After delays resulting from the recent earthquakes and tsunami in Japan, Sony Ericsson's Xperia Neo is finally starting to see widespread availability, as the handset launches in the UK today. We've been playing around with the Neo for just under a week now -- in terms of internal hardware and software it's pretty much identical to its bigger brother, the 4.2-inch Xperia Arc. There's a larger battery, as well as a front-facing camera, but besides that it's the same phone packed into a smaller (if slightly bulkier) 3.7-inch chassis. However, the Neo is a little more affordable than the Arc, with prices on launch day ranging from £342 at Clove to £390 at Amazon UK.
We'll have a full review of the Xperia Neo written up in the next week or so. In the meantime, let us know in the comments if you're thinking of picking one of these up.
