Sony Ericsson Xperia ray in US carrier-free

Sony late Friday brought the Xperia ray to the US without waiting. The Android 2.3 smartphone is officially available in the country for $425 through stores like Newegg, but without being locked into a any carrier. It carries AT&T-native 3G and should work in Canada as well; T-Mobile owners can use it if they don't mind losing 3G.

Unofficially, NewEgg and others are selling the Xperia ray for as little as 380, making i one of the least expensive fully modern phones on the market.

The Xperia ray has the same 1GHz Snapdragon, low light friendly 8.1-megapixel camera, and the custom Mediascape and Timescape interfaces Sony Ericsson brings. Its main advantage is size: having a 3.2-inch display but the sam 480x854 resolution as larger phones like the Arc both creates a much denser display as well as a lower cost device.

No carriers in North America have committed to the deal, although the AT&T and Canadian 3G support hints a debut might be forthcoming.
