If you have been holding out to pick up the Sony Xperia P in the UK then today is your lucky day. The device is now available to order online with Three and will in in stores tomorrow.

You can pick up the Xperia P for free with a £27 per month, two-year contract and also on pay-as-you-go for just £289.99 which is reasonable enough considering the hardware.

We recently reviewed the handset and it performed very well. The only real downside was the fact it is shipping running Gingerbread. But fear not, as the Xperia P will get an update to Android 4.0, most likely to be next month.

If you're after a decent, mid sized, well specced Android device then you could do a lot worse than the Xperia P. You can catch the full press release from Three after the break.

The Sony Xperia P is now available online at and from 17th July in all Three stores.


The sleek, aluminium-finished smartphone features a 4” reality display with WhiteMagic™ technology to deliver the most colourful viewing experience, even in bright sunlight. The phone also features a 1GHz dual-core processor for super-fast performance.

Helping people take the perfect picture, the Sony Xperia P features an 8 megapixel HD camera with Exmor R™ sensor and unique Fast Capture technology allowing the phone to go from sleep mode to ‘snap mode’ in just one second. The Sony Xperia™ P also makes it simple to share photos, music and videos on TVs, laptops or Sony PlayStations® using an HDMI cable or wirelessly by DLNA.

Sylvia Chind, Head of Devices at Three said, “The Sony Xperia P is an affordable and stylish smartphone, ideally suited for quick-fingered photographers. Running on Android, people can make the most of this great device by personalising their experience with countless photography apps like Instagram, downloadable through Google Play.”

The Sony Xperia P is available from £27 a month with no upfront cost on the Ultimate Internet 500 plan. Both the Essential Internet and Ultimate Internet plans offer a fear-free mobile internet experience, with a guarantee of no surprise out-of-bundle data charges.

The phone is also available on Pay As You Go for £289.99. All in One 15 costs £15 and gives 30-day access to all-you-can-eat data along with 300 any-network minutes and 3,000 texts. Or All in One 25 costs £25 and offers 500 minutes, 3,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data for a 30-day period.
