Sony Xperia T gets an exclusive James Bond version
17 Sep 2012
Exclusive content and a free game from O2
The mention of a 'James Bond phone' immediately conjures up something suave and stylish, possibly throwing in some devilish weapon or a nifty tool to open impenetrable doors too. The James Bond version of the Sony Xperia T isn't likely to live up to such expectations.
But this is the official Bond version of the Xperia T, which comes with its own exclusive content via the O2 network, but sadly doesn't come with a special handset design. Would it have been that difficult to stick a Bond logo on the back? Obviously it was, which is a shame.
Instead, you'll get a handset that is preloaded with Skyfall content, including the 007 ringtone, themes, screensavers and Skyfall images geo-tagged to the film's locations. It also has exclusive James Bond packaging, which is nice, but it's not something you can show off when you are out and about. As a final sweetener, you'll get a copy of the 007 Legends game thrown in for free.
The phone itself remains unchanged technically, which means a set of features headed up by a 4.6-inch screen powered by the Mobile BRAVIA engine, a 13-megapixel camera with ‘Sleep-to-snap’ feature to take a photo quickly plus 1080p video recording, along with NFC connectivity and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
O2 has the phone down for a September launch, which ties in with what we heard about a launch right at the end of the month. Contact O2 for details of its pricing, which is unlikely to differ much from the standard version.
