Sony says that the miro has a powerful battery that can push out 24-hours of usage time. Handsets will be available in black, black/pink, white and white/gold.
The second handset that Sony is due to release is the Xperia tipo dual, which offers an easy to use smartphone experience that is targeted towards customers who purchase their first smartphone.

Some might seek an integrated social media and seamless music experience that is offered by Xperia miro while those migrating from a feature phone and looking for smartphone benefits will find an ideal match in the Xperia tipo dual."
