Mobilk - Sony Mobile Communications ("Sony Mobile") announced a new affordable addition to its Xperia smartphone range, Xperia E. Sonys latest Android smartphone will be available in single SIM version for South Africa and Morocco, and dual SIM version for the Middle East region from Q1 2013.
Xperia E is a compact and competitively priced smartphone that is engineered for simplicity. Available in black, white and pink, Xperia E boasts outstanding HD Voice quality that makes phone calls clearer than ever before. It also features noise cancellation that filters out background noise so consumers can hold crystal clear conversations in any environment.
Xperia E has also been designed to let consumers stay on top of cost and power consumption. The data usage application monitors how much is being spent, while the extended standby mode increases the standby time up to four times. When the screen has been in sleep mode for a few minutes, Wi-Fi and data traffic will be disabled and most applications will be inactive to save battery life. However, calling and messaging will continue to work as normal. Once the screen is touched to wake the device from standby mode, all functions are back to normal.
It will also be available in a dual SIM version - Xperia E dual - so that consumers can easily switch between tariffs with just one touch to stay on the most cost effective plan.

With these recent models, such consumers can now take their first steps into the world of Xperia smartphones.
