I will not buy Sony phone ever again until i see proof that they are serious player and provide timely software updates.

Sony, please use your time, money, resources to serve the existing users instead of making new phones with a OS no one wants or care about.

Mozilla OS is the worst OS in the world. It is not the future. Check Ubuntu OS, maybe thats the real future. But android will survive also, for next 5 years, top1. See new UMI phone at 260 usd!!! wowoww

Not a right time to advertise like this if this is not a main stream final version. Seems Deadly slow and Laggy. OR if it is final w.r.t the Core of the OS then, epic fail. but again! we should wait for official release with some device.

Sony with Mozilla?It seems Sony hasitate to get along with Windows juz like Nokia with Android. Big Ego Problem for both 2 companies. How will Mozilla Survive against other established players. It will take some time for them to establish.

Or maybe because the whole lot of customisation on android makes it too mainstream that a closed and restricted one is the new 'flair'. Get a grip old man. The only good thing about B2G or WP8 is that they are new, and new ones are not always better but at least B2G is an open sourced.
