Sony Xperia L

The Sony Xperia L is now available in the UK from retailer Clove, with shipping set to start in a couple of days.

Clove has the device listed on its website, both in black and white SIM-free versions, at a price of £228.00 including VAT (or £190.00 not including it). Deliveries are set to start on May 15, which is when the retailer says that the first stock is expected.

If you prefer to get it from, you should know that you’ll pay £249.99 for it and you can only pre-order it at the moment, with the listed release date being May 30.

You may remember that the device, which was officially announced in March, had been pr0mised to UK customers by Carphone Warehouse in April. But for some reason, it doesn’t show up on the retailer’s website right now.

While the Sony Xperia L may not be a top smartphone, it still offers some interesting features for its price. It has a 4.3-inch FWVGA display and a 1GHz dual-core CPU, coupled with 1GB of RAM memory and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Internal memory is 8GB, but it’s expandable using the microSD slot. Probably the best thing about it, the device has an 8-megapixel camera with HDR mode and a dedicated button for it.
