The Sony Xperia U is the baby of Sonyís new NXT line up of smartphones. The NXT line debuts a new design language from Sony. The Xperia U comes in a plastic unibody shell thatís has a curved ergonomically designed case. Not going for outright thinness like many of its rivals Sony has instead come up with a subtle attractive design that feels great in the hand and is easy to handle. A transparent strip along the bottom of the handset that houses the antennae and also lights up under certain circumstances is a nice touch that adds little flair to the design. A feather light 110 grams of sleek 12mm thin design this mobile from Sony has the looks to match the personality.
A 3.5 Inch Capacitive touch screen lets you navigate through the Sony Xperia U with fluid movement. A reality display with Mobile BRAVIA engine this screen makes images and videos come to life, colours pop and edges sharp. An on screen QWERTY keypad lets you type with confidence, so messages and text can be typed quickly and hassle free. A scratch resistant screen with Anti reflection coating means you can get on with your day and worry about the more important things in life rather than worrying about your mobile phone screen. Powered by a beefy 1 GHz dual core processor the Xperia U should have more than enough oomph to handle anything you can throw at it.
The Android Operating System gives the Sony Xperia U its kick; It may only be version 2.3 at the moment but Sony have promised an update to the latest version 4.0 some time later in the year. With entertainment by the bucket loads direct from the Android Market you can fill your phone with all of your favourite Books, Movies, Apps and Games.

These have millions of songs and movies to choose from and download to your phone. Blast out music from the built in speaker with the powerful xLoud sound enhancing technology or enjoy a more detailed experience with rich 3D sound through a pair of Sony headphones.
