BARCELONA: Sony failed to impress during its press conference at MWC, launching two dual-core Android devices as it looked to extend its Xperia range.
The Japanese manufacturer used it event to reveal the Sony Xperia P and Xperia U devices.
The flagship Xperia P will feature a a 4in display, and is the first handset to use Sony's White Magic display technology. The smartphone will also come with an 8-megapixel camera that will shoot 1080p video, NFC and a unibody frame.
Meanwhile, the Xperia U will have a 3.5in form factor, a 1GHz dual-core processor and 5-megapixel camera. It is expected to be released some time in Q2.
Disappointingly, both devices will ship with the outdated Android Gingerbread operating system. Both are expected to be upgradeable to more modern Ice Cream Sandwich after launch.
