Xperia P and U pegged for early May launch in the UK

Hot on the heels of the Xperia S come Sony's mid-range and entry-level offerings, the Xperia P and Xperia U. We got to see both devices at the announcement event at Mobile World Congress a couple of months back, and if you're interested in picking either up, you should only have another 2-3 weeks left to wait.

UK retailer Clove Technology now lists both upcoming Xperia phones for pre-order, with an expected release date during the week commencing May 7. The Xperia P is available in black and silver, and will set you back £330 off-contract, the Xperia U comes in black and white, and sells for £204.

Pre-order pricing and release dates are always subject to change, but Clove has a proven track record when it comes to this sort of thing. And given the closeness of the purported release dates, we're inclined to believe them in this instance.

  • This picture makes that bottom bezel look ginormous!
  • Thats a beautiful phone. Something you would never see on Sprint.
  • Nice phone, but I have ages till my contract ends nearer the end of this year, and if I went with Sony (which is very likely unless Samsung pull something good with SGS3 at a non extortionate price by my upgrade time) then I'd prefer the Sony Xperia Ion, also depending on how mad they go with contract price.
