Along with the Sony Xperia miro, the Japanese company also announced its first dual-SIM capable Android phone, the Xperia tipo. The Xperia tipo is a budget Android phone and will come in single SIM and dual-SIM variants. The handset packs in a relatively small 3.2-inch display with HVGA (320*480) resolution, and will be powered by an 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM.
The dual-SIM version of the phone will also have a dedicated button on its side to switch between the two SIM cards. Other specs of the tipo include FM radio, GPS with A-GPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, a bunch of sensors, 2.5GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot and a 3.2MP camera at its back that is also capable of recording videos in VGA resolution.
The 13mm thick body of the handset also packs in a beefy 1500mAh battery for up to 24 hours of battery life under heavy usage. Both the variants of the tipo will be running on Ice Cream Sandwich. Sony did not reveal any pricing information but the handsets are expected to hit the market sometime in Q3 of this year in black, white, red and blue colors.
