21 May 2012

The Sony Xperia U™ is now available online at www.three.co.uk and from tomorrow (22nd May 2012) in all Three stores.

With an illuminating strip at the base of the phone which changes colour to match the dominant colour in photos and music album covers, this unique phone is great for people who want to stand out from the crowd. The phone also comes with customisable caps that slot on to the bottom of the phone and add an extra level of personalisation.

The Sony Xperia U™’s 3.5” display with Sony’s Mobile BRAVIA™ Engine technology ensures that photos, apps, web pages and games are always crystal clear. The five megapixel camera with Exmoor R™ sensor technology allows people to take perfect pictures in low light. The device also features a fast 1.5 second image capture too, so fast fingered photographers don’t have to worry about missing the perfect shot.
