So it looks like I understand the mobile industry better than I expected, though I wasn't expecting an announcement for another month!
I was pretty spot on with those specs, Officially the E1 will have MSM8210, 512MB RAM, Android 4.3 and 4 inch 800x480 screen. It's not as good as Xperia M, it has less RAM and we don't know how the Cortex-A7 CPUs will compare to the Krait CPUs. My guess is it won't be as powerful, but pretty close due to the slightly lower resolution (800 vs 854) and the extra 20% clock speed.
I was very surprised by the T2 Ultra, however I find 6 inch screens disgusting so I would never predict it. the 800x480 resolution hopefully means the death of the tiny 480x320 resolution.
The Xperia M is currently selling for 5100 CZK which is about 190EUR, the Xperia E1 is supposed to be below 175EUR according to the hint on the press release. Currently I still prefer Xperia E1.
