Xperia S is the First Sony Xperia NXT Series Smartphone

Yes, you did not read it wrong. I did not make a mistake in the headline. Sony Ericsson is slowly going away and becoming just Sony. Even the latest Xperia S sports a Sony brand, rather than Sony Ericsson.

In their Press Release, there is an “*” on the word Sony associating with the Xperia phone. It states: “For illustrative purposes only.  Not for commercial use or re-sale.  Use of “Sony” brand subject to regulatory approval.

So, that is why it is the first Sony smartphone from the Xperia NXT Series.
