IFA 2012 Sony ushered in a fresh range of smartphones at IFA this week, as well as its first Xperia tablet.

The Japanese firm's latest flagship smartie - the Xperia T - hits the UK market with product placement in the forthcoming Bond flick Skyfall.

The handset's supposed licence to thrill comes through a Qualcomm S4-Plus 1.5GHz dual-core processor, powering an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich build. An update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been promised following launch, though.

The Sony Xperia T boasts a 4.6in 720p display and handles 1080p video recording through its 13Mp rear-facing camera. It'll produce 720p video through a front-facing snapper as well.

Released on the 17th perhaps?

There's also NFC and DLNA capabilities, MHL connectivity and PlayStation certification for access to Sony's growing range of smartphone games.

The second handset announced is the Xperia J, which features a 4in screen with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. It too runs an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich build, but instead finds itself powered by an older Qualcomm S1 chip, clocked at 1GHz.

Other features include a 5Mp camera, DLNA support and advanced social media integration. You can tell which group this one's aimed at, then.

Sony Xperia Android tablet

Last but certainly not least is Sony's latest slate, the Xperia Tablet S, which packs an aluminium body and splash-proof design. As previously rumoured, the tablet runs a Tegra 3 processor over an Android 4.0 build.

The slab comes in either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB versions, features 8Mp rear-facing and 1Mp front-facing cameras, and packs a 6000mAh battery for up to 12 hours use.

Both the Xperia T and the Xperia Tablet S will launch next month in the UK, while the Xperia J should hit shelves sometime in Q4 2012. Prices have yet to be revealed. ®
