Sony Ericsson XPERIA Ray

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Ray is an excellent smartphone wrapped in a compact and light frame, a refreshing change from the norm. Provided you can live with its cramped screen when typing on the touchscreen keyboard, the XPERIA Ray offers most of the features of its larger counterpart including a vibrant display, an excellent camera and intuitive software.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
