For me, what's hot about Sony Xperia Miro is that it lets you enjoy Sony's remarkable TimeScape Android experience and Mobile Bravia multimedia services in a very affordable and gorgeous package.
Sure, it doesn't have the powerful innards and stellar imaging and video capture capabilities of its bigger and more expensive siblings, but given its ultra-low suggested retail price of only Php 10,490 (Yes, that's already totally low for a Sony device), I'm sure budget-conscious Sony Mobile fans will find Sony Xperia Miro very hard to ignore.
Also, it doesn't hurt that the phone is quite a head-turner. Sony Xperia Miro flaunts a svelte monoblock polycarbonate design, which is rather similar to what you'll find on the pricier, flagship-level release Sony Xperia Acro S and Sony Xperia S.
So when will this phone hit store shelves in the Philippines? Well, great news! It's now available at all Sony Mobile stores and retail outlets across the archipelago! So check it out!
Just between us though: Sony Xperia Miro looks great and all but I would advise you to add a bit more to your budget and just get Sony Xperia Go, which is a TechPinas Favorite this year. Unlike the former, the latter has yet to receive Android Ice Cream Sandwich update but all things considered (i.e, processor, speed, value added features, etc.), I believe Sony Xperia Go will be a far better purchase. Just telling it like it is --- like what TP has always been known to do.
