My guess:

Hayabusa - LTE phone for Japanese Docomo. Probably Xperia ION-base.

Mint_i - Sony's first quad core phone???

I can't see both Mint and Hayabusa being phones. Not only is 562EURO really expensive but even if that's the price they are targeting, these are being released 2 months apart. Not realistic to make 2 high end smartphones compete with each other in the same market like that.

...let's hope this is true...

I do think Sony are going to need something better than the Xperia S / Ion to beat the competition this year...

Hopefully their big guns will be unleashed MWC - I for one would like to try out Sony for a change!

Ooooh, an Android xenon flash, now that WOULD be nice... I wonder why they went out of fashion and everyone went back to led? Xenon's took FAB pics - especially old Sony ones...K900 was it?

This is looking very promising for Sony. They are doing their best to put their name back onto the top of the table where they once were. Although, this may come at a price as the Sony brand name will become more valuable.

I do hope their hardware is on par with Samsung, because their user interface on Android is pretty good and enjoyable to use.
