Ironically you can see by yourself the kind of support Sony has in ROMs such as Cyanogenmod.

They sure are there in the support list, no doubt about that, but how many of them can actually run the latest version (CM10.1)? I stand my case good sir.

Sony eying top 3 positions in India. This is one for the markets like India and Brazil were budget phones are in demand. I think the price would be around $350. Sony is bad about one thing. Sony phones battery life is terrible. If this phone comes out with a 5 inch screen size and hopefully decent screen resolution and quad core processor, battery life i think would be 2000 mAH which is not impressive. If its priced aggressively i am game for it.
