Together with the flagship Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact, Sony has just announced the new Xperia E3 at IFA 2014. It aims to sell the Xperia E3 with an affordable price tag, but without compromised any necessary features you will need in a smartphone.
We have seen details on the Xperia E Dual for the UK and Germany, however as of today we have word of availability for the US market. In short, Sony has begun accepting pre-orders for the handset. The device is available unlocked and contract free and assuming the estimated shipping date holds true -- it will begin shipping sooner rather than later.
Sony originally announced the Xperia E smartphone back in December. At the time Sony was touting this handset as being affordable, however they were not quite as forthcoming in terms of a price or a release date. Anyway, while we have yet to learn of a release date, the handset has recently been granted approval from the FCC.
Sony announced the Xperia E a bit earlier in the month and while they were pretty forthcoming in terms of specs, they left off some of the key details -- the pricing and the release date. Since then we saw a bit of pricing for the Xperia E in Germany, however the release date has remained a mystery. But on that note, it looks like the Carphone Warehouse has narrowed down the release timeframe to one month.
