Buying a smartphone off contract can often cost an arm and a leg but Future Shop currently has a Sony offering worth checking out should you happen to need one at this moment. Right now, you can pick up the Sony Ericsson Xpreia Ray Prepaid Smartphone for $99.99. Though it might not have as much glitz, glamour or attention as some of the ultra popular smartphones like the HTC One X or Samsung Galaxy S3, this is still an affordable smartphone with some good features.
A full breakdown can be found over at GSM Arena but some of the more notable features include:
- Android OS 2.3 Upgradable to 4.0
- 1 GHz Scorpion CPU
- microSD with up to 32GB Supported (4GB Included)
- 8 MP Camera with 3264 x 2448 Resolution, Autofocus, LED Flash
- 720p Video Recording
- Stereo FM Radio with RDS
- Scratch-Resistant Glass
For $100, this isn't a bad deal at all. If you're looking for a replacement or just something to tide you over for the duration of your contract, this could be worth a look. This phone will only work on Rogers, Telus and Bell compatible bands so Mobilicity and Wind users will have to look elsewhere. The phone is also Telus branded so you'll either need to be on that network or have the know-how to get it unlocked.
Thanks to forum user coolwarm for giving us the heads up on this one!
