Xperia tipo: Another Entry-Level Phone from Sony

Sony just announced Xperia miro on Facebook, and yes they have another two smartphones for all budget-conscious consumers: the Sony Xperia tipo and tipo dual.

Sony Xperia tipo and tipo dual are entry-level Android devices that runs on Ice Cream Sandwich. They basically both have the same specs. The only difference is tipo dual is a dual-sim phone (but not dual-standby). Tipo dual is also the first dual-sim phone of the company.

Both phones are powered with 800 MHZ processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225AA chipset) (same with miro). It sports a 3.2" HVGA TFT screen and has a scratch resistant mineral glass. Also, it has a 3.2 MP camera, 2.9 GB of memory (expandable through MicroSD), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, and a 1500 mAh battery.

Seems like Sony is surprising everyone by releasing budget phones? Is this a good move?
