Sony's new smartphone tease has delivered the telephonic goods, with the Sony Xperia miro arriving to bring heavy Facebook integration and Ice Cream Sandwich to the masses. Fronted by a 3.5-inch touchscreen, with a 5-megapixel camera on the back, the Xperia miro comes with Sony's custom Xperia with Facebook software, allowing for easy sharing and liking through the OS.

There's also a front-facing camera for video calls, DLNA streaming support and a "large battery" - with no specific figures - for "longer usage." Sony has also thrown in its xLOUD audio boosting technology, for a promised increase in audio performance.

As with other Xperia handsets we've seen before, there's a supposedly "unique" illumination system for alerting you to new messages and other news. Why Sony can't just have a multicolor LED we're not sure, but if you've always wanted a tiny disco in your pocket then the company is becoming the go-to firm to provide it.

Pricing and availability for the new smartphone is yet to be confirmed, though Sony has said that it will be offered in black, black/pink, white, and white/gold variants. We're guessing a low- to mid-range price tag, however.
