Great news for US buyers – the Xperia Ray is officially available to buy in your country in it’s unlocked form, Sony Ericsson have announced.

The Xperia Ray is listed at online retail sites including newegg.com and is for sale at $424.99 with no carrier tie in.We did wonder if the handset would be tied in with an AT&T release due to specifications released when the handset appeared on the FCC website however, this isn’t the case and the Xperia Ray is fully unlocked and ready to go.

Coming preinstalled with Android version 2.3.4, the Ray features the same camera as the powerful Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, namely an 8.1-megapixel camera with an Exmor R CMOS sensor. The Ray also adds a front facing camera into the mix for a more ‘socially aware’ handset with amazing power and features that is sure to take the US by storm.
