Sony Xperia S Now Shipping Globally

It was back in January that we first got our hands on what was to be Sony’s first smartphone after parting ways with Ericsson – the Xperia S. Shortly after its unveiling at CES it was released in select European markets and until now hadn’t been available anywhere else (unless unlocked). Today, the Sony Xperia blog announced that the device was being shipped globally but they want to let carrier partners announce pricing and availability details. For us folks in the U.S., we wont be getting the Xperia S here in the states but we can look for it’s 4.7-inch LTE counterpart landing on AT&T as the Xperia Ion┬ásometime in the second quarter.

The Xperia S is a pretty sweet machine sporting a dual-core 1.5Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.3-inch 720p display, NFC and killer 12MP camera. The device currently ships running Android 2.3 Gingerbread although Sony plans on an ICS update sometime in Q2 of this year.

If you think this may be your next device why don’t you sound off in the comments below.
