Xperia T coming to Bell, Rogers, and other Canadian carriers this November
Sony's Xperia T, which is also being called the Bond phone on account of its upcoming cameo in the Skyfall blockbuster flick, will arrive this November at various Canadian wireless providers, Sony announced on Wednesday. While a specific date hasn't been nailed down, Bell, Mobilicity, MTS, Rogers, and Videotron will begin carrying the phone in November. Pricing hasn't been revealed, but the associated contracts, as applicable will no doubt last three years and require data plans.
To recap, the handset sports a 4.6-inch display with 1,280x720 resolution and driven by Sony's Mobile BRAVIA engine and is powered by a dual-core, 1.5GHz processor. It will ship with Android 4.0 but can be upgraded for Android 4.1 soon after launch. Some of the providers with the necessary networks will offer LTE variants, while other will hawk HSPA+ versions. A 13-megapixel front-facing camera is built-in, and an NFC radio is present as well.
It will pay homage to the 007 film with exclusive content preloaded, including behind the scenes footage, interviews, clips, wallpapers, ring tones, and more.
