Since Sony's social-focused Xperia Miro was announced almost two months ago it's remained pretty elusive. However, today it looks like a UK release may be close at hand, with the emergence of a holding page for the phone over at independent retailer the Carphone Warehouse.
Alongside the usual specs and pre-registration stuff, the page points to a tentative release date later this month -- that'd give the phone some time to gain traction before Sony shows off its new hotness at IFA in a few weeks. There's no pricing or network info just yet, but pre-order pages at other retailers suggest it'll go for between £180 and £210 off-contract.
Announced after a Facebook promotion earlier this year, the Xperia Miro sports Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a 3.5-inch screen with a 5MP camera and an 800MHz CPU running the show. Design-wise, it's as if someone took a rolling pin to the Xperia Tipo -- the Miro sports the same design in a thinner chassis, spread over a larger surface area.
With phones like the Xperia Tipo and Miro, Sony certainly has all its bases covered at the low end. We'll be hoping for more bleeding-edge high-end stuff at the company's Aug. 29 IFA press conference.
