Can't say who's right who's wrong.i'm an S.E. user over ages,but that doesn't mean i'm freaky fan of S.E. Or any other brand.anyways,rachel doesn't have S.E. Style at all,it looks curvish,smoother,all S.E. Users can see why.eventrough,design is atractive,and phone specs are bit wicked,but anyway not bad at all,i'll anyway go for omnia pro nowadays,S.E. Is always careful with what they announce,big + for that,but since S.E. Is quite new in this touchscreen area,i'll wait couple of years untill i get attached to S.E. Mobs again.why you people compare iphone with every newborn gadget here?iphone is good,i like its lines and display the most,but that device is just overrated,chill down all.give yourselfs opoturnity to try other brands.and what about that kiki.i am pro graphics designer already for more than 6 years,moddeled many things,that kiki is just looking cheap,like from paper.someone forgot to move one layer in phtshp at that green one:D:D:D.perhaps rushed to publish it?:Dthat new display would be so inovative,but at those shots,its so darkish,not illuminated,anyway it's atleast nice try,whether it's from S.E. or not.atleast it brought people some topic in these days:D.look at your skills,and then judge others work,respect all brands,they try to fullfill YOUR wishes,and make your life easies,not just to fill their pockets(i hope:D).that were just my opinions:)

Why are so many people confusing this Xperia model with the X2? -- The X2 is one phone in the xperia line (the one with the slide-out keyboard and such)... and this is another... -- Even if this phone comes out before the other leaked Xperia model, that doesn't automatically make it the X2 (ex. Star Wars, and just about every other phone model numbering system) --

@Phone -- Looks like a great one --

personally, i think its a fake. anyway, even if its not, it looks nothing like the xperia x2 leaks, which hasnt been announced yet. if it is the next xperia x2, then it still needs to b announced and put into production which takes SE ages. if its not the x2, its gna be outdated before its even announced.
i like what SE comes up with, wat prevents me from buyin their products is that they cant release it in time b4 sum1 beats them 2 it. like pixon 12 which shud come out b4 satio/idou yet was announced later.

Very snappy interface and very nice GUI make it a great OS. I'm excited to see an android XPERIA, its bound to be something great.

I think it's a brilliant move by SE. Iím an X1 owner and the phone itself, hardware wise, itís brilliant, thereís no other like it on the market. But what it lacked was a good fluid/smooth MOS (mobile operating system), plus the X1 was a little small for the fingers. Itís time to move on and make SE range of phone more tactile, more thumb friendly. The future of phone is touch screen and its here to stay, so itís primitive to think Ďkeyboardí and a virtual keyboard is more versatile, and equally as user friendly, so why back track?! We just got to get passed our comfort zone. There is no point having good hardware and an inadequate MOS, or you wouldnít notice the capability of device. The Android is a brilliant MOS, but all the pervious hardware itís been released on has been poor; itís smooth and fast. The Android MOS is the most resourceful MOS on the market, and I personal believe it out shines the Apples MOS. This marriage between the Xperia and Android is made in mobile heaven and if this phone lives up to what weíve just read, than SE have got a winner... this will kick the pants of any phone. As a group of tech lovers, letís hope this leak is a real deal and letís hope SE keeps all the positive points of the X1.

Of course is very good on paper but if like SONY EXPERIA X1 is not gonna come out anytime soon. When finally comes out will be obsolete already.

idk but it looks like a fake to me. xperia x2 hasnt been anounced yet and sum1 thinks se has already built this phone? alternativly if this is the x2, it doesnt look anything like the other leaked pictures of it or blueprints. it lacks a keyboard. how come this leaked picture is so clear? if u look rly cloesly at the se logo u notice the white light reflection on it does not match the light reflection from the rest of the phone, look around/at the camera and edges. and of course it is leaked with a phone which doesnt look like anything se has ever done b4 and this phone (kiki) is rumored to be the 1st to show 3d images.
i wud like to believe this is true but it seems unlikely

Everybody wake up,these "leaking photos" are some sort of marketing strategy because based on that SE finds out if their products will appeal to the wide public ( your opinon matters , if you're a hater don't bother,ppl will still buy a phone no matter what remarks are made to a brand )
Specwise this phone is good,design is kinda confusing,and speaking of Android OS even if it will be 2.0 ( Donut? ) i don't trust it that much...hope SE will customize it to hide it...better have multimedia capabilites on board like the X1 for example...Other than that i'm w8 for the final specs.
Cheers everybody

whatever SE haters say, you must remember SE audio quality is the best forever, flash UI is good and right now SE will use EXMOR sensor on their phone camera so though there will be other phone but it is still the best coz those things are SE power also the fastest processor for phone is 1Ghz.other phone cant beat this phone then when it's released in the market, SE will announce their new phone more and more,the other companies are followers and just try to beat them.SE is a Innovator.SE is the best

These specs wont be so spectacular in 6 months from now. Maybe it would be something to wait for if it was coming out in the Fall.

How popular is the Android OS? Are there a lot of applications for Android OS like Symbian and Windows Mobile?
