Sony unveiled a couple of new handsets at CES this week - one for the US market (Xperia Ion) and one for the international market (Xperia S). Both are powerful devices and should be the first to be released under the Sony name (not Sony Ericsson), and the latter is now available for pre-order from Clove UK for £467.99 with an expected release at the beginning of March. While the Xperia S will be available in both black and silver, the pre-order is only available for the former, as the latter will be exclusive to Phones4U initially.

The Xperia S was long rumored as the Nozomi and packs some pretty stellar guts under its ultra-seek hood:

  • 4.3-inch 1280x720 display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 32GB built-in storage
  • 12MP Exmor R camera
  • NFC
  • Android 2.3.x (will be upgraded to ICS in Q2)

To get a closer look at the Xperia S, check out our hands-on video from CES:

    "with an expected release at the beginning of Market."
    March you mean?

    Should probably get your journalism straight and learn what 'VAT' means.

    This device will cost you £467.99.

    "Internal phone storage: 1 to 1.5 GB
    Flash Memory: 32 GB eMMC"

    Get your journalist straight. Everyone is getting this wrong, and it's even on their website! They're literally giving you the specifications, and everyone's missing out on it!

      This was posted along with Sony's announcement at CES, so all information in the post is what we had at the time (all give by Sony). Thus, it was before the information was on Sony's site.

      With that said, the "1 to 1.5GB" internal storage isn't what we're referring to when we say "32GB built-in storage." The 'internal storage' referred to on Sony's site is for app installation and the like. The 32GB built-in storage is what Sony is referring to as the eMMC.

    Man, I want this phone. Without VAT, it's around $560 USD. Hopefully other online vendors have similar or better pricing in the next week or two!
