If you press the big triangle (Commonly known as the play button) on the screen when previewing Panorama, the phone will go full screen and scroll through the image. Obviously it cannot go full screen as an overview as the screen dimensions wouldnt accomodate that!

I'd have been more impressed with a non-touchscreen dumbphone style walkman phone as well as the touchscreen type. No inline remote for track change etc....mmmmmmm, so every time you want to skip pause stop a track you have to take the phone out of your pocket and touch a screen, well isn't that clever (irony).

This is why i prefer dumbphones with music players, i can keep it in my pocket and press the buttons, especially handy if in wet conditions.

I'm all for touchscreen phones however they are missing a trick by not doing dumbphone style phones with all the features.

NO, IT SI NOT THE TIME TO DROP WALKMAN, because it means over 30 years of tradition. This is your pedigree, iti like having a good friend again with me from school, but for god sake make it to be a real walkman, with real smashing sound through headphones output, real power like iphone4 have. why it is so hard for sony to put a powerful amplifier for headphones, to rise from weak 2x5mw to a 2x40-50 mw output and to make history again in portable sound?? HEY SONY, NOW YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN AGAIN. BLOW MY SONY XB-100O HEADPHONES!!!

Which of the two has a better camera performance, the Xperia mini pro or live with walkman? Thanks to whoever will answer this based on a good analysis.

Dear Sony, It's time to drop the name, 'Walkman'. It sounds really old, like 'tape,' or 'cd'. It's time to partner with some USA carriers. Step up your game.

I don't get it why GSMArena didn't accept my comment about the camera noise reduction algorithm... I was not trying to trolling or anything like it, I'm just telling the truth... I'm not a Sony hater and in fact I actually own a Sony camera... So telling the truth is trolling now? That excessive kinda of censure just sucks...

I m feeling tht GSMArena is being rude with audio quality section. Just by looking in to graph given by them we can say that it is better than nokia c5 where they said 'Great audio quality'
