The Sony Xperia S may not be the newest kid on the block, but Sony’s still behind it 100%. They’ve showed their commitment by announcing a nice new color for the device: Dark Silver. It’s a fancy way of saying “black/carbon”, and despite the need to use fancy color names it does look very nice. The bottom bar, and the back and sides of the device all boast the new color. The only thing I can’t get over is that ugly Xperia logo on the back. It sticks out like a sore thumb in a cast. But it’s there, and if you don’t mind it then you can look forward to the new colorway in the next few weeks. [Sony]
