The device is the first from Sony after its breakup (buyout) with Ericsson, and the company hopes to become a player again in the market where it has almost disappeared.
Sony's Xperia P will have a 4-inch display, a unibody aluminum form factor and be the first to use Sony's "White Magic" display technology for better visibility in sunny conditions.
The smartphone has a dual-core 1GHz processor, will run Gingerbread 2.3.7 out of the box (update to ICS 4.0 coming in the Q2), and have an 8MP camera with 1080p video support.
Sony has also pre-installed photo, video and music player apps, as well as integrating the Sony Entertainment Network. NFC is also supported, and will be work with "Xperia Smart Tags" to created macros for your device.
There was no word on pricing or carriers.
