I guess the Forbes & Bloomberg websites I read should be taken with a grain of salt then, as they are American publications, & are most likely biased. I don't need to head to the library get accuracte information

Next time you want to talk out of both sides of your mouth, maybe you should provide some "facts" of your own on Indian & Chinese magnates becoming the wealthiest people in there world, instead of relying on some anecdotal evidence.

As far as likening the financial recession that the US is bouncing back from very well I might add, to the Great Depression, I don't remember standing in any bread lines. What a reach....

America rebuilt Nazi destroyed Europe, provides billions each year in humanitarian aid, keeps the peace worldwide, rid the world of that mass-murdering, blood thirsty tyrant Saddam Hussein & so many other positives, that I couldn't possibly list them all.

What does your country do for the rest of the world? Next time you want to pick apart the United States & focus only on the negatives, look in your own backyard, corruption is right around the corner.

Marketing? Isn't marketing suppose to aim at making profits and not kicking the axe with your own foot? Well SE's marketing scheme always sucked. You know why, 'coz they they BELIEVE (in there glass-half-full caps) that SE handset only competes with the other SE handsets already launched and thus don't want to cross/compete market share (which has already been chewed up by Nokia and Samsung) with the other SE models. Thats stupidity of pink-slip proportions.

Oh Greg...

That was very inspiring.

Perhaps it is you who should read a book, I prefer to read books for fiction only BTW...for straight statistics I prefer good ol' Google.

Anyway, you will find that the wealthiest people in the world by country are indeed American. Not only are the wealthiest people Americans, but no other countries even comes close.

It's really entertaining how the everyone loves to spew the anti-American sentiment until they get their ass in a sling.

Although I'm also sad about the omission of Af, SE have chosen to limit the spec of X8 to make it affordable. Honestly, it's better to lose AF than wifi. Furthermore for me, all led flash sucks so it's useless if se decided to put one! This is not a cameraphone so don't expect it to have a proper flash(xenon or plazma) or even led and AF and other usual things like face detection, smart contrast, continuous focus, touch focus and smile shutter..

GSMArena? Whats wrong with the Flash Ads in the Top header section? Every time page reloads, it block half the screen when the flash advertisement expands. Is it intentional? At least make the Middle Content panel Float down when the Flash Ad at the top Expands. Jeessss. Just put it inside a for crying out loud!

SE are gonna get into loosing territory yet again judging by the Phones, OS versions and the Not-Kept-Price-Promises they are dishing out one after the other. It like some weired 3rd Century Ring
Master Manager is running the Product Facility Design Parts. He/She sucks in designing phones and understanding the market altogether. Is he/she a Midival History Honors or something? Fire them, save the company, or hire me or my grandma if you need better design feature-perfect phones for each of the budget classes!

3MP minus Flash and AF, Whats wrong with you. Nokia and Samsung must be laughing at your blunder of a phone features right about now.

Something or the other is always missing with disastrous consequences with SE:-
X10:-FM Radio, Video Call, Multitouch (even after update to 2.1) are missing at its price tag;
X10mini: Video Call, 320x240 low resolution, fixxxed Batteries?;
X10MiniPro: Video Calling Cam, 320x240; X8: 3MP camera without LED or AF. Wow? Just Wow? You guys relly know how to puncture potential winners.

Now what? X8Mini?

That alone says that all. The only Android phone this is remotely similar to is the Wildfire or Optimus. It could have been a good mid range phone if it had a better camera, OS, and maybe 3.2" screen.
