. Next off Sony’s production lines will be the Sony Xperia Tipo and Tipo Dual.

Seemingly budget-friendly feature phones (as ever, Sony are holding back on pricing and availability), the duo both feature Android Ice Cream Sandwich squeezed inside tiny 103 x 57 x 13mm, 99.4g shell.

Under the hood you’ll find a 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225AA processor powering the show, with a 3.2-inch touchscreen sitting on the front. A 3.2MP camera lies on the back, with no mention of any sort of flash.

Both the phones share similar specs, but of the two the Tipo Dual is the more interesting, as it offers dual-sim functionality. With a press of a button, you can switch between two different SIM profiles and tariffs, without having to reset the handset.

Each phone also lets you set a data usage limit, blocking off 3G web access once you’ve maxed it out and saving you the nasty surprise of a pricey bill come the end of the month.

We’ll have more on all of today’s Sony phones soon, so check back to Tech Digest for more details in the near future.
