We have no details other than its “talk, text, time” theme and what we can(‘t) see: the Xperia is a no-frills candybar with a transparent, monochrome LCD screen.
You’ll notice in the video below that the black buttons aren’t even labelled with numbers. I actually prefer this absurdly minimal design to the still product render, however impractical, as it takes a phone designed purely to be striking and makes it even more striking.
The Pureness will be available in unspecified but select cities in the US this November. And while I can resist the gimmick this time around, the first 100 per cent transparent phone, no matter how crappy it may be, will be rewarded with my highly sought $US300 with two-year contract.
