Got no problem with the spec cause I'm a non hardcore user, but the design its like one device sitting on top of the other
And the battery capacity too which is a bit worrying, even the ray got 1500
Floating touch is nice and the specs are great too
But the design (from the side) its like one device sitting on top of the other, which is a turn off for me :[

The hardware just need to run both types of matrix detection. Sony have just bought out the first device to support it (hardware wise) and written the functionality into their browser.

Rmx, 27 Mar 2012Hey if der is no ffc hw cn u enjoy google talk wid video as promised? Plz wanna knw rply fastWhere did you hear Sony promised you to enjoy gtalk video chat with this phone? This is not the first time Sony releasing a phone which supports video call without front camera. It is you to decide whether you accept or not to go chat using the main camera (take a mirror and go). If not, then get another model pls. Android ICS also supports face detection and unlocking, without front camera these features can not be provided by the phone. But doesn't mean you will miss the essence of ICS.

Bilou, 25 Mar 2012Cannot see 2 speakerphones...where are they and why not using them for music playback too ?What about the smaller grill on this photo - at the bottom-right.. is that the other speaker or just the lanyard hole http://img.gadgetian.com/Sony-...ackside1.jpg
And also there are 4 dots on the top right shown on this picture: http://www.mobil.hr/slike/big/...a_sola_1.png
from left to right I guess they're the light sensor, notification led and 2 proximity sensors. No ff camera for sure.
To answer my own question below ... you will only be able to use floating touch in the supplied browser in Android 2.3. ICS allows developers to utilise floating touch and build functionality into their browsers (may be slow to happen unless more hardware is about).
A shame the demo's do not include hover over popups.
Really good article on how it all works:
There are a bunch of articles referring to this as a full browser experience but that is wrong as there is no 'full drag' and as far as I know ICS does not properly support it either.
