If you’re a UK resident and on the lookout for Sony’s Xperia S flagship, today isn’t your lucky day, that goes for the people who’ve pre-ordered the device from online retailer Play and were expecting shipment starting today.
Play has delayed the device, which was previously on track for a release on January 30 – today, and says the new expected date to be February 13, although that is subject to change too.
Clove, another online retailer, went on record saying that the device will be available SIM-free from their website in the first week of March, with stock arriving on March 6 or 7, placing the arrival of the Xperia S in the UK shortly after the Mobile World Congress.
The Sony Xperia S sports an HD (720 x 1280) display measuring 4.3 inches, a 12 MP camera on the back capable of 1080p video recording, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and will come out with Android Gingerbread 2.3 with an eventual ICS update at some point.
