Sony softens its design with the Xperia GX smartphone
Sony today have launched two handsets aimed at the Japanese market, and whetted the apatite of everyone else. The Xperia SX and GX handsets are designed for the 4G LTE networks which are only at the trial stage in the UK, but what I think is most interesting is the design of the GX especially. The edges have been softened significantly in a way that make the phone itself much more appealing. Unfortunately the most recent Sony phones have been very angular and monolithic, certainly a far cry from the likes of the HTC One series and the Galaxy S III's 'pebble' ethos.
The Xperia GX is similar to the Xperia Ion with the exception of a larger 13 mega pixel camera and the presence on Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. Other specs include a tasty 4.6 inch screen, 1.5GHz dual core processor, full HD video capture and 16GB of internal flash storage. While the Ion is still mooted to be released in the next few months for the UK (Q2 2012 at last mention), I for one would prefer Sony to pull the plug on it and give the European market the GX instead. It is just all round a more attractive phone, and far more likely to compete with the HTC One S/X than the Ion could.

The GX will be available in black or white from launch, with no daft interchangeable end caps.
