Sony Debuts Xperia E1 Music Phone
For some reason Sony chose to debut some handsets this week, instead of CES or MWC 2014. Among them there’s the Xperia E1 model shown below, a lower end device with a 4 inch screen and 800 x 480 pixel resolution.
This model stands out through its speaker, capable of 100 dB output and it comes with a free 30 days pass for Sony Entertainment Network. The handset will have a dual SIM version and inside it we find a dual core 1.2 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage. Xperia E1 will be available in black, white and purple and it will feature a 1700 mAh battery.
There’s no pricing yet, but expectations are around 145 quid or so, free of contract. This budget Xperia has a dedicated Walkman button, something we haven’t seen in a long time. The product relies on technologies like ClearAudio+ and xLOUD for an excellent acoustic experience, so this is truly a Wakman phone at its core.
