    AT&T & Sony to Launch Official "James Bond Smartphone" the Xperia TL

    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)

    Featured in Upcoming James Bond Film Skyfall, Comes Preloaded with Exclusive Content from the Movie

    DALLAS, Oct. 1, 2012 – AT&T* today announced plans to offer Xperia TL, the latest Sony smartphone bringing Sony’s best HD experiences, easy connectivity with ‘One-touch’ sharing enabled by NFC (Near Field Communications) and award-winning** arc design. This 4G LTE smartphone takes connected entertainment to the next level with new Sony media applications. As the official James Bond smartphone, it comes preloaded with exclusive content from the upcoming movie Skyfall.

    Photo enthusiasts will delight in the impressive images taken with Xperia TL’s 13-megapixel primary camera that brings even the smallest of details to life. This high resolution camera captures quality images swiftly with its quick launch feature, going from standby mode (sleep) to first shot in just 1.5 seconds,1 making sure life’s unexpected moments are not missed. Plus, both the rear and front-facing cameras deliver HD recording capabilities for vivid video capture on the go.

    Xperia TL gives you the ultimate in HD with a superb 4.6-inch HD display (1080 x 720), powered by the Mobile BRAVIA® Engine for razor sharp clarity and brilliance. The viewing experience on Xperia TL is accentuated by a stylish, slim form factor that emphasizes the display. For those looking to take their content from their smartphone screen to the TV screen, Xperia TL connects through MHL or wirelessly through DLNA.

    To make enjoying content across devices even easier, Xperia TL supports ‘One-touch’ connectivity through NFC. Now, you can conveniently and instantaneously enjoy your music and photos across an array of NFC enabled devices by simply touching one to another to establish a wireless connection without a cumbersome pairing process. To get started with experiencing NFC, Xperia TL comes with one Xperia SmartTag in box. Using near field communication technology, SmartTags let you store device preferences for a variety of locations and situations – like opening and controlling volume on the music player if you head out for a run, turning on GPS and Bluetooth in the car or turning on your alarm and silencing your ringer at night.

    Xperia TL includes three preloaded Sony media applications, Walkman, Movies, and Album, introducing a consistent user interface across Sony devices. Album will be especially appealing to photo takers with features such as:
    • Geo-mapping in satellite and traditional map views
    • More than 25 editing options
    • Improved layout of photo and video folders, both in device and online
    • Featured in the upcoming James Bond cinema release Skyfall, Xperia TL will be used in the film by 007 himself. As the official Bond phone, it will come preloaded with exclusive Bond content inclusive of behind the scenes footage, interviews, clips, wallpapers, ring tones, and more.
    • AT&T customers have access to the nation’s largest 4G network***, covering 275 million people. AT&T has two 4G networks that work together for customers, LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. That means AT&T customers are able to enjoy a widespread, ultra-fast and consistent 4G experience on their compatible device as they move in and out of LTE areas. With other carriers, when you travel outside of their LTE coverage area, you may be on a much slower 3G network.
