Sony Ericsson has been struck down by a lot of delayed launches this year, but that hasn’t stopped them from pushing out the Xperia Arc to Optus and Vodafone; Xperia Play to Telstra, Virgin and Optus; and now the Xperia Neo is headed to Telstra as well, on the 26th of this month for $0 on their $59 Freedom Connect Plan. I had a play around with the Neo a month or two ago and can best describe it as the Arc cross with the Play. It’s thinner and smaller than the Play, like that Arc, however it has the same shape as the Play.
It has a 3.7-inch (480×854) Bravia display, 1GHz Qualcomm CPU, 8MP Camera that shoots 720p Video and runs Android 2.3.3 — which might not support Video Calling via Gtalk, but will bring you HD Voice through Telstra and Video Calling via Skype. Matt will soon have a Neo in his hands to review for you guys as well. Check out a video preview of the Xperia Neo after the break.
