It was only yesterday we brought the news that Sony’s latest budget phone, the Xperia J, is heading to Carphone Warehouse in the UK in a matter of days. Now, another retailer in the country has announced that it too will be selling Sony’s colorful offering.
Clove has put up the product page for the Xperia J. This time, we don’t have to guess just how low Sony is willing to price the J for to grab the attention of those who are looking for an entry-level Android phone. As listed on its website, the black and white variant of the Xperia J can be had for £190. The price for the pink and gold flavor of the phone hasn’t been shared.
While Carphone Warehouse said that they will have stocks of the Xperia J on September 5, Clove will only start stocking the phone on October 29. We’re not sure if this is a typo or whether the former has some kind of exclusivity deal with Sony. It just strikes us odd that the phone’s availability on the two retailers differ by two months. For the J’s sake, we hope the phone will come much sooner than end of October.
We’ll be paying attention to Carphone for any sign of the Xperia J. In the meantime, you may be interested to learn of the phone’s specs once again.
