Xperia rayThe anticipated Sony Ericsson Xperia ray has just hit pre-order in the UK. has a black sim-free variant up for pre-order for £349.99 and a 15th August release date.

This puts it in the same price frame as the Xperia neo which has a 3.7-inch display versus the 3.3-inch display of the Xperia neo. We’d imagine the price should settle closer to the £300 shortly after launch which would make it a more attractive offering, despite its aluminium chassis.

    You have to clarify something for me.
    When you say ‘despite’ here, do you mean that the price will drop to £300 despite the aluminium chassis, or that it will be an attractive phone despite the aluminium chassis?
    The way you wrote it made me first think you meant the second meaning, which didn’t make any sense.

    “the 3.3-inch display of the Xperia neo” – typo, must be “of the Xperia ray”

    We should have been clearer – but we meant the price will drop despite the high cost of an aluminium chassis.
