in Firmware, Tips & Tricks, Xperia tipo


The budget Sony Xperia tipo is now out in the United Kingdom. Carphone Warehouse is selling the handset for £119.95 sim-free or you can pick it up for £89.95 (plus £10 pop-up) on pay-as-you-go. O2 also has the handset available directly on PAYG for £99.99, along with Orange. However it is out of stock at the latter.

To coincide with the launch, the Sony Xperia tipo manual has also appeared. The download link [5MB] is below for the 123-page English manual, or you can find it in different languages here.

The PTCRB has also certified the firmware for both the ST21i and ST21a (North American) versions. The latest firmware certified is interestingly 11.0.A.0.30, which should be a version of Android 4.0.4. See some pics of the handset below, courtesy of ePrice.

    Well look at its finishing… Its a low ender aftr all… If Priced at 8k Rs, It will kick galaxy Y’s butt off….

    i like the design but the specs are errr! It is acceptable if they will put the xperia mini specs with xperia tipo design for entry level device and for sure galaxy y has no match for the tipo brothers (dual sim, single sim)

  • DragonClaw

    Looks awesome. This phone. And will run 4.0.4. Hope this phone gets the much needed (especially for the low end phones) attraction from developers.

    Xperia Mini Still exist bro…. And also look at the price point ya…. Still Galaxy Y doesnt match the specs of Tipo. “ICE CREAM SANDWICH”

  • jxPerience

    ok, then your the ugliest people on earth.

  • jxPerience

    yeah mini is still there but there are lots of flaws with mini, blinking screen, dim screen brightness and haptic keys are too senstive and sometimes working by itself, have heating issue that cause screen unresponsive. So i need an overhauled xperia mini with the design of tipo.
