It features a 4.6-inch HD Reality Display, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of 1080p video recording, and a 720p front-facing camera.

The Xperia XT also has 3G+ capability, near field communication (NFC; which enabled 'one-touch' connectivity)

The smartphone is, of course, PlayStation Certified for PlayStation Mobile gaming, contains the Walkman application, and promises 3D surround sound.

Skyfall is hitting Australian cinemas tomorrow (November 22).
