Pick up your phone, yes that one. The one that’s never more than an arm’s reach from you at all times. The one that has probably been in the bathroom with you more times than the toilet roll has. Yes, that one.
Of course, if you’re already reading this on your smartphone then I do apologise for being an idiot by choosing this intro, but I digress.
How does your smartphone feel? And no, I don’t mean this in a metaphorical out-of-body-experience sense, I mean this in a literal sense. We spend every waking moment (some sleeping) of our lives holding onto a little brick that probably weighs no more than a really heavy spoon at a posh restaurant, but most of us put little to no thought into how a device feels in the hand when deciding on a purchase. It’s all about specs and that’s rather unfortunate.

Just days away to MWC 2012, the purported Xperia U seen as Xperia S‘s baby sibling has appeared again. This time the device was taken side by side with the Xperia S which gives a better size comparison between the two.
To recap, the ST25i which is said to be released as the Xperia U is expected to run on a dual-core 1GHz processor with a smaller 3.5″ display at 854×480 resolution. Unlike the Xperia S, the Xperia U comes with a removable battery rated at 1,290mAh. At the back, it comes with a 5MP camera with assisted LED flash.
While it maintains the same iconic transparent belt, there are some minor difference between the 2. The power button for the ST25i is placed on the left side while the USB port is exposed on the left.
Head after the break for more comparison shots.
Sony has started sending out invitations for a press conference where the company is expected to reveal a new range of devices. The press conference is scheduled for one day ahead of the Mobile World Congress that’s happening later this month.
Not much information is revealed in the invitation but the visual with the three personalities does suggest that we can expect three new phones to be revealed. This is in line with the three Sony devices – the LT22i Nypon (Xperia P), the MT27i Pepper and the ST25i Kumquat (Xperia U) – you’ve probably already seen in numerous leaked pictures all over the web. We’re expecting more info to be revealed as we move closer to the date, stay tuned.
