UPDATE: This contest is now closed. We’re happy to announce that Facebook follower Kim Nguyen has claimed the Sony Xperia S! Congrats Kim! We’ll have another contest coming up this week so keep your Twitter/Facebook page open for updates.

OK Android lovers, here’s your chance to win the latest device to be released in Canada! The Sony Xperia S is another PlayStation certified smartphone and runs OS 2.3, but will be upgraded to OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich very soon. Apart from the display being absolutely stunning, 4.3-inches with a resolution of 1280×720, the Xperia S has a 1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 12MP camera with Exmor R sensor and captures 1080p HD videos.

You can check out our full review of the Xperia S here, but if you want to win this you’ll have to do is either follow us and re-tweet this contest on Twitter (@mobilesyrup), “Like Us” on Facebook (Facebook.com/MobileSyrup), or join us on Google +. All current Facebook, Forum, Twitter and Google + followers are automatically entered. This contest closes May 4th and we’ll announce the winner shortly after.
