Sony Mobile look like they are onto a winner with the Xperia S. Apparently demand for the handset is outstripping supply, leading Sony to increase shipments. Retailers such as Argos, Littlewoods and Tesco are also looking to sell the Xperia S. Sony shifted just under 10,000 Xperia S handsets for the week ended 23 March 2012 according to league tables. The uSwitch Mobile Tracker has the Xperia S sitting at number five in the top 10 chart currently, which isn’t a bad result at all.

Mobile Magazine reports that a source close to Sony said that the “Sony Xperia S is storming the ranks. It is forecast to be in the top five in the next seven days. We can’t get enough of them – demand is outstripping supply. And Sony is trying to get more stock shipped out”. Mobile retail staff are also echoing these comments. A T-mobile assistant said: “We are selling loads. After you give the customer a demo, when they see the screen, they are sold. It’s an easy phone to sell.” Let’s hope the strong sales continues.
