The next Sony Ericsson Xperia teased, could it be the Arc S - read the full textToday we got the third teaser about the upcoming new Xperia phone. It will be announced on CES in Las Vegas in a few days. Unfortunately, all three teases show a device awfully similar with the arc/arc S rather than highly awaited arc HD, codenamed Nozomi. We already met the Nozomi/arc HD and it...

The problem SonyE have is that they're too quick to incrementally update their phones...

First they release the Arc - a great looking phone, but specs-wise lacking behind other flagships...
Then they release Arc S - a bit better, but still not getting there within 6 months of each other...

Similarly here - whatever the duo is called (Nozomi perhaps) - it's still about 6 months too late and when it comes out even more so..

Rumoured specs for Galaxy S3 - 4.5" screen, HD screen, 2MB RAM, 32gb storage + 32gb card storage, QUAD core processor, 12mb camera, etc. etc.

You see what SonyE has to contend with... why would you buy a Nozomi a) when you know they're likely to improve it 6 months down the line and b) when other manufacturers are killing them re: specs...?

The only reason people bought Arc was because if it's fab design...

This backwards-step in design - back to clunky, chunky rectangles that don't appeal to females as much as males is going to make them lose a lot of business...

I suspect HTC won't be far behind Sammy re: specs either - but again their designs are pretty poor...

WHO KNOWS WHAT FEB 28TH WILL BRING?!?!
HOPEFULLY SOME INNOVATION IN HANDSET DESIGN!!!

Can't u c in recent pic,
It's Sony's new phone which is not be in partnership with ericsson.

Look at the back panel,
The name appears to b too short even though not clear.

But it's not long as it used to be

Does anyone know what it in the bottom bit below the strip then?
