Sony Announces New Lineup – Three Xperia Phones and One Xperia Tablet

Today, Sony made a big splash at IFA with the announcement of four new devices for their Xperia holiday lineup. There are three new smartphones and the first ever Xperia tablet. In terms of specs, the Xperia T takes the cake with a monstrous 4.6″ HD “Reality” display, 13MP camera, 1.5″GHz dual-core processor, and is completely PlayStation certified. Following the T, is the Xperia V. It  too offers the same 1.5GHz chip, 13MP camera, and PS-certified gaming. Its only difference is the 4.3″ HD Reality display instead of a 4.6″. 

Following both the T and V, is the Xperia J. The J is a more affordable and mid-range Xperia device. It features a 4.0” FWVGA Display, 5MP backside camera, and comes in at just 9.2mm thick. No word on a processor or 4G LTE connectivity as of yet. Last, but certainly not least, is Sony’s new Xperia S tablet. It has a 9.4″ HD display, is powered by NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 chip, has a protective splash-proof coating, 64GB of storage, and runs Ice Cream Sandwich. For the full list of specs and release times, check below.
