Sony is really trying to make a go of this Xperia thing. Overall, we've been generally impressed with Sony's high-end-ish smartphone line. As the Xperia name has taken hold, the company has decided to further expand (ore perhaps dilute) the brand with a trio of new midrange pivots.

First up: The dual-SIM Xperia E1 is a 4-inch display'd handset that carries some respectably middling specs including a 800 x 480 display, 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage.

The 4-inch Xperia E1. No details regarding availability or price have been
announced, but it should be less than $240 unsubsidized.

The company is pushing the E1 primarily as a media consumption device, with the promise to deliver 100 decibles of sound (it should be noted that should this device be pushed in European markets, the EU limits devices to 85 decibels) and a 30-day trial of Sony's unremarkably-named music streaming service, Music Unlimited.
