Sony Ericsson Australia confirmed today via their Facebook presence that the Xperia Neo will be headed to our largest wireless carrier, Telstra, exclusively in the first half of this year. The launch date is obviously quite vague and pricing is non-existent, but we’re thinking Telstra will hike up the pricing as they did with the Xperia X10 when it launched early last year, o’ how time flies when you’re having fun.
The Xperia Neo can be best described as ‘the Xperia X10, done right’, we’re really hoping this is the case as this is a promising looking device. Much better than some of the stuff HTC threw together at MWC. The Xperia Neo is powered by a 1GHz (single core) Snapdragon CPU, an 8MP camera w/ 720p video as well as the 3.7″ (480×854) Bravia-engine display and of course running Android 2.3, something your Xperia X10 will never do.
