An interesting email just dropped into my inbox from British independent phone retailer Phones4U. On top of claiming the exclusive rights to sell the white Sony Xperia S -- on contract at least -- they have now decided to up the ante a little to pre-order customers. The first 250 people to pre-order themselves a shiny new Xperia S will receive a free, Android powered, Sony Smartwatch, valued at £99.
The Smartwatch is pretty much the successor to the Sony Ericsson LiveView.Connecting to your phone via Bluetooth, it can run apps, keep you upto date with your Twitter, Facebook, Email, and perhaps we shouldn't forget -- it can also display the time in traditional watch fashion. There is a range of different coloured wristbands available ranging from black through to pink.
As with the LiveView, the Smartwatch won't everyones cup of tea. But if you already thought about getting an Xperia S at launch, it might be worth pre-ordering one here. After all, we all like free stuff, right? Expected delivery date is March 13.
Hit the source link to find the order page, and there's a Smartwatch video for your viewing pleasure after the break.
