Deal of the week: Sony Xperia range for $499 or below

A smartphone for $499 is somewhat unbelievable, especially one that is not a grey import but bought directly from a manufacturer run store. That’s right, I was amazed to pop into my local Sony Centre the other day to see the Sony Xperia S for $499, with the Xperia P and Xperia U at even lower prices.

Why the Xperia range?
Sony in my opinion still provides some of the most aesthetically pleasing devices from a hardware perspective. The custom user interface experience still has a while to go but just like Samsung’s TouchWiz, there are so many custom launchers the stock UI experience hardly matters.

The other huge plus is Sony is committed to letting you do whatever you like with your phone, you can install whatever customer operating system you like and they encourage it.

Visit a local Sony Centre and check them out on display.
