Nokia is dead since the first show up of Android, and sunk more when they adopted Windows Mobile as the main OS.

THIS IS USEFUL:

I was previously hesitant to try Sony mobile because my sister had a very bad experience about her W902. It became buggy and sent it for repair twice. She got fed up with SONY's service and that was her last Sony phone. She is now a happy iPhone user.

I got an XPERIA GO on 23 February 2013. When I reached home and tried the phone, it can not detect my SIM Card. I tried 2 other active SIMs but the result is the same. Then I noted that the SIMS get scratched after taking them out and wonder if the contacts have some manufacturing defect. I called Sony on 25 February 2013 and learned about this:

No one-for-one replacement. If they find any defect, they will repair it.

I came to conclude that BUYING A SONY MOBILE CAN MEAN BUYING A RE-CONDITIONED PHONE SINCE YOU ARE EFFECTIVELY GETTING A FAULTY OR REPAIRED PRODUCT. I think they should replace the phone with a new set, just like what the other brands do.

I WILL NEVER BUY A SONY MOBILE AGAIN. And I will cancel my order for Xperia Z.

SONY service sucks big time. And it's not good for a struggling company.

if Sony make a Windows 8 phone it is definitely a grab. But Firefox OS is a big no. Sony please make a Windows phone OS successor for Xperia X2.

Well, if even Sony goes for Firefox OS instead of Windows, there's a lot to learn for Nokia...
