migss, 07 Oct 2012when are going to be available in the philippines?This phone is 100% compatible with the LTE network from Smart Communications in the philippines. May require an unlock but if you can get this phone into the philippines it will work just fine with 4g.
Why only japan? I really want this! This is the most pocket friendly high end phone in the market that wil fit perfectly in my skinny jeans! Damn u sony!
Seems to be the best in their lineup for many years. And it will only be for the japan market? Well, i have a pretty good idea why sony loses billions every year.
Sony cant release it outside japan, because a company who has a patent on rectangle will surely sue them because it is rectangular.
@ Sony: Please release this phone global! It will beat the iphone 5.
Punisher, 30 Sep 2012Aniway if i buy it from ebay, would it work in Italy?s, It will work. U need to change to ur language.
Perhaps Samsung & HTC bribed Sony not to release it outside Japan.
Agha, 22 Sep 2012Please can any one tell me the unique feature of this phone i think its same the xpperia s
... morethe unique feature is the 1.5g dual core cpu. This is same as galaxy S3. This phone will be blazing fast.
in addition screen, battery, os, gpu, camera, etc are all top of the line. All this in a compact and light weight phone.
I think it's an NTT Docomo commissioned model, made by Sony with precise specifications requested by NTT. I guess in the future, if NTT allows it, Sony might release an identical or similar model worldwide. Or it might not :(
sony please !!!! make this phone worldwide . im 100% sure that if this phone will come out in japan it will hit the shelves :d
Sony why Japan Market only? Its such a great phone, we need it globally.
