One of Sony Ericsson’s newest phones, the Xperia Ray, may be set to come out this August if UK retailer Carphone Warehouse is to be believed. They’ve allowed customers to register to be notified about any pricing and availability information and have mentioned that the expected ship date is some time within August. Take this with a grain of salt, of course, as these preliminary dates often change from month to month. In any case, this will be a summer device (sun “rays”, get it?) and you should be able to get your hands on it before the leaves begin to fall off the trees. [via SoMobile, Thanks Carly!]
