Sony's Xperia Sola, featuring the much-hyped 'floating touch display', is now available for pre-order at online shopping site Flipkart. Priced at Rs. 19,999, the device is expected to release in the fourth week of May.
Xperia Sola's availability comes shortly after Sony's another Xperia device, Xperia U, went up for pre-order. To refresh your memory, Sony had announced Xperia Sola in February this year. The Xperia Sola previously codenamed Pepper MT27i, will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread out-of-the-box, but has been promised an ICS update sometime in Q2 2012.
The Sola has a 3.7-inch 854x480 pixel display with the Mobile Bravia engine, a 1GHz dual-core NovaThor U8500 processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, and 8GB of built-in storage.
The 9.9mm-thick Sony Xperia Sola weighs 107 grams, and will be available in black, white and red colours. As for connectivity options, the Xperia Sola features 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with DLNA and hotspot functionality, Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR and A2DO, microUSB 2.0, stereo FM with RDS, and NFC - the device will come with two NFC Sony SmartTags.
It runs on a 1,320 mAh battery, rated to deliver up to 470 hours of standby time, 6 hours of talk time, and 40 hours of continuous music playback.
