Of late, it has become a fad to market the smartphone on its slim and weight features because this toy remains in the hands of the users for most of the time and the slimness really matters. To catch on with this trend, Sony has launched yesterday Xpreia T3, which the company claims “is a light and ultra-slim sensation that’s just as pleasing to hold, as it is to look at”. The Xperia T3 is just 7mm thick and weighs 148 grams. We can’t call Xpreia T3 the slimmest smartphone because Gionee of China claims that their Elife S5.5 is the slimmest smartphone in the world with thickness of 5.5 mm.
The Xperia T3 comes in stainless steel frame and the back cover is designed with matte material. The T3 will be available in three colors: white, black and purple.
We are not disputing here which is the slimmest smartphone but the users prefer such types of smartphones. Besides slim feature, the customers prefer TRIM ( pun intended) feature also. By trim, we mean the trimming in price also. As far as India is concerned, the customers prefer good featured smartphones which are reasonably priced and there is lot of demand for such smartphones. We are not aware how the Xperia T3 will be priced in India when it touches India, but in order to be successful, it should be in the reach of the majority of the prospective buyers. The Xperia T3 comes with good features and some of them are listed below :

We would like to mention here the capabilities of the camera of T3 as Sony specialises in the imaging technology. The Xperia T3 is packed with Cyber-shot leading camera expertise with Exmor RS, which Sony claims will allow you to take exceptional pictures even in challenging lighting conditions. Moreover, with HDR for video feature, you can shoot beautiful films, even when backlit and with SteadyShot, all your photos will come out smooth and distortion-free.
Having explained the prominent features, the moot question what should be the TRIMMED price of this smartphone. In our opinion, in India, it should be in the range of Rs. 18,000. What is your opinion? You can share your thought on this with us.
