The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is now available in the United States, though don’t go heading to your nearest wireless carrier to find the Android smartphone. The handset is not available direct from any service provider, but is rather being sold via online retailers as an unlocked device. Priced at $424.99, you’ll want to take a hard look at the Xperia Ray’s 1GHz processor, 3.3-inch reality display, and 8.1MP camera before deciding if this is the handset for you. Chances are you will find something better on a subsidized deal direct from any number of carriers, but if the idea of signing into a long-term contract is just a little out of your comfort zone you can find the Xperia Ray at NewEgg (where it is on sale for only $379.99) and other online outlets.
