The Xperia E has a curvy design and is quite light weighing a mere 115gms. It is quite thin too measuring at 11mm thin. It also has a 1500mAh battery.

Sony has also announced a dual-SIM version of the Xperia E, called the Xperia E dual. The specifications of the phone are the same with the biggest difference being that the E dual will work on Android 4.0 ICS straight out of the box and will be upgradable to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in at a future date.

Xperia E comes equipped with the in-built “WALKMAN” application that includes xLOUD audio technology, 3D surround sound and a manual equalizer. The smartphone also has access to Sony’s music streaming service, Music Unlimited. The Xperia E also comes with DLNA wireless connectivity.

“Consumers looking to take their first steps into the world of Xperia smartphones would be well advised to look at Xperia E or Xperia E dual.
