Xperia Ray Available Exlusivley To Telus Customers On November 2

I got a message from my “new best friends at Sony” who let me know that the Xperia Ray which I’ve previously written about is going to hit the streets on November 2nd via Telus. A few new details about this smartphone have appeared:

  • Camera enhancements –Sony’s 3D Sweep Panorama lets you capture the full picture in vivid quality. Connect your Xperia ray to your 3D TV and wow your friends with your sensational 3D images.
  • Sony Entertainment Network– Tap into the Sony Entertainment Network with Video Unlimited and instantly access thousands of movie titles directly on your phone.
  • Facebook inside Xperia– See, share, like and comment on tracks, and photos straight from your music player or library. This unique to Sony Ericsson application also includes integrated contacts and photo albums to tag, comment and see which photos your friends like without having to open another app.
  • View phone content on your TV–Connect your Xperia ray and your DLNA-enabled TV to the same wireless network and view your videos, photos or slide shows directly on your television.
  • Gesture input– Swipe the words you want and reply to your messages faster. Start on the first letter of the word then drag your finger to the next letters without taking if off the keyboard.
  • Screen Capture–Push the power off button then press “screen capture” to share your screen via text or on your favorite social networking site.
  • Android 2.3– Giving you access to the more than 200,000 applications available on the Android Marketplace.

I’m planning to get a look at the phone on the evening of the 2nd and I hope to be posting my impressions later that night. On paper this looks like it’s a nice phone. We’ll see how it stands up to reality on Wednesday.
