Sony Xperia E1
Optus has today announced that they’ve added the Sony Xperia E1 to their pre-paid range. The 3G only handset will be sold online and in-store for $149.

It’s a pretty decent deal for a low end phone, but Optus is going the extra mile. As a bonus for early adopters, the phone is being paired with a Soccer World Cup promotion which means that customers will receive an official Match Ball Replica valued at $30.

Sony Xperia E1 Specs :

  • 4” 800×480 WVGA resolution display
  • 1.2GHz Dual Core Processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage (2GB available to the user) with microSD Card slot (up to 32GB)
  • 3MP Rear Facing Camera
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth V4.0, GPS, FM Radio
  • 3G Network: 900 / 2100 MHz
  • Android™ 4.3 (Jelly Bean MR2)
  • 1700mAh Battery
  • 118×62.4x12mm @ 120grams

The Xperia E1 is music focused which includes a dedicated Walkman button. This paired with the integrated speaker which offers deeper, richer bass that is capable of playing up to 100dB and the ClearAudio+ sound experience is a winner but also comes with the ability to change tracks easily on the go with ‘Shake control’.

You can head on over to the Optus website to check out the phone and place your order, or of course head in-store to check it out.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Why even release a phone this low end if it’s not going to run Kit Kat…
