all of you debating about JB just look here. the version number of a software is in the form of 4 numbers a.b.c.d. the numbers in order are called major, minor, build and revision. The update from android 2.x to 4.x is a major update. The first number changes. The update from 4.0.x to 4.1.x or from ICS to JB is a minor update. The last two numbers are not important, they matter only to us engineers. So theoretically, any device supporting 4.0 will support 4.1 if the company gives that update to that phone. So tipo will support JB. Its up to Sony to give it that update. As far the old kernel of lww is concerned, I'm not too sure about it.

IE9 is one of the best browsers on mobile devices and even gsmarena says that. end of discussion.

People who are commenting about SAR values clearly don't understand what it is or how it works. Please read this: http://www.fcc.gov/guides/spec...it-means-you

hi angel007 please reply regarding sound quality in earphones. as i told earlier i took my high quality headphones with me to check out the music quality in earphones in a sony store . i found out that the sound is very very low in earphones. if i were in a crowded place i am sure i wouldn't have heard it. so please tell us how do you find the sound quality in earphones ?

just saw a new unboxing video. the internal storage is 2.15 GB and for apps it is 754 MB out of which 608 MB is free. So don't think you have the whole 2GB+ storage space for your apps. For apps it is just 608 MB which is actually more than enough to install many apps. If you want you watch it for yourself on youtube.

> In reply to rish- @ 2012-09-14 11:37 from rKeF - click to readyes this is the problem with wp. apps can only be downloaded on the phone and not on the pc. BTW WP has also been unlocked and there are soft wares for the same but unlike android there are not many apps available for downloading to the pc. in Android u can download even paid apps from various websites and use them on your phone.

Well the only thing that puts me off against windows phone is that we cant get hacked paid apps. In android we can easily get a very good paid app like security apps, utility apps , hd games for free . But in wp we have to purchase it even a small game like angrY birds.

bought this phone last week and i think its quite slow it plays games ok but the time it takes from pressing write text or contacts takes a good few seconds sometimes, and ics is complete crap, no background data turn off so i keep getting facebook notifications when i dont want them, and camera aint too good, I should of bought huawei G300 instead for same price!

> In reply to rish- @ 2012-09-14 10:31 from Lf3D - click to readas far as droids are concerned Sony and htc are the most reliable companies. As far as the 710 is concerned, its awesome but if I would have had the money for it then why would I be commenting here. The 610 is a good phone for apps too. Around 5% of the apps don't work but that is okay. I'm not a mobile gamer. The PC is the best thing to play games on. This phone is the best in this price bracket but the sar value is a kind of a deal breaker. I might think about it if I don't get any good news in the next couple of months about a new droid. I was looking to buy it on dhanteras so I can wait for a couple of months. Frankly speaking there isn't any phone in this range which is even half as good. The Explorer is not that good and the desire c is a joke.
