Giveaway: Sony Ericsson Xperia ray (winner announced)

It is competition time on Neowin once more and this time round we have a brand new Xperia ray to give away thanks to Sony Ericsson. This is a black Sim-Free model and is worth £300/$400. Tim previously reviewed the phone on Neowin back in September and it managed to get a very respectable 8/10 thanks to its outstanding camera, excellent design and great performance.

Sony Ericsson's beautiful Xperia ray mixes cutting edge design, materials and specs to create a phone that is as good as it looks. From the impossibly thin aluminium frame (9.4mm) through to the fast 1Ghz Processor that's partnered with Google's Android OS; all the Google services you love and access to thousands of Apps.

Top this off with with a camera and screen that borrows technology from Sony's own camera's and TV's. The Exmoor R mobile camera lets you shoot better shots in low light and the Xperia ray's display borrows Sony's BRAVIA technology from their TV's to create vivid, natural colours. The Sony Ericsson Xperia ray is as stunning inside as it s outside.
