The Sony Xperia tipo dual is now on sale in a number of different markets around the world including Asia (Singapore) and in parts of Europe (Czech Republic). The phone is identical to the budget Xperia tipo but offers dual-sim capability. We’ve got some unboxing pictures of the device below which shows that it comes with a 1500mAh battery (BA700), USB cable, stereo headset and documentation.
The back of the handset appears to be similar to the Xperia active both in terms of shape and texture. Sony provides settings for the dual-SIM which allows you to turn either SIM on or off, or to figure out which to use the data from. It is a low-end handset therefore it doesn’t have a digital compass, light sensor, camera flash and shutter key. Still, for the low price, inclusion of Android 4.0.4 ICS out of the box and dual-SIM capability it will be an attractive proposition for some.
