MTS adds Sony Xperia(TM) T to wireless handset lineup

WINNIPEG, Nov. 23, 2012, 2012 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- MTS customers able to buy "The Bond Phone" in time for the holidays Stock Symbol: MBT MTS today announced that Sony Mobile's newest and most advanced smartphone - XperiaTM T - is now available in MTS Connect stores across Manitoba. Made famous as the phone used by 007 in the latest James Bond theatrical release Skyfall, Xperia T offers Sony's latest HD technology, NFC-enabled connectivity, and a suite of state-of-the-art, preloaded media applications.


"With Xperia T, Sony Mobile raises the bar when it comes to smartphone design, function, and next-generation features," said MTS President Kelvin Shepherd. "I am thrilled that MTS is among the first in Manitoba to make this new smartphone available to customers." Xperia T features include a 4.6 inch HD display powered by the Mobile BRAVIA(®) Engine to provide razor-sharp HD images. Capturing photos is made possible by a 13 megapixel HD camera with a quick-launch feature that goes from sleep to snap in 1.5 seconds. Xperia T sends photos, music and videos wirelessly to other NFC-enabled devices by simply tapping them together to establish a connection. The device also comes with preloaded apps designed to help users organize and share music, videos, and photos.

"Customers will enjoy apps like Album that lets them edit photos on the go," said Mr. Shepherd. "And with MTS's 4G LTE Network in Winnipeg and Brandon, they can upload and share photos with family and friends faster than ever before." MTS subscribers with Xperia T will have access to Manitoba's only 4G LTE Network which offers download speeds of up to 75 Mbps. And, with 97% of the Manitoba population covered by MTS's 4G HSPA+ Network, they will continue to have great high speed coverage outside of Winnipeg and Brandon. Customers will also benefit from over 185 MTS Wi-Fi hotspots across Manitoba.

With plans priced as low as $48.50 per month, the Xperia T starts at $79.99 (based on a 36-month term).
