It's been an epic wait for the Sony Xperia TX, first rumored back in January under the codename "Hayabusa." Today we finally saw Sony's late 2012 flagship in the flesh, and it's brought in a whole heap of welcome changes. First up is ICS out of the box, complete with on-screen buttons to satisfy Android purists. There's also a 13MP BSI rear camera, promising improvements over the 12MP sensor in the Xperia S, and a 4.6-inch 720p HD LCD display, which looks as good as any smartphone screen we've seen. There's a lot to dig into in the latest Sony flagship, and we've kicked things off with a quick hands-on preview video. We'll have more from the TX, and the other new members of the Xperia family, from IFA in Berlin later this week.
