The Sony Xperia V is expected to arrive in early December, according to a Swedish retailer who has a track record for knowing such things. Dustin.se is listing the handset now with a pre-order price of SEK 4,299 + VAT, (pre-VAT price of £404, €508 and $656 US) and a December 3 launch. Considering that CES is just a few weeks afterward, it stands to reason that an educated consumer might skip on the Xperia V in hopes of something more powerful in the new year.
Of course, we don’t even expect to see this handset come stateside with any carrier support. Our instinct tells us to look for an unlocked GSM model, much like other Sony models.
