Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is among the latest models with Android announced by its makers. It should come to the UK around the middle of August, sporting a launch price of 349.99 quid, in the SIM free version.

The info comes from The Carphone Warehouse and Play.com, with the latter taking pre-orders for the smartphone. The Xperia Ray is pretty much the Xperia Neo, as far as hardware goes, but with a smaller screen. Inside you find a  single core 1GHz CPU, 512MB RAM, a microSD card slot and a 3.3 inch display with a 854 x 480 pixel resolution.

The handset measures 9.4mm in thickness and weighs 100 grams. Its battery should provide about 7 hours of talk time.
