Sony gives the public the ability to fast forward launch of new phone

Sony has launched a countdown on its Facebook page to the launch of a new Xperia-branded smartphone. What's a little different in this case is that the countdown is interactive, with visitors to the page getting the chance to fast forward the date so the phone will be unveiled before its originally-planned debut on June 22. On its devoted blog, Sony revealed that 2,102 users have clicked the button, which sped up the release date by 11 hours and 42 minutes, so the handset will launch at least one day earlier.

The promotion also gives users the chance to win one of the unknown handsets, though they will need to provide an e-mail address and sign up for other promotions.

What the phone will turn out to be can only be guessed at currently, though it may turn out to be the Xperia LT29i Hayabusa leaked in a roadmap and another report back in April. The device is expected to be the new flagship in the range, getting a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and 4.55-inch HD Reality display. It is said to be just 7mm thick and house a 2,200mAh battery.
