Mobile World Congress 2012 saw two new Xperia NXT series Android handsets announced by Sony, namely Sony Xperia P and Sony Xperia U. Sony Xperia P is a sexy people pleaser, designed and optimised for your viewing pleasure throughout. If the screen is important to you, Sony Xperia P should push your buttons.

A 4 inch LED-backlit LCD capacitive touchscreen, combined with Reality Display powered by Mobile Bravia Engine ensures that viewing movies and photos is a rich, enjoyable experience. Sony's WhiteMagic display technology is introduced to an Android phone for the first time, allowing you to view your screen in the sunniest conditions, and also giving you an option to have brightness automatically adjusted depending on surroundings, which is a great way to save battery juice. Media content such as videos and photos can be viewed on your big screen wirelessly via DLNA. Sony Entertainment Network gives you access to millions of songs, movies and TV shows, although there is a small monthly fee for the privilege.

SmartDock, exclusive to Sony Xperia P allows you to browse content using a TV remote control and and view on your family TV in full HD. Access Facebook and other social networks plus write emails via a USB wireless  keyboard.

There are changeable caps to enhance the look of your Sony Xperia P, and a very cool transparent element that illuminates in different colours to match photos and artwork viewed. A 1 GHz dual-core processor runs the show, although we think it would have been nice to see quad-core under the hood, considering the vast amount of media viewing technology on board. A screen size above the allocated 4 inches would have also been a nicer touch.

An 8 MP camera graces the rear of Samsung Galaxy P and a VGA snapper resides on the front. Take photos with one click in less than a second with fast capture. NFC technology gives contactless payment too, a feature which is becoming more popular on Android smartphones of late. Following the usual scheme, Sony Xperia P will initially ship with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) on board, upgradeable to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) very soon.

UK Release Date and Price

Due for UK release around April 23rd, Sony Xperia P is now available for pre-order from Clove, unlocked and sim free, in black, priced £378 (inclusive of vat).
