Vodafone UK sends word that it's launching the social-focused Sony Xperia Miro on Pay As You Go and contract plans. The 3.5-inch Xperia Miro, announced a few months back, combines an 800MHz CPU with 512MB of RAM and a 5-megapixel rear camera. It's unquestionably an entry-level phone, and Vodafone's pricing it as such -- it'll set you back just £130 on PAYG, and it's available for free on contracts starting at a frugal £13 per month.
It's not going to blow you away with awesome, bleeding-edge specs, but the Xperia Miro is a reasonable upgrade over the bog-standard Xperia Tipo, and that 5MP camera in particular is probably worth the extra cash. It also comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, so you'll be rocking a relatively modern version of the OS. Right now it looks like Voda's only offering the black Xperia Miro, so you'll have to hold out for another network (or SIM-free deal) if you want one of the other colors shown above.

I don't normally look at entry level phones, but this has a touch of class.
Is this better than the HTC Desire C, as my friend is after a cheap android payg phone with ICS?
