AT&T Gets The Sony Xperia TL: James Bond's Smartphone Comes To The U.S.

If it's good enough for James Bond, surely it's good enough for you, right? Sony and AT&T are hoping so, as the phone showcased in the upcoming Skyfall flick will be heading exclusively to AT&T in the U.S. The company's Xperia TL will offer a 13MP camera, integrated NFC, 4G LTE radio, and a 4.6" 1080x720 resolution display, which is powered by the Mobile BRAVIA Engine. There's also DLNA streaming, ‘One-touch’ connectivity for sharing with others, and there's even an Xperia SmartTag in the box. Using near field communication technology, SmartTags let you store device preferences for a variety of locations and situations – like opening and controlling volume on the music player if you head out for a run, turning on GPS and Bluetooth in the car or turning on your alarm and silencing your ringer at night.

Xperia TL includes three preloaded Sony media applications, Walkman, Movies, and Album, introducing a consistent user interface across Sony devices, while the 1.5GHz CPU should keep things humming. Android 4.0.4 is loaded, while Android 4.1 is said to be coming soon. There's also an MHL port for showing your media on a larger display, and it's available in any color you choose so long as you choose black. Pricing? That's MI6 top-secret, it appears.
