window phone is sucks right now but if u have n e sence u would no they wont flop or back down they have the juss cause android is better in allot of ways dont mean it will stay better me for one im open to change but i think sony should have hold a bit or jolla tizen ubuntu to arrive as well i for one also hate the fact that nokia wont use android i n e ways i guess in the long long run it will play to there advantage 2014/2015 but for now it dumb cause if nokia made android samsung could have a real prob
wg96, 26 Feb 2013wrong move!..I wish we can see sony with windows phone 8..Going to wm8 is the worst idea, they should stick with android. about firefox OS these will be not globally, it will be only distributed carrier providers
Come on guys.. Don't blame nokia for everything.. When android was in its development Nokia already launched smartphones through SYMBIAN (5230, 5233, X6, N8).. Don't forget it.. If it isn't for Nokia we wouldn't have learned about smart phones..
Jonathan, 26 Feb 2013I am also cancelling my pre-order for the Xperia Z. The processor and display are not on par w... moreI'm very sure dat u never c any SONY phones in ur life~
Every1 is fancy wit those names oni...
A lot of ppl never compare it seriously~
It's juz wording~
Ppl juz fancy wit those bombastic words...
If Apple n Samsung really hav their tech upgraded/improved~
Y cant they came out LED phone screen wit Full HD 1st?
SONY can even use old tech (TFT) n make it clearer n more reality than other brands~
SONY tech is greater than others...
Dun keep saying SONY hav bad screen...
Pls look at SONY Xperia Acro S~
It has a HDMI output...
Wat does dat mean?
The phone has enuf resolution n hardware to output HD images / videos...
Why other brands dun hav it?
Coz they dun hav dat kind of tech n resolution...
So haters juz keep quiet n play wit ur plastic phone~
N watch how SONY gonna win as it always...=]
FromChinaWithHeart, 26 Feb 2013Wrong moved Sony ! Very wrong! Should've go with WP 8. WP 8 won't die and peoples just have to... moreU own a galaxy s3 and u want to own one of the lumias..... Joke of the day
Ubuntu mobile is yet to come.... Is this move is right or wrong....m not gonna comment on this....BUT sony dont move plans to wp8... Its just a crapiest os.... look at nokia after they left the meego they still waiting for a boost in sales and BB z10 with same concept of meego already sold out in some markets....
FromChinaWithHeart, 26 Feb 2013Wrong moved Sony ! Very wrong! Should've go with WP 8. WP 8 won't die and peoples just have to... moreFunny how you nokia fans ditch os a new os alternative. While infact nokia's os has a history of flopping. Belle,symbian, wp7.8 all flops. So you guys dont have any rights to argue that the new os will be a flop. Wp8 will soon flop coz nokia is so narrow minded, they dont want to switch to other os.
wg96, 26 Feb 2013wrong move!..I wish we can see sony with windows phone 8..Me too .
wg96, 26 Feb 2013wrong move!..I wish we can see sony with windows phone 8..Sony should make a Windows Phone... much like the iconic X1 and X2 sliders.
Badstar, 26 Feb 2013I wish I could grow old like you. But not as close-minded as you. Try to close your eyes and f... moreHmm~
My life is boring?
Whose the one saying "need long usage time"?!
Hang out wit frenz then stick 2 ur phone screen till nite?
Ur life is worse than boring then...==
"The worse to hold overtime is undoubtedly the xperia z. And galaxy s3 maybe ugly but most phones now get a cover"...
Lik u said all the phones getting a cover~
Then most of the time u r holding the phone wit the cover...
The cover quality is the one 2 b questioned~
Hav u ever tried Xperia Z wit a cover then compare it wit GS3?
Or u juz saying it by ur imagination?
Obviously u cant try it~
Coz u cant put a cover on a sample phone...
If GS3 nid to get a cover 2 look nice~
Obviously Xperia Z wins...=]
If only the Xperia Z could dual boot either Andy of FFOS... Here's hoping for the future.
Actualy I was hoping Sony will go for Ubuntu :D Much more freadom than wp8. Think of the programming posibilities it has.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2013Why would they waste their time and money on this ugly OS?you are right about this OS being ugly, i think it doesn't bring anything new either but Sony wasted enough time with an even uglier OS:) which as we all know Sony's financial situation, didn't pay up...anyway, it's a good thing more OSes are coming to make life harder for Google:)
i think Sony must go for Ubuntu as well.
but this is a good move.
