Also having a Xenon flash occupies a lot of space because of the capacitor used to fire the flash..But hey lets make the device a bit thicker and put a decent battery in at same time.S/E has answered lots of folk needs with real button smartfones and hope this continues,,seeing all these boring same design slabs day in day out is depressing..Manufacturers where are your design teams,,stop bringing out souless boring slabs,,do some clamshell or slider designs with real buttons to push..

Yeah, agree with you on that one, i would love to have Xenon flash on the device, i would even be willing to sacrifice the looks and the design in favor of the Xenon, but beats me why no Android has come out with one. So far N8 is still producing the best images despite the darkness or the weather. Actually im more or less pleased with N8 running on Belle, its a bit slow though.

What a silly move putting a cover over the USB port, with that fantastic screen you will have to charge every 8 or 9 hours, the cover will be broken off within a month or so.

Sony WHERE is a Android with Xenon flash please, there is no Point in having a 12 megapixel camera with only a useless led flash.

I won't touch Sony now they have dropped Ericsson out of principle I think they are doomed to failure. Ericsson were the best and one of the first, I hope Ericsson is going to get back in to the market again.
