Now, if only Nokia did this: announce something cool and quickly get it out there while people are still impressed.
SE is hardly my favourite brand, but credit where it's due!

Usually UK everything are expensive, in my country the price will be around 300$-360$ which is reasonable.

This is the price for a Sim FREE phone, buy it on a network and you will save at-least 80-100 pounds. I'm sure you wont be complaining about price then.

Bought an Arc, love it, spent a large some on it, it is true but would buy it even if it was 50 or 100 more expensive. That is the plain truth.
Over priced? Divide the price of a SE phone by the number of year you use it, them do the same with other brands and you will see it is a pretty sweet deal.
Going back to the topic, love this one and If I hadn't bought the arc already maybe I would go for this one. Also very beautiful, a bit smaller and really a stunner to look at.
oh, by the way, the last guy who I showed my Arc just to see a photo I had took, decided to get ride of his pretty lame Samsung and buy one just like mine.

Why SE doesn't understand? Overpriced devices all the time. But here, is the big mistake Ice Scream is coming and it's optimazed for Dual Core phones. But SE doesn't have one Dual Core. Then phone like Galaxy SII, LG Opt 2, LG Opt 3D, HTC Sension, Moto Photon 4G, Atrix 4G, Droid X2, Droid 3, Droid Bionic 4G and more will update to android 4.0 and will be cheap. Then SE will come with a overpriced Dual core phone running Ice Cream.

SE failed

ha ha ha. first it was X10 mini & pro with some sub 2.8" screen then X8 with a 3" screen then Xperia Mini & pro with 3" screen & now some ray with 3.3" screen. good SE, you have learnt a lot from Motorola. motorola didn't went bankrupt, but SE surely will (or at least fail in mobile development completely).

and before anyone complain, i know their internal but what is the use of packing a powerful proccy & good amount of ram if the screen is close to unusable. trust me, anything below 3.5" & Android usage takes a serious hit.
