Here's the real Sony Ericsson Nozomi again, this time with benchmarks - read the full textThe Sony Ericsson Nozomi (or Arc HD if you will) is certainly not enjoying anonymity. The smartphone leaked so many times that we are afraid its manufacturer will have little news for us at the announcement event, which is scheduled for next week. Today, we got another batch of live shots of the...

And so, alas SonyE do it again...

They had a hit with the Arc last year, because it was a universally good handset design - it appealed to both male / female because of its curves, etc.

This year, they've taken a massive step back, churning out harsh, sharp rectangles that really will only appeal to the male contingent and with last year's specs... And just when you thought they had learned from 2-3 years ago...


GSMA have summed it up perfectly - and have echoed something I have said for months...

"You see, the Nozomi would be a fine competitor for the ultimate smartphone if it was released about six months ago, but given that it will only be announced now it will have a somewhat different mission."

You'll have Sammy / HTC / Moto all coming out in Summer with MASSIVE specs and to be fair all similar designs... WHY WOULD YOU GO FOR A MOBILE THAT HAS LAST YEAR'S SPECS?

And the most criminal thing about SonyE is that they appear to do this so that they can re-release the same phone with the 'S' at the end - giving it a speed boost a few months later... bad, bad, bad practice...

Just when I thought I might jump to SonyE for something 'different' they go and regress into the bland middle-of-the-road mobiles of 3 years ago...

Oh well, let's see what the rest come up with this year!

Having the most advanced hardware doesn't mean having the must performance as it is not only about hardware but also about tuning. As we know you can have 1000000 MPx camera and still have rubbish pictures and you can have a not so state of the art 8mpx or even 5mpx and have great shots.
will not buy this one as my arc is there to last but would sure love to have one!

Sony used to build phones with SD card slots, then they took an arrow in the knee.
