Images leak the international Sony Xperia LT29i 'Hayabusa' - read the full textWe came across some leaked images that show the international version of the Sony LT29i, codenamed Xperia Hayabusa. The images confirm a very close resemblance to the Japan-bound, LTE-capable Xperia GX, save for the lack of the FeliCa (Sony's NFC-based payment system in Japan) logo under the LED...

But what I want to let people know is this, I've said this before and repeating it now, until samsung release a mobile device as powerful and innovating as psvita it can never be in same category with sony. People fail to understand that sony can not release a phone to match or be nearer to psvita for now and for this reason of course, we won't be seeing much improvement in there mobile phones. Personally I believe they're are doing the right thing here. SAMSUNG MOBILE should be grateful to psvita.

Have had Sony, Ericsson and Se for more than 15 years. The Sony Xperia S was too dissapointing so I switched to Google Galaxy Nexus and are now using Galaxy S III. Sony did not listen to their customers. They contained with their cheap materials which got scratches and lost the thin painting after relatively short time.
Sony has lost......

There's no way Sony will release this with the old logo - so unless this is a very early prototype, or a fake, maybe the final design (different back cover, etc.) will differ somewhat...

Either way, unfortunately they're releasing another phone with last year's specs now... it's not looking pretty for Sony... not one handset with quad-core... forget the argument of whether it's needed or not - it IS needed simply to compete with HTC / Sammy / LG, etc. otherwise Sony becomes a second thought at best (and you'll notice is never in comparisons with other flagship handsets...)

Oh did I forget it also lasts all day so you may want to hide it from your friend (friends phone's battery is dead). (Att logo shows up then ad ends)"

If you are trying to compare the design of the S3 to this, I know a good shrink who would be happy to take you as a patient. The S3 may be alot of things but is far inferior to this level of design! Get over it.
