Three Mobile to stock the Sony Ericsson Xperia ray

Barely hours after its official reveal, UK network Three have announced they’ll be stocking the Xperia ray on release day.

Set to arrive in black and champagne, for the classier phone customer, it’s under 10mm thick, and runs the newest version of Android, Gingerbread 2.3.

Sony Ericsson are keen to stress the 3.3-inch touchscreen has is a no-airgap display, meaning reduced glare and sunlight interference.

Like its Xperia stablemates, the Xperia Arc and Xperia Neo, there’s the top-rated 8.1-megapixel camera paired with Sony’s Exmor R Sensor. The camera will also be capable of 720 HD video-recording.

Its Mobile Bravia Engine means all your pictures should appear pin-sharp on the Xperia ray’s capacitive touchscreen, whilst Sony’s (previously unmentioned) own on-demand Qriocity video service looks set to go head-to-head with HTC’s own Watch service. Facebook inside Xperia will also be baked into the Xperia ray, bringing some clever Facebook integration across the smartphone.

Sylvia Chind, head of handsets at Three said, “The Sony Ericsson Xperia ray, with the latest in Android software, is an excellent addition to the Three smartphone range. The sleekly designed and technology-laden device will appeal to people who not only want a great looking handset but also the most up-to-date in terms of technology.”

We’re not sure if it’s the most up-to-date, arriving into an increasingly busy smartphone crowd, with some packing 3D cameras and dual-core processors. More news when it arrives at Recombu Towers.
