4.3" is way to big thats a small tablet the max for a phone should be 4" but 3.8" is the best size for a Phone.
If this comes of then am sure that SE will stop providing updates for xperia x10
i personally think this is taking the piss, anyone who has an X10i has waited nearly a year for 2.1 to update and now they have a new phone coming out with 2.1?
"is expected to be powered by the upcoming Android 2.1 a.k.a. Gingerbread."
The phone sounds excellent, but i have a feeling that SE will not announced until MWC 2011 and then wont release it until october 2011, by then it will be outdated. I really hope it will be released before Q2 2011

It's too big, and too much frame space.
3.7" screen is good enough for smartphone..well, just my opinion..
[deleted post]no i think they mean android 2.3 a.k.a gingerbread. coz 3.0 supposed to be honeycomb :)
This sucks! I just got my X10 updated to 2.1 and they now have this.
I really hope SE finally have learned, a new phone should have the latest OS, and that today meens Gingerbread. I hope they release a 4 inch, or smaller, phne with the rest of the specs the same, 4.3 is to big for my pocket and for my hand.
(I hope Nokia also will learn and abandon Symbian.)
Black, 10 Nov 20104.3 inches. Please stop this madness! 4 inches was big already. What kind of pockets do you th... moreMy HTC HD2 has 4.3 screen, but the phone is the same size a Xperia X10 and Samsung Galaxy, even though they have 4" screen. The reason is cause HD2 uses the front of the phone very well where i think 98% is the actual screen and nothing else. You could easily put a 4.3 screen on the existing Xperia X10 and Galaxy S if you utilize the front area better and not waste it on dead plastic.
