Sony Xperia E Review: First Look

 

Sony have introduced the Xperia E as a new entry-level handset with HD Voice plus data and power-saving tools for new smartphone users.

We’re still not sure of an exact arrival time for the Sony Xperia E, but it’ll be arriving within Q1 2013, which pins its touchdown anywhere between January and March.
