I used it alot at first weeks I got my phone, I like the interface. But I never use it now because I guess I'm not that social. Timescape was also the name for the UI, but now it's just Xperia UI.

I think what ur talking about is "mediascape" that aggregates all the social contents at one place.

The neo series designs appealed to me more than the current rectangular xperia designs.
Sony should keep the neo series alive in 2013 with the successor of neo l but sans those old style teeth like physical buttons.

Sony havent had timescape UI since X10.

Timescape is an application for aggregating Social Media, and a damn good one at that if its set up correctly.

Don't brand bash if you dont have a clue what your chatting about.

Most operators wont accept Dual Sim Devices.
Sony already make a lot of ~4" Devices.
1GHZ DC is standard across they Mid tier since Q1 2012
1gb RAM is standard in mid-tier, and some low tier
Sony's 5MP beats most others 8MP IMO.

damn, this place hacks me off sometimes.

Hi Dear Sony,

Please release a Qwerty keyboard based dual core krait. Am tired of a bar phone.

Also please make the keyboard as solid as mini pro coz i still have it for more than a year now.

1. Ppl who buy sony: straight away change the ugly and not useful at all lousy TimeScape UI.

3. Sony = good specs at low price. It's all i can say.

This is why Sony able to maintain in the Android Market. Sony, Market need more of this:

1. Dual sim
2. at least 4.0 inches
3. Dual core 1ghz
4. 1gb ram.
5. 8mp.

at 200euro max.

5inches needed with same specs at 250euro.

Then high end 5 inches Quad core 3gbram at 500euro.

Sony pls. Dnt bring another droid with 512 ram, with non editable no of homescreens and less battery back up. The system itself captures around 300 mb of ram and the battery lasts barely a day. Please, something better this time around.

I think sony should reborn the VIVAZ, so XPERIA wont be lonely anymore, with something different from xperia lineup, maybe with phisical qwerty, or curve back, or with wp8. Its a choice 4 consumers, n maybe it can increase the shipment of sony phones. Always interested with sony phones.
