Anonymous, 27 Jun 2008why would anyone want this phone for $899.99 USD when u can get the iphone 3g for $199. Well this phone has a much sharper screen, runs windows mobile, sliding qwerty keyboard, a video recorder, much better camera than the iPhone, and more features overall.
There is no reason for the xperia to be expensive...Its got 3mp cam unit from k800i,,walkman,gps chip and hsdpa so they have all been designed allready,,batt+charger its all been done...The screen is new ,,thats it,,if s/e think they can charge the earth for it their wrong its nowt mega special,, !!!

Ummm maybe because you aren't gonna have to sign a contract to get it like you would the 3g iPhone. Don't get me wrong, I like Apple products, but acting like the 3G iPhone is the second coming of Jesus is just plain retarded, improvements over the 2g iPhone are marginal at best.

Mustafa AL-Obaidi, 26 Jun 2008Why they didn't make the software both in Arabic and Engish ?Im pretty sure it will have arabic support as it is a windows mobile device and they have arabic support the last i checked. although you might have to download it.
As for the screen only being 64k, that is because windows mobile cannot process anything above that many colors, this is why no windows mobile device has ever had more than 64k. As for noticing a difference, i doubt you'll be able to tell the difference between 64k and 16mil colors unless you hold them side by side and strain your eyes...besides the maximum colors your eyes can sense is 256k...16mil is useless. Also the extra resolution(WVGA as opposed to the standard QGVA) will be much more noticable and make images much sharper and actually be noticable on a 3" screen.
In regards to the release date, the Feb 2009 release date leak was already denied by Sony Ericsson. They confirmed that it will ship before the year is over. I can provide a link if you guys want it. The Sept date however has not been confirmed nor denied by Sony Ericsson so far...
whay so let this is not fer with janta.
we need to buy early as posible.

It seems like its gonna be a hit. But SE had better hurry up and release it before its outdated.
RaXa, 26 Jun 2008Hola @ brynn
hey ChUm .. u sure it's due to sep?? A lot of sites do say this is due september and its rumoured in some mags,,but remember nothing is set in concrete so lets hope its earlier..A lot of sites also say their are some delays and the realease date is feb 19th 2009..Put xperia release date into google there are a mixture of results to see but if 2009 is to be believed they may as well scrap this along with p5 as its too late then,,,,
Sony has been a unique sort of brand growing up in 80"s and 90"s with them miniaturising electronics and often a pretty expensive brand to buy but they are struggling with their mobiles,,its as if they dont care,,just chuck out the same spec in a different shell and hope it sells is the idea i get of s/e,,,but the biggest factor for me was the utter rubbish p990i and that took ages to come out so is this going to suffer the same fate??? If it does i am not going down that route again but i do want xperia to succeed...
