We get a lot of talk about flagship devices. It’s easy enough to lust after the Galaxy Note 3 or the LG G2, but these devices can get really expensive without a carrier subsidy. What if you want just want a decently-spec’d smartphone, off contract, for an affordable price? Sony’s got you covered there too.

It looks like the Sony Xperia M is on its way to Canada by way of Bell and Virgin Mobile, getting listed for a very reasonable $199.95. That’s the outright price, so you’re not locked down to a contract. Not surprisingly, though, the entry-level Android 4.1 Jelly Bean smartphone is going to come with correspondingly entry-level features and specs.

The display isn’t one of these five-inch 1080p numbers. Instead, it’s just a four-inch 854 x 480 touchscreen. There’s a 1GHz dual-core processor under the hood, along with 1GB of RAM, a 5MP camera with 720p video, and 1700mAh battery. Aside from the 4G LTE support, this spec sheet reads like something from 2011, but it is only two hundred bucks. You should be able to find it starting November 7 at the Bell or Virgin store of your choice.

Or, you know, you could win a Sony Xperia SP for free in our contest instead. Totally up to you.
