    Previously we got wind of a new Sony Xperia phone that would be the official James Bond phone coming out in Europe. At that time, there was no indication that the phone would come to the United States. Of course, Bond is an international traveler, so you had to surmise that he would likely come to the U.S. too, right? If you thought so, then you can give yourself a gold star. AT&T and Sony just officially unveiled the new "James Bond Smartphone", and it will be the Xperia XL. The phone will actually be featured in the new James Bond film, Skyfall. The specs are pretty svelte, just like the character. Here's a spec breakdown followed by the official press release.
    • 4.6-inch 720p HD display
    • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor
    • 13-megapixel rear camera capable of recording full 1080p video
    • NFC, MHL, 4G LTE
    • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (likely upgradeable to Jelly Bean fairly quickly)

    Hope Apple doesn't notice it's got rounded corners........... Looks more iPhone-ish than the Samsung models Apple had such a fit about, IMHO.

    I'm pretty sure that like the other new Xperias its back is noticeably beveled, as well as having the green and silver Sony button to avoid any possible confusion, since apparently Apple thinks iPhone owners are idiots who can't tell one device from another when making a purchase =p Litigation: the only way to protect the dumb.

    that is a good looking phone. And a 13MP Sony camera will likely be quite impressive
