Sony’s coming to market with yet another set of handsets for the mid-range market. The Japanese company has announced the Sony Xperia SP and Sony Xperia L, neither of which are meant to send big ripples in the smartphone pond but should be nice options for those not looking to spend much.
Starting with the Xperia SP, this device has a 4.6 inch HD Reality Display (720p) with Bravia Engine 2 display technology.
