Android phones pack 800MHz Snapdragon processors
Sony will be bringing its Xperia tipo and tipo dual handsets to US shores as unlocked models. The two Android 4.0 handsets will connect to AT&T and T-Mobile's networks, and they will work with 2100MHz carriers internationally.
Both models feature a 3.2-inch touchscreen, a 3.2MP rear-facing camera, and 2.5GB of internal storage. Inside, the tipo and tipo dual pack an 800MHz Snapdragon processor. The tipo dual is a dual-SIM phone, allowing users to keep separate lines on one device.
The two handsets will be available at contract-free prices of $180 for the tipo and $190 for the tipo dual.
