I also agree that since the S500/P1i there has been little innovation coming from SE and the quality of their new phones hasn't been great w/almost endless 2mpx cam phones. This one doesn't look great quality either. The best one after the P1 is probably the W890 but even that seemed slow and lacking when I tried it. It pains me to say that because I really enjoy SE's older handsets and I love my w710i/k800i.
Colour is kinda ugly and looks pretty cheap, atleast in materials.... maybe a bit ugly?
But coming from SE, it may be a good device.
Some people have too much time to waste...
Anyway, the look of this handset instantly reminds me of the T610. I prefer the K800's design personally.
Not really fond of S/E recent industrial designs. Since K750/W810, the designs have shown no real improvement, nor innovative solution as before. I won't even go into aesthetic quality.
You guys are so annoying with your 'I'm first', '2nd!11!!!', and so forth.
Just comment on the article goddammit!
And anyway, the phone looks cheap and nasty IMO. The lens cover looks like very cheap plastic IMO. The better change it for the retail version.
