Aldi – the number online shopping site in the world will be offering huge discounts on Sony smartphones, particularly the Xperia Pro and the Xperia U models on October 25, 2012 on all of its worldwide networks. Both phones have the Android 2.3 “Gingerbread” version OS from Google which is upgradable to the latest 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” version OS. While both models are equipped with the Bravia Reality Display it is the Xperia Pro that has the larger display at 3.7 inches (94 millimeters) with pixel ratio of 845 x 480. The Xperia U on the other hand only has a 3.5-inch (89 millimeters) display with pretty much the same resolution on it.
Another nice feature of the Sony Xperia Pro is the retractable QWERTY keypad that allows you to type in text or email messages without having to use the screen as oppose to fulltouch LCD screens from other brands. A lot of people get confused with the touchscreen technology and so they prefer a the actual keypad and besides they’ll get to see maps using their GPS more clearly on the 3.7-inch display. The main disadvantage of the Xperia Pro is its weight but it comes with the price of having a retractable QWERTY keypad too.
Both phones are built with a 512 MB RAM and dual core processors operating at 1 GHz. The Xperia U uses the STE-U8500 processor (dual core) while the Xperia Pro from Sony has the Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 at its central core. Clearly these smartphones are built like mini-computers!
They also have memory expansion slots of up to 32GB of micro SD-base capacity for which the system memory can tap into and work together as one. This will allow you to enhance your video viewing experience and snap photos in high quality format too!
Both the Sony Xperia U and Xperia Pro can be yours for only €179 ($232.8) but with that you’ll get an amazing network integration along with the tons of other features already previously mentioned. Like for instance you can connect your phone to any network via the WLAN module, because it can support standard GPRS/EDGE and UMTS connectivity. Data transfer is also fairly easy with the availability of a micro-USB port and both phones have Bluetooth connectivity too! You’ll also get a 2-year warranty for the amount you paid to purchase the phone plus other accessories included.
