It seem that king of "goodies" will be ony for WP7 and XBoX 360, that's the one of the strongest points of Microsoft, fully compatibility between Zune, XBOX, WP7 and Windows 7..

Now, seriously I miss smart dialling on my Arc a bit but not too much and may I remind you SE does have smart dialling on their phones: my SE W980 has it. They just don't have it on Android phones but on a big screen phone we don't miss that as much

Anything you have purchased can be redownloaded again... If you log into to the web based Android Market (https://market.android.com/) you can push all your purchases to your device

:D

oh! So that is why I could send my files to the tv and playstaion3 via wifi/dlna but couldn't access those on PS3. I thought I was doing something wrong or maybe the PS3 limited access to files to prevent piracy but it was actually a limitation of the DLNA support.
It will be useful to be able to do it in both ways.

I was still enjoying my last update and now this one comes. No big changes but it seems to me it is useful stuff.
Don't really understand why people used to say SE was band on costumer support and delivering updates, seems to me we do get much more updates than those fan boys from LG and Samsung get...
Chiscake, just wait a bit, don't worry, the last update took about 1 or 2 weeks to get here but it did and in good time. It depends on language, country and carrier.

Probably the best manufactured android handsets currently available. Nonetheless, they need a dual core processor to get over their LAG hiccups.

Compared to what happened with the X10 last year, Sony is indeed moving a lot faster.

Sony just needs to bring out their rumored dual core phone in time for the holidays.
