Seems like Sony is restarting its strategy from early 2012. Xperia S, P and U, all dual core from top to bottom (no useless single core budget model), this time its Z, SP and L.

Last time it started so well that way, but later they ruined their lineup with underperforming superlaggers like Tipo and Miro, and then followed J and E. Hope they dont do that this time, maybe they can launch a superbudget dualcore A9 (novathor) to continue the great value of the Xperia U in addition to Z, SP and L, but the single core A5s must be allowed to die a quiet death without any successors.

If the SP has a reasonable small display they can keep T/TX in the lineup as well, T/TX will be to the SP what Xperia Ion is to the Xperia S/SL now, and then there is probably still a place for Xperia V also. Nice lineup then.

Absolutely right there. Sony is definitely good in announcing new phones but can't say the same when it comes to launching it in the market. There is a lag of about at least 6 months or so before you can actually buy it & that also depends which part of the world you are in. They are also hopeless in updating Android OS. That will take about 1year for them to do it. They are talking about competing with Samsung & the rest for top notch Android phones market. Until they can put their act together they can only dream on.

The top guns like Samsung only launch 2-3 flagships a year n they stay on top till the next versions!
