Sony's Xperia TX, dubbed by the company as being "the new James Bond smartphone", will hit Aussie shores on 28 November as part of Vodafone's range of phones for outright purchase through Sony stores.

The handset is priced at AU$629 RRP, and will be available on Vodafone's AU$50 per month plans.

The Xperia TX is Sony's latest attempt to make its presence felt in the smartphone category, though so far it has struggled in many regions next to the likes of Apple and Samsung. The TX is attention grabbing, though, with a 13-megapixel camera and 4.6-inch 720p resolution display. It also supports the latest wireless connectivity options: near-field communication (NFC) and Miracast.

Check out our preview of the Xperia TX for a more in-depth analysis.

Thanks...I think?

I guess that means there's going to be some serious product placement in Skyfall...?

Sony has doomed it from the start by giving it to Vodafail. Shame really

It might support miracast, but will it be running an OS capable of using it out of the box, or are we going to have to wait for an update to 4.2 to use it.

That's a good question. The demo I saw on the LG Optimus G was running on 4.1, but I wonder whether it also runs on ICS. I have the Xperia TX handset here, but no Miracast adapter, unfortunately.
