Sony Xperia U can be ordered from Fido in Canada from $30 on a two-year plan

Sony's Xperia U Android smartphone will soon be available in Canada at provider Fido. The 1GHz, dual-core handset uses transparent elements that illuminate in different colors depending on what color theme a user selects. It can also match the color of photos viewed in the gallery or the cover art of music tracks.

More color options is offered by interchangeable end caps, with a black and pink one included. There is also a five-megapixel camera out back that's capable of capturing HD video, along with a VGA front-facing camera. Users interface through the 3.5-inch touchscreen. Android 2.3 is preloaded onto the device.

The phone includes a free, 30-day trial to Sony Music Unlimited. The company's Video Unlimited service is also available to access from the Xperia U. The handset is DLNA compatible, meaning users can share media on the big screen wirelessly through a supported device.

The Xperia U is said to cost $30 when paired with some voice and data plans on a two-year contract, though the product page doesn't yet reflect that.
