Atlanta - Sony Ericsson
launched its latest Android smartphone for the U.S. market as an unlocked model
at $424 through Newegg.com and other online retailers.

The Xperia Ray is banded to
operate in 3G HSPA mode in AT&T's 850/1900MHz network and in foreign 2.1GHz
networks.

The device, among several
Sony Ericsson Android phones available unlocked in the U.S. and not through
carriers, features a 3.3-inch touchscreen with scratch-resistant mineral-glass
screen, aluminum frame, thin 9.4mm chassis, 8.1-megapixel HD video
camera/camcorder with flash, and front-facing VGA camera for video chats.

It also has a 1GHz processor,
Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) OS and, like other U.S. models from the company, proprietary
Reality Display and Mobile Bravia Engine technologies borrowed from Sony TVs to
enhance the display. A Sony-proprietary Exmor R CMOS sensor enables low-light
picture taking.

Other features include Wi-Fi, DLNA certification, HD video
recording, face and smile detection in the camera, and large f/2.4 aperture.

 It is available in gold, black, white and pink.
