Xperia S hits UK pre-order for £468, stock due early March [Update]

Sony_Xperia_SThe black sim-free version of the Sony Xperia S is now up for pre-order at UK retailer Clove, giving the first hint of pricing. Clove has priced it at £468 and expects that the first units will arrive in the week commencing 5 March 2012. The date is certainly good news as we thought a late March release was more likely. Let’s hope there’s no slippage.

Whilst the price may feel a bit steep, it is broadly in the same price category of the Xperia arc (£459.99) when it was on pre-order a year ago. Those looking for a better sim-free deal may however want to wait to see what other retailers are offering before taking the plunge.

Update: We’ve just noticed that Play.com are doing it for £449.99 and have a launch date of 9 March 2012.

Update 2: Scrap that, it gets even better. eBuyer have it for £429.99 for launch of 12 March 2012. Fill yer boots!

    I have been using AOSP 6.0 developed my mickybart on my Xperia S for many months and it’s reasonably stable and feature rich. The phone is still smooth and responsive. Photo of my home screen and one of the phone docked with daydream displayed while charging.
