Two Swedish networks, Telia and Tre (Three), have opened pre-orders for the Sony Xperia V (LT25i). The good news is that the expected launch of these handsets is just three weeks away i.e. 5 December 2012. From what we can tell, off-contract prices range from 4,995 SEK (£465, €579, $738) to 5,295 SEK (£492, €614, $782). However, maybe someone with better language skills can let us know if we’re wrong.
There were some fears that all international versions of the Xperia V would be delayed until the new year when Sony Mobile France confirmed that its SKU would land in January 2013 with Android Jelly Bean. At the time, we speculated that launch dates may differ depending on region. The dates mark the first firm launch details for the handset outside of Japan. We’ll bring you news as other markets come on tap.
