Xperia TL offers Sony’s best HD viewing on a smartphone with a superb 4.6-inch HD Reality Display (1280 x 720), powered by the Mobile BRAVIA® Engine for razor sharp clarity and brilliance. The viewing experience on Xperia TL is accentuated by a stylish, sleek form factor that emphasizes the display. For those looking to take their content from their smartphone screen to the TV screen, Xperia TL connects through HDMI with MHL support or wirelessly through DLNA.   

To make enjoying content across devices even easier, Xperia TL supports One-touch connectivity with  NFC. Now, you can conveniently and instantaneously enjoy your music and photos across an array of NFC enabled devices by simply touching one to another to establish a wireless connection without a cumbersome pairing process. To get started with the One-touch experience, Xperia TL comes with one Xperia SmartTag in the box.  Using NFC  technology, Xperia SmartTags let you perform  a variety of customizable functions for different locations and situations.

Featured in the upcoming James Bond cinema release Skyfall, Xperia TL will be used in the film by 007 himself. As the official Bond phone, it will come preloaded with exclusive Bond content which includes behind the scenes footage, interviews, clips, wallpapers, ring tones, and more.

AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network**, covering 275 million people. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. That means AT&T customers are able to enjoy a widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas. With other carriers, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you may be on a much slower 3G network.

    My Dad is still using a Captivate (+CM7), I may get him this for xmas. He could use a phone with a good camera...too bad he's stuck with at&t's shitty excuse for a network.

    Sony obviously blew their chance to gain traction with Android two years ago. Love how nobody cares anymore. They deserve it.
