The new 007 movie will, as usual, feature some rather awkward and obvious product placements. Remember Bond jumping into that Ford Fiesta in the previous film? Yeah. That.
It seems that O2 will bag the exclusive on his new phone – the Sony Xperia T.
Well, we assume this is a limited exclusivity deal, because Three have told us that they were getting it too. O2 tell us that it’ll be launched as “The Bond Phone” exclusively to O2 in black, so there’s the chance that perhaps Three will get it in another colour, or we’ll just carry on sitting in the corner getting confused. Something.
Update – OK, apparently they mean “exclusive” in the sense that it’s the only version pre-loaded with Bond content, like a 007 ringtone (dang-a-dang-dang-dang), themes, screensavers, behind-the-scenes video blogs and a geo tagged photo gallery showing the film’s locations. It also comes in a special James Bond box.
Perhaps we should say “The special Bond version of the Xperia T with ringtones, screensavers, maps, screensavers and 007 videos is Exclusive to O2″.. ?
So you can get the Xperia T elsewhere, but it won’t have the Bond stuff on, and girls won’t swoon over you either. Loser.
You want to be Bond? Get the O2 version. Otherwise you’re just a “normal” with a really nice phone, dude.
Anyhow, as you’ve seen in our unboxing it’s got a 4.6″ hi-def screen, 13 megapixel camera, 1.5GHz dual-core chip, NFC, 1080p HD video recording and integrated lasers to shoot badies.. *PEOW* *PEOW* ….. maybe.
