The super-slim design and sturdy aluminum body signal a return to Sony products that feel as good as they look, giving it a more premium feel than the Android rank and file.

We’re particularly fond of the clear, glass-like stripe toward the bottom, which lights up when you turn the phone on, offers a strip of all the standard Android buttons, and (oddly enough) actually houses the antenna within a subtle checkerboard pattern. Sony will offer the 1.5GHz dual-core phone in 16GB and 32GB versions, but unlike the Xperia Ion, you won’t be able to add storage via microSD.

Like the Xperia Ion, it also has a 12-megapixel rear camera that should outclass most of its Android competitors. It will run Android 2.3 as well, which leaves it lagging behind a bit on the software front until Sony releases an Android 4.0 update.
