Apparently, Sony's Facebook page had a countdown counter these past few days, hinting at a new product. That countdown ended a few hours ago and the new product is the Sony Xperia Miro, a 3.5-inch smartphone that is designed for being socially connected.  Not too many details were released, but what we do know  aside from the screen size is that it has a 5MP rear camera, Android 4.0, some kind of built-in Facebook functionality and DLNA for wireless media connectivity with TVs, tablets and PCs.
