Sony introduces the Xperia M and M dual smartphones with NFC
Sony has just introduced the newest addition to their growing 2013 Xperia line of smartphones. The Xperia M is the new budget oriented smartphone with a 4-inch display and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS.
Sony continues to expand its 2013 Xperia range with their newest addition, the Xperia M. Targeted at those strictly on a budget, the Xperia M aims to provide a premium Sony experience on their 4-inch mid-ranger positioned below their (currently cheapest) Xperia L.
Sony Xperia M (and M dual) Specifications:

The Xperia M packs a specification set which is very close to that of the Xperia L. The few downgrades include the 5 MP Exmor RS camera (down from 8 MP), 4 GB of internal storage and a smaller display (4-inch in place of 4.3-inch). Sony is marketing the new Xperia M as the one-touch smartphone, heavily emphasizing on the inclusion of NFC in their new mid-range wonder.
Expect to see the Xperia M hit markets some time in Q3 2013 and for a very affordable price tag, between $250-$300 (unlocked). The Xperia M will be available in single SIM and dual-SIM variants and in four flavors, Black, White, Purple and Yellow.
