Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray Lands in U.S., Coming Soon to Canada via Telus

Sony Ericsson recently launched the Xperia Ray, which is a small version of the Xperia Arc, and it was launched for people who are looking for a little affordable ‘luxury’. The device was made available in the U.S. via NewEgg, one of the largest online retailers in USA. They are offering unlocked Xperia Ray’s in black, white, gold and pink colors — all of which will run you $379.99 (originally $449.99). The device is compatible with AT&T 3G and T-Mobile, so it worth a look for AT&T customers who want a contract-free 3G device with decent features. Talking about features, the Xperia Ray comes with Android 2.3, a 3.3-inch 854 x 480 screen with the Sony BRAVIA engine, 8.1 MP camera with Sony Exmor R for mobile, is 9.4 mm thin, and has more goodies under its hood.

Also Canadian mobile carrier Telus is planning to launch the device sometime around the holiday season.

“We are very excited to be working together with TELUS to deliver innovative, entertainment-focused devices like the Xperia ray to their customers,” said Peter Farmer, Head of Marketing—North America for Sony Ericsson. “The Xperia ray is an ideal smartphone for TELUS customers who are looking for a powerful Android device that combines beautiful design with innovative multimedia features”.

    Is it correct that you can use 3G on T-Mobile with the Xperia Ray if you buy the international version that is available on Amazon (HSDPA 2100Mhz)?

      Neither the ST18i nor the ST18a will work on US T-Mobile 3G or 4G.  You will probably get only 2G.  Not until they get 1700MHz AND 2100MHz on a phone will you be able to get 3G/4G.

    I REALLY want to get my hands on this cell phone. I need help finding an unlocked version because ROGERS is my current provider here in Canada.
