Coming soon to Three – Sony Ericsson Xperia ray.

Today Three confirms it will stock the brand new Sony Ericsson Xperia ray, due this summer.

The latest handset from Sony Ericsson is super slim, only 9.4mm thick, and available in black and champagne colour. It will feature a 3.3” No-Air-Gap Touchscreen that ensures less light is reflected internally, decreasing glare and increasing screen brightness. Perfect to check out images and HD videos captured with the 8.1MP Exmor R Sensor camera on a screen powered by Sony’s Mobile Bravia Engine – which produces some of the clearest, crispest quality images around.

Preloaded with Google Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) software, this handset will offer access to more than 200 thousand apps via Android’s Marketplace. Facebook, Spotify and Foursquare are fully integrated, with Facebook Inside allowing pictures, music, contacts and calendars to be synced, liked and tagged direct from the phone. With a 1GHz processor, even the most heavy application users will find this device easy to use and control.

Sylvia Chind, head of handsets at Three said, “The Sony Ericsson Xperia ray, with the latest in Android software, is an excellent addition to the Three smartphone range. The sleekly designed and technology-laden device will appeal to people who not only want a great looking handset but also the most up-to-date in terms of technology.”
