san.in, 11 Sep 2012in every aspect they are irresponsible and very lazy too.. if this goes on think how would be ... moreYes. Tipo and tipo dual is released in almost every country Sony serves I think. So GSMArena should write "Available, Released" in both model's specs and they should prepare a review asap, Techradar offered review in July.
make.believe, 11 Sep 2012so we will see miro in market in anthr week or so...but marked price by flipkart is too much..... morei think they are fixing the price depending on the daily interests and popularity since the anouncement.. thats why they take too much time to release it seems..
even i will not go for this mobile if the price is above 13k..
make.believe, 11 Sep 2012washim calm down..!!
lets do 1 thing as i suggested before...!! lets post this issue on sony ... moreyes, they are too much ignorant, irresponsive and outdated. i think they do not have proper knowledge about what they r saying.
i flooded them with lots of complaints over email and phone showing various proofs and still they were telling they know nothing about these models. just an hour ago, i compelled them to agree. then they were asking me to forgive them.
and i am also agree with u to go to sony india webpage and the facebook page to complaint.
Washim Chowdhury, 11 Sep 2012Yes, they are too much ignorant and irresponsive and outdated. These models were released at Sept 5in every aspect they are irresponsible and very lazy too.. if this goes on think how would be their after sale service/warranty services... OMG now i have the fear to go with sony or choose some other brand...
but why in GSMARENA it is still comming soon...??? even they didnt got any info abt the release...???
san.in, 11 Sep 2012Just today they added tipo models in the sony.co.in website.. even i checked yesterday and it ... moreso we will see miro in market in anthr week or so...but marked price by flipkart is too much..(14.5k)!! even if we can get miro around 14k in d market m nt gonna buy it for sure..(yeah i was waiting for 2.5 mnths)..will go for xperia u or xperia GO mostly..!!

@artofruin & @make.believe
Yes, u both r right!
Sony Xperia tipo & tipo dual has been released in India.
Now u can see the MRP price and specs here:
I am posting in details in next post, read that also.
What the hell with Sony India Support Centre an Flipkart.com!!!?
Flipkart still says expected release: 2nd wk of Sept even after its officially released and available everywhere.
And Sony India Support is worst ever support centre who does not have update of their own products even after release! They r in India for Sony products to release and serve but the worst ever thing that they r like street dogs who know nothing and only bite d customers with crazy and outdated comments.
I think those r not human in Sony India Suppor centre, their quality is lower than the street dogs!
Still today, they say they have no update! But I finally compelled them to say these r released and prices.

And it's no surprise that hvga screen res. is not a gud one for movie watching.
when the phone release in Indonesia, especially in Jayapura-Papua ?

world's 90% of videos are made using this ratio(16:9) these days.
having a handset(miro,tipo) which has a 3:2(aspect ratio) screen is not good for videos at all.

I think miro would be able to handle videos upto res of 800*480 since xperia tipo which is already reviewed by many websites has the same.but no hd playback for miro.
And yes the price seems steep.style has taken the place of performance in sony's new lineup i think(talking about both miro and j).
artofruin, 11 Sep 2012I think Sony has seen it's rivals are selling their handsets at a stupid price and got inspire... moreace plus n desire c both wr launched at 15.5k..arnd couple of months before..now ace plus is availabl arnd 14.8k n desire c arnd 12.5k as u said....desire c is a waste considering its CPU...but wat abt ACE PLUS? ace plus has bigger screen 3.7"..better cpu 1ghz..so i guess its more value for money dan miro...wat say..?!?!
n m lil confused over here..if they launch miro arnd 14.5k den wat wil J cost? 17-18? whoah...in dat price u will get sola wid better processr(Dual core)..n if they launch j arnd 16k who will by miro den if u r gettin larger screen n better cpu by spending jus 1.5k more...i think sony is messing wid their own devices here...!!
Ed007, 11 Sep 2012I agree with u.the software decoders in the third party players like mx/mobo can only provide ... moreBut in miro's white paper or in WEBpage, sony hasn't mentioned the word "HD".
not even for a single time.
so what to expect?
I've got a neoV earlier(720p feels like butter) and now it seems pretty hard to convince myself to having a handset that supports only 360p.
which costs huge as 14k :\
make.believe, 11 Sep 2012Hahahaha...SONY has made a big big joke wid us...i saw the price on flipkart yesterday night n... moreI think Sony has seen it's rivals are selling their handsets at a stupid price and got inspired from them.
few examples are - Samsung Galaxy ACE plus(15.5k) , HTC desire C (12.4k)
as compared to these both, MIRO's price is fair enough i guess.
