One of Sony Mobile’s big strategic initiatives is to increase the time to market efficiency. A weakness over the last few years is the large gap between when a phone was announced until it was finally released.
It seems as if the company is beginning to improve in this regard as UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has announced that both the Sony Xperia T and Xperia J smartphones will be shipping on 5 September i.e. next week. Pricing remains a mystery for now, but Carphone Warehouse says that it will be “confirmed shortly”. Unfortunately the Xperia V will not be sold in the UK.
The retailer will also be stocking the Xperia Tablet S and announced that it will cost £329 for the Wi-Fi version and £429 for the 3G version. Details on availability are still being ironed out.
