Do you know where the N93 stole that design from? Japanese phones have traditionally been ahead of the rest of the world.
SE, Sharp, NEC and Panasonic are not like your typical manufacturers in Japan, they cater to a different market that has evolved way past markets outside of Japan.
Oh, google the SE W44s or the W41s and tell me who copied the N93. Note the announcement and release schedules of those phones in relation to your favourite N93.
They have stolen the design from Nokia's earlier N series phone. The N93 had the same screen functions and Sony Ericsson ripped that design off. I hate Sony Ericsson.

interesting to have it posted here, but not like this is released outside of japan (it clearly has kddi AU badged on the phone)

I wonder they called it a bravia phone, well it doesn't have AMOLED for viewing pleasure,nor a projector. . . what made this special? Cyber-shot had great imaging capabilities, walkman had a lot of audio goodies?

Im sure SE has the capabilities to design matching or greater phone as softbank, just look at their portofolio
Anonymous, 19 May 2010Sony Ericsson have been making phones in Japan for over 3 years, nothing new to be honest...
... moreJust to correct! SE have been busy in Japan since their establishment. ;)
SE took a rest from NTT Docomo from 2008 till 2010 (X10)!
Anonymous, 19 May 2010japanese only phone meaning it's features can only be use in japan. the koreans and taiwanese ... moreYou are definitely right, when saying that South Korean, Taiwanese Chinese will rise from now. Cheaper labour with gained knowledge is a very strong competitive advantage, just like the Japanese rose.
However, I think you should keep in mind (if you know anything about the Japanese market) that the Japanese market is extremely expensive to supply to, as the market sets the standard and not the manufacturers. Examples of these are, TV tuner, Barcode reader, Mobile FeliCa payment system to begin with. These manufacturers first have to meet the demand of their locals before going international. And again, due to suck severe competition, many are going bankrupt or merging with others.
