We‚Äôve finally got a date as to when the Xperia TX, also known as the Xperia T in other markets, will be debuting in the Philippines. To be honest, though, it‚Äôs more like an ETA as opposed to an actual date.
And we get it courtesy of Sony’s tie-in with James Bond and the upcoming movie Skyfall. After all, Sony Pictures is one of the studios behind this action film.
According to the Sony Mobile‚Äôs latest press release, the Xperia TX will be available for Pinoy gadget junkies to enjoy come early January 2013.
In case you’ve already forgotten what’s so special about this particular ‘droid, the Sony Xperia TX rocks a Bravia engine-powered 4.55-inch display, with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor chugging under the hood, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, a 13-megapixel cam ‚Äėround the back, and Ice Cream Sandwich as its OS. So it goes without saying that this bad boy will be the new king Android in the Xperia family.
Oh and don’t forget, Sony‚Äôs also giving away a free official made-for-Xperia case for every purchase of the Xperia P, Xperia S and Xperia ion.
Read all about it, and the Xperia TX‚Äôs expected arrival month, in the press release below:
