We’ve received some more news regarding the rumoured Sony Xperia S launch on Optus in mid-April: pricing. Our source says that the phone will be available for $0 on Optus’ $49 cap. The cap includes 1.5GB data, $550 of included credit and unlimited social networking on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare (and more), which is (almost) enough to get the most out of your brand new Xperia S.

Our review of Sony’s first Xperia device should be posted in the next week and a bit, so keep an eye out for that. Is anyone interested in the Xperia S on Optus? It’s shaping up to be a nice device given its reasonable pricing.

    A few days ago i went past the Optus Shop in Box Hill, Melbourne and they had the Xperia S on display but the tag under it said said Arc $49. They had no stock of the phone but amusing it will be here very soon.
