it does not need slide out keyboard as it has the same touch screen as other android phone and iphone which is finger friendly. i think it looks fantastic hopefully we get an ETA on it, OS does not bother me that much as you can update the ROM.

Im sorry but a 4" screen is just to big, 3.5" is about right (iphone). This phone looks good on paper, be interesting to see the UI but a couple of things bug me. Why in those photo's is it so thin and look like it has no way of sliding out for a keyboard, which surely any new xperia would have? Also for a phone as banged with so called features as this, where the second vid camera for calling?







I'm sorry but it looks like this Xperia comes without qwerty keyboard.
And why are you so sure that any new Xperia should have one?
I think it looks great =) I'm surely going to try this one out when it's available.

OK, at least Rachel looks best of all Xperia models.
Would like to test it, at least. When available, of course...

SE sets have the least problems, I am using Xperia and despite all the negative comments by the jealous haters who were too broken hearted that their beloved companies failed to produce a set like Xperia, I can confirm that Xperia is one of the BEST sets EVER, its neither buggy nor slow, so it concludes that SE does not release a set unless its fully tested and thats a fact.
If you wanna buy buggy and crappy sets by samsung then go ahead, but Sony Ericsson is and will remain the BEST.

The real problem with SE I find is that they leak their upcoming info too early. This is probably for 2010 and look how they have leaked it now. The way the market it progressing 4" screen and 1ghz cpu is obvious for 2010. Right now the screen size is at 3.8". Toshiba already announced 1ghz phone, Samsung is working on too. Even their feature phone sports 800mhz. So to me leaking info too early is just to create hype and headline. That's all. The specs looks impressive right now but it wont be when it actually comes to market. SE is not BEST right now. They could be if their vision materialized and they must keep tight-lipped about it. This is too far from real thing.

But does it have:

1) Capacitive touch screen?
2) Xvid/DivX support?
3) Camera flash
4) Browser flash
5) RDS Radio (not a deal breaker for me)
