Sony Xperia P goes gold for Nordic Facebook contest

In the past, the Sony Xperia P has been recognized in Europe as an award-winning “green” phone. We have also seen Sony produce the phone in a pink version. Now Sony is upping the ante by combining color with material for their latest version, a gold Xperia P. The unibody phone is likely gold-plated with 24k gold over the aluminum frame rather than being molded out of gold. Even that gold plating should be enough to really drive up the retail price, but we can only guess since no details were provided as to whether it would even be made available.

Sony produced this latest version for a competition they are conducting via their Facebook page for customers in Nordic countries. Hopefully Sony fans in that country were following the Sony Facebook page and entered by telling what “gold Friday” means to them as the deadline appears to have passed.
