ceri, 16 Apr 2010Android would be a savior in the next month. But I still prefer OS form SE with touchscreen. I... moreI miss the UIQ too. They shouldn't drop this OS.
But there is one thing fishy I started to feel in my guts from couple of months now and those feelings hardly let me down in past.
I think (actually feel) that they are keeping UIQ alive using very limited resources and changing it, improving it to meet the current demands of usage on UI side.
Compare to regular Symbian, I think UIQ was much much better and stable, more likable and very flexible for its time. People cry out for multi-tasking and I still do multi-tasking on my OUTDATED P1 like it is nothing special. I do Opera 9.4 I think while having fun on irc, while still my ebuddy running behind. I am not too much a music guy but on times I put that on too while sketching some concept of logos on its "Note" app or just simply using Note to write down my stuffs while going back and forth with sms.
It never seems a big deal until now as I read all this "no need of multi tasking" type of things and Windows Phone 7 having no multi-task, and other OS showing how good their multi-task is.
They should bring UIQ back and I hope they are making it good under the deep covers just to bang everyone.
Dayum good SE. This news comes as soon i'm about to sell my W995 (Nobody has bought it yet though surprisingly) and Buy a N96 16GB.
Now i can buy a 16GB M2 instead and keep the SE. A Part of me Loves the W995 and i don't want to sell it.
SE is the best. Best phones i've had. W850 has been with me for 4 years and no problems at all. Used it to the limit still works.
I will buy a W960i soon though
Dave, 17 Apr 2010As much as im a Samsung fanboy I still do love sony. But by god I will still flame you apple f... moreLoooL Dave I love your honesty, and it's true Sony is so loved by millions of people around the globe. I mean this brand is a brand that no one can ignore at all, whether he is a lover or hater! Their styles, features, and uniqueness that they offer are very strong!
I'm looking forward to get a new Vaio E series laptop it's so brilliant! And looks damn good.
As much as im a Samsung fanboy I still do love sony. But by god I will still flame you apple fanboys! Die Apple Die
I have put in comments over past year that s/e are part of the mobile world that ive grown up but critisized the latest devices ie p990i etc...I am glad of the news it would not be same without s/e just get your fones out sooner and support them..
sharaku, 16 Apr 2010saw a vivaz yesterday.....reminded of the time when i bought a n93, and my friend got a k810, ... moreAgreed, the N93 was a great phone though. Optical Zoom on a phone man! Nokia were way ahead of the game in those days.
Cheerz Sony Ericsson team!
Good luck for future..
-- Your fan forever
My Webpage dedicated 2 u for years:
saw a vivaz yesterday.....reminded of the time when i bought a n93, and my friend got a k810, and despite the n series being in another league,(and good looking phones being so gay) i wanted the sony in some secret level...im a die hard nokia fan , but i want sony around...cause they used to make such beautiful phones that also upped the level of the game....man,, k810 was hot.good luck sony, survive and make nokia build some good looking phones once again, my hand hurts from carrying my n900 around.
i love my w995 bought last year. i had no doubt that SE is getting back to profit. when i upgrade to android this year i will check SE for sure.
Also don't forget that the X10 seems that it will have MT anyway, so it's getting more and more awesome :D
love you SE!
awesome, great to see that SE is finally back on the map. All their products have been pretty disappointing for a while (X10 was only mediocre compared to the nexus one and the desire)...hopefully they'll be able to catch up to HTC's top of the line products soon. I hate it when only one brand is dominating the market...reduces the number of choices I have when deciding to buy a new phone. That being said, hopefully SE will create a killer phone to go toe to toe with HTC's next line of products in the coming generations =).
Guys pls undertand there is something very important here. All the experts and analyzers were expecting for SE to keep losing but at least loss less. So if last year the loss was around 300m they were expecting that the loss this year will be around 100m so it really makes total sense. Because when your hurt badly you need to recover slowly correct? What SE did is a great achievement! Seriously I mean it.
the jump from a total loss that almost reached 300m to a profit of 21m is something huge! I really respect SE, and they make me believe in them more and more.
SE is not a weak company and I mentioned this before, that a brand like SE will never accept to lose easily! For god sakes it's SE's pride. They are not like other weak companies that live and die depending on the circumstances. This is the emerge of the most stylish brand SONY + Ericsson ( one of the leading companies in networks and communications)
IM REALLY keen to see Motorola's and LG's Results!!!
LG even though the third biggest manufacturer havent released anything amazing yet hmmm
We are pleased to see the positive impact of both the launch of new products and the business transformation programme improving the company's results," Sony Ericsson President Bert Nordberg said.
"It is clear that Motorola is in the midst of a transitional phase as it recreates itself as a smart-phone maker. The first quarter of sales for the Droid was fairly successful but the rest of the company’s offerings dragged down results."....Is this true?....
...GSMarena please post Motorola's First Quarter Financial Results
