Xperia rayThe Sony Ericsson Xperia ray is due to launch very shortly and we’ve come across a number of worthy news bits. The first is an impressive video recording sample from the Xperia ray taken by Rog from SE-First. The conditions were quite testing, taken at a Prince concert with low-light and high levels of noise, however the Xperia ray seemed to handle it all with ease (see the video here).

If you are interested in the design and concept behind the Xperia ray then this feature from VR-Zone is a fascinating read. The guys managed to spend some time with Sony Ericsson management (including the design manager and colour/material senior designer) and discovered why they chose certain colours. We also learn that the phone took 18 months to develop from concept to launch and find out the name is taken from the Japanese “rei”, of the word Ki-rei which means beauty, elegant.

In other Xperia ray news, Vodafone UK has announced on their site that the gold version will be coming soon. There are no dates or pricing but these should be forthcoming. Lastly recently got hands on with the phone and has an unboxing and preview video that we’ve attached below.
