T3 Colours
Sony has just announced a new model in their Xperia lineup – the Xperia T3 – announcing it with the line ‘Stand out from the crowd with the stylish and slim Xperia T3 smartphone from Sony’. The phone is indeed quite thin, measuring in at just 7mm thin, while also incorporating a 4G LTE Radio and 5.3″ display.

The phone will be available in select markets, in the usual Sony Xperia colour scheme of Black, White and Purple and Sony has worked hard on the T3 to bukild the phone out of premium materials, built on a stainless steel frame. But it’s not just looks that the T3 offers, Sony wants the T3 to offer a premium experience with, it offers a decent range of hardware to power it along.

    Looks nice but pretty average specs. Would sell plenty if it were cheap enough
