The recently announced Sony Xperia go Android smartphone is now available on pre-order on popular online retailer Flipkart. The website has listed the smartphone at a price tag of INR 18,999 with expected shipping date of July third week.
Xperia go features Android 2.3 (upgradable to ICS), 1GHz dual core processor, 5MP camera, 3.5-inch display and 512MB of RAM. It is more like a younger cousin of Xperia sola, which comes with a similar form factor and a bigger 3.7-nch display.
The smartphone also comes with 8GB of internal storage, FM Radio and Wi-Fi connectivity. Apart from the outdated OS on-board, it is pretty decent phone on-paper.
With Xperia go on pre-order, we can also expect the acro S to land soon in the country, as both the smartphones were announced at the same time.
Sony is struggling big time in the Indian market and it needs a huge marketing push with some decently priced devices to help it gain some market share.
