this is a great looking phone. awesome. too bad it does not have a secondary camera in the front so that when using video calls you can see the other party.
I can't believe this AWESOME phone had a st*p*d rumor about being pulled out! I know someone who has it and has no problems at all! Very good phone too!! And really really stylish with such great headphones and cool dock!!

anybody know when is the aino firmware update is coming out? what will it improve?
Software Update for Aino is available in India
I am currently updating my phone with new software will. It's size is 93.8
Will post after using my handset for 2-3 hrs about what software update changes
So aino users in India please update your phone
Regarding the Messaging section there is no such IM thing in it. But there is facebook integrated in the Messaging Section.
There is no walkmate app in Aino. I checked it on SE website and it seems Aino is not supported by walkmate.
Camera has Face detection, Auto, Macro, Infinite. Picture Size are 8MP (4:3), 7MP (3:2), 6MP (16:9), 3Mp (4:3), Full HD (16:9)..Pls mind this is the size of the picture, don't get confused in the Full HD thing. Its just the size. Theres no best pic in camera. But there is touch focus, in which you can touch the screen to take a pic or focus on a particular area to take the pic. There is Photo fix as well.
Google maps is available in the phone, it works very quick but its just an approximate.
My Aino came bundled with the following apps.
Bluetooth Robot (No idea what it is for)
Wisepilot (30 day navigation)(I have not tried it yet)
The so called "creaking sound" (I wouldn't consider) IS "not from the battery cover". It's from the keyboard. And once again its not a creaking sound (For me). Its just the keypad base which rests on a thin sheet as I said earlier. Its like a crispy sound but not annoying.
There is SIP too in Aino. Which mean you can make Voip calls from your phone.
Till now I have not experienced any sort of problem in my touch screen. I even tried swapping and tapping the screen very fast and not problems at all. Response was very quick and smooth.
0 call drops
0 voice call distortion
0 video call disturbance
According to my experiance, I would say it is the BEST offering from SonyEricsson.
Its Exterior has QualitY and believe me in new purchased models stickr does Not peel off. Its very Beautiful.
Its GPS and WiFi are Very Strong and work flawlessly.
All 3rd party applications including Google Maps can use WiFi.
It has decent 8.1 Mega pixel camera with Geo tagging, burst mode, Face detection, Smile Detection etc. Plus Strong LED which you can use as Torch and SOS Light. Video 30FPS and neat.
In case you do not want to use GPS but still Geotagging then it can Geotag your pics with cell id as well. You have an option to see your pics on in built Google Maps.
I would say that you can use most of the work without opening slider like calling ,3G video call etc.
In built User Guide is useful too.
Track ID is just a Magic. Try it.
Its BBC iPlayer compatible.
You can see full Song information on Main screen and its Divism theme changes when playing song.
As soon as you start the phone it catches the Network and battery life is good. Nice RDS Radio that can be handled with Walkman key.
Overall a Perfact Walkman Phone. Go and Buy it. This is my experiance.
10 out of 10
