Sony Xperia tipo and tipo dual are entry-level ICS droids

By on 11:13

Sony surprised everyone when they announced the Xperia miro and the surprises keep coming - the company also announced the entry-level ICS droids called Sony Xperia tipo and tipo dual. What's unique about the Xperia tipo dual is that it's the company's first dual-SIM device.
Sony Ericsson Xperia tipo
The Xperia tipo is a compact phone (103 x 57 x 13 mm, 99.4g) and features a 3.2" HVGA TFT screen with scratch-resistant mineral glass. It will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch, and is powered by an 800MHz processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225AA chipset).

The phone has the essentials - a 3.2MP camera, 2.9GB of built-in memory (expandable by a microSD card), 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB port and a 1500mAh battery. On the connectivity side, there's HSPA-enabled 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS.
The Sony Xperia tipo will be available in a dual-SIM version too - called Xperia tipo dual. Both cards will not be active at the same time - it's not a dual standby deal. Instead, a special button on the side of the tipo dual would allow you to toggle the currently active SIM.
