Electronics vendor, Sony Mobile, has announced that the smartphone used in the latest James Bond installment, Skyfall, will be available in Australia from November 28.

The Sony Xperia XT will be available either through Vodafone on a $50 plan, or outright from Sony Centres for $629.

The device ships with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Krait MSM8260-A dual core processor.

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).
