The Sony Xperia P looks like the perfect partner for a MacBook Air

in Xperia P


The Sony Xperia P has to be one of the sexiest phones released in 2012 to our eyes. The unibody aluminium construction and unique design is really a sight to behold, especially the silver version which is our favourite over the black and red variants. The guys over at XPERIA.cz sized up the handset against another iconic product – the Apple MacBook Air.

Looking at the two side-by-side, both products could even pass off as being from the same family if we didn’t know better. The MacBook Air comes with its own unibody design and the metal colour is almost the same tone as that on the silver Xperia P (although the latter is darker). The Xperia P isn’t the only 2012 model to come in aluminium, the Xperia ion also has a classy aluminium finish. We just hope this trend of metallic Xperia handsets continues.

  • alright.

  • its good netver an issue design wirh sony its the hardware i just wish they put some serious hardwere#

  • Pavel X

    MacBook with Windows 7 LOL

  • Sexy phone. I must say

  • Feanor

    But the patchy finish of the body is really annoying. On my phone the aluminium frame and the plastic cover on top have a slightly different hue. Other samples that I saw in different dealers have similar issues, others more and others less.On the contrary a friend has one unit of almost perfect finish :-((
    Anyone else facing the same problem?I wonder if Sony would replace my unit if I proved that other units are of a better finishing quality.

  • Edi

    Because the Xperia P is not compatible with OS X, iCloud and iTunes.

  • Feanor

    But considering that the hardware of the Xperia P is not bad either, I’d go always for the superior style. I was recently playing with the Samsung Galaxy S3 and I couldn’t warm up to it, although it has superior specifications. The case looked like every other telephone (actually the blue looked really cheesy) and the UI was aesthetically solid and unwieldy, still pretty much an iOS copy reskin of Android. Xperia P looked instantly much classier (and it’s no slug either).

    I prefer my VAIO Z with my Xperia S. Aluminium is such ugly compared to carbon!

  • djabag

    Beautiful yes, but the aluminium surface is to slippery to make the phone steady in the hand.
    This effect the handling in a very negative way. But I love the red colour, it reminds me of the Z1010 from the past.

    Arco S with it’s rubbery surface will be my next one from Sony

  • AlexBurnout

    Jesus… Why did you posted news with this crappy Apple laptop?! Don’t you know anything about Sony’s silver ultrabook, Sony VAIO T? Are you damn kidding me Xperia Blog? BTW its only available colour its damn SILVER!!!

  • AlexBurnout

    You rock bra

  • ProWeirdoJustSaid

    yeah looks nice, but let’s talk about how they suit together with usage, not design :)

  • Feanor

    It’s edgy, so it actually holds well. My old arc is much more slippery.

  • Rene

    Xperia Carbon Fiber, YES

  • +1

  • Coollead

    Bridge for Mac exists, and lets you sync iTunes to your Xperia.

  • ab

    The Xperia P looks like the perfect partner for a VAIO T.

  • rafi

    Wow xperia p with macbook hope no legal action taken against this photo. Hahahaha…. sony pls release limited edition xperia s nxt with unibody… that will be more cool. Not that plastic are bad meterial but compare to price range my xperia s should also came with unibody. ;-)

  • It’s simple math, if Sony combined their style with serious hardware, they’d be untouchable. But they choose aesthetics which is subjective and not a good strategy which has lost them a lot of marketshare

  • recursive

    But apple made it first!

  • JenH

    sorry….I just don’t like apple stuff.

  • Anon

    *Cough* Sorry, I was just sick a little bit… SONY!!! ftw
    Sure it goes better with my silver Vaio SA…

  • LOL , it take my attention too , btw wtf macbook advertasing in xperia blog ?

  • meta96

    Sony should have done this before, so they could have seen how aluminium has to feel/look.
    BTW, sony launch 32GB/64GB xperia P(s), please

  • Edi

    But only to sync with iTunes on computer.

    You can not use iTunes direct on Xperia.

  • Coollead

    So what part of my statement is false? You can use an Xperia just fine on a Mac.

  • Feanor

    I understand your point but I don’t think good specs translates to good sales more than good design. Most buyers are no tech experts. The iphone is the best selling phone of the planet because of it’s iconic status as a result of careful design and premium construction. It’s specification is actually pretty average but people don’t care (or don’t realize).
    I think Sony needs better design and marketing strategies than better specs: Most retailers will not even bother to present to customers Sony phones because it’s easier to sell what unknowing people trust already by word of mouth. So, more than quad-core processors, Sony needs to keep the good job in design and good relationships with retailers. ;-)

  • TGO

    Need a mirrored screen protector on that

  • Edi

    But without iCloud.

  • razec

    Xperia S in carbon fibre FTW
