Photo tour of Sony's new Xperia P and U

Sony fills out its Xperia range with two new handsets announced at MWC and we go hands on to see whether they can excite like the Xperia S did at CES earlier in the year.

Sony Xperia P

Sony kicked off Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today by introducing two new handsets for its Xperia line, the Xperia P and the Xperia U. Both will play second fiddle to the Xperia S announced at CES earlier this year, though they both share the design.

The higher-end model of the two, the Xperia P, has a 4-inch display, a 1GHz dual-core processor, support for NFC, Gingerbread (sadly) and an 8-megapixel camera. It comes in several colours including the red hue seen here. Also, notice the transparent bar at the bottom of the phone.

The design is standard but not unattractive. Rounded edges and a smooth finish give the phone a nice feel in the hand. The camera lens sits on the back side.

The Xperia P also has a trim profile. Several external controls, including the volume rocker and camera shutter, sit on the right side.

Sony Xperia U

The Xperia U has a smaller 3.5-inch display. It shares the Xperia P's 1GHz dual-core processor, but it has a 5-megapixel camera. And don't expect Ice Cream Sandwich here, either.

In typical Sony style, the Xperia U also comes in several colours. Besides the white version (pictured here), we also spied a bright yellow handset.

From behind you'll just see the Xperia U's camera lens.
