Sony ST21i Xperia tipo. The Sony ST21i Xperia tipo has been our favorite entry level Android for the past two months. The tipo comes with a 3.2-inch display, a decent 320 x 480 pixel resolution, 2.5 GB of user available internal storage, which expandable via MicroSD card, and a surprisingly large 1500 mAh battery. It's no speed demon with a 800 MHz ARM Cortex A5 processor and 512MB of RAM, but at at less than 8Kit is really an excellent deal.
Now a dual core version of the Sony ST21i Xperia tipo, the ST21i2 is now available, for a bit under 8K. For a few hundred pesos for an extra SIM slot is not a bad deal.
Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562. Samsung also has a new dual SIM smartphone in the local market. the Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562. At a bit below 14K this phone costs twice as much as the Xperia tipo dual.
The Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562 offers a larger, 4-inch display with a higher 480 x 800 resolution. The Galaxy S Duos has a 25% faster processor and 50% more RAM than the Xperia tipo.
