The Sony Xperia miro (ST23i) is due to go on sale imminently in Europe, UK retailers are expecting stock of the sub-£200 handset in the next week or so. However, given the price, don’t go expecting too much in the box. The unboxing video below (in Italian) shows minimal accessories including a USB cable and charger, BA700 (1500mAh) battery and documentation. That’s it, you don’t even get a headset in the box.
The Xperia miro is the bigger brother to the Xperia tipo sporting a higher display size (3.5-inch versus 3.2-inch for the tipo) and better camera (5MP camera versus 3.2MP for the tipo). The Sony Xperia miro has a 800MHz MSM7225A chipset, 3.5-inch (320 x 480) display, 5MP camera, 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal memory (2.2GB user accessible) and microSD memory card support. It also has a funky notification light at the bottom of the handset and will launch with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. See the unboxing video below.
