Sony Xperia T3 Coming to Canada Dylan Duarte July 30, 2014 Press Release Let me tell you about the T3. No, not the third Terminator movie that was a dull shadow of its predecessor, but the Sony Xperia T3, the phone that combines form and function with fashion. Coming to Canada soon, this ultra-slim Android smartphone is perfect for the consumer on a budget, offering style and functionality at an affordable price. It’s built with premium materials, so it probably won’t explode into pieces just by getting looked at. It only weighs 148 grams, so it’s not going to weigh your shorts down. What’s even more impressive is that it still manages to sport a 5.3″ HD display despite its small weight. The Xperia T3 comes equipped with an 8MP Cyber-shot camera that features Exmor RS, HDR, and SteadyShot for all you amateur photographers out there. The T3 comes with a variety of camera apps like AR Effect, Creative Effects, and Timeshift Burst. That last one sounds like a videogame. T3 users will also get a free trial of Music Unlimited services. The Sony Xperia T3’s key features include the aforementioned 5.3-inch HD TRILUMINOS display for mobile with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, LTE support, Quad-core 1.4 GHz processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB flash memory, a large 2500 mAh battery with Battery STAMINA mode, and Android 4.4 (Kit Kat). The phone will be available in Canada in August 2014 and will be sold at Bell, Virgin Mobile, SaskTel, and Sony stors and The Source locations. It doesn’t seem like Sony has released a price just yet, but we expect it to be comparable to the Xperia M2 from Rogers and Fido. Scroll down for the press release.
