about the sar value

well, i havent bought the phone. but am planning to after seeing one of my friends'. its a charm if its your first android. regarding the sar value, the value of 1.62 is averaged over 10g and the higher limit for that is 2 w/kg (as per european union rules) you may check out wikipedia. sony should have clarified this issue to prevent many customers drawing back to what is potentially a killer at the sub 10k android market. i am posting the link to the sony site which confirms the sar value and the averaged over 10g feature.

I mean, almost the whole world has been using cellphones for years and years now, i had my first handheld cellphone 19 years ago, why are we not als dead long ago, where are all these cancer victims???

ONE is not much but the radiation scientists cannot show us even ONE victim.

If i lived in India i would be upset that my hard earned tax money was spent on this stupid research.

> In reply to [deleted post]By the way, if you can buy one, please post some reviews. Especially about its performance and touch screen. I wan't a super sensitive touch screen. Just like my good old Samsung Wave 525 (around 5k when I bought it). Also about it's browser. Whether it can view videos online aside from youtube.

FCCs testing is more reliable than any other test.

guys dont worry about SAR value of tipo atleast in India...
our government officials have themselves tested the little tipo and approved it to be launched in India... here is a part of their report

"Sony xperia tipo regulatory approval.
FCC approved on 15 aug 2012, FCC ID value: PY7PM-0131
FCC measured SAR
Head: 1.28W/kg,
Body: 0.55W/kg,
Product Specific Use: 1.27W/kg"

NOO..dont dey hav other fones to manufacture...d values r diffrent cause d standard method of testing is different for different regions.!! USA has 1.62 as a limit cause it is d maximum permissibl limit according to their method of testing...euro zone has limit of 2 cuz its maximum limit according to their testing method..!!! its ot like US council cares more for their ppl n european council dsnt care dat much dats y dey allowed till 2w/kg..!! its jus like in some countries dey measure liquid in ml..litres in some countries dey use ounces n gallons as a unit..!! it depends on country specific standards..!! n according to my knowledge tipo's SAr value is well below d permissible limit..! i jus dnt want u to get scared n make ppl scare..!! n its sony not micromax or any local company to make devices wid high SAR values..!!
