We have it we have it.. Here in Oman. Muscat City center, carfour. It cost 700.993$ USD. I think it is very expansive. They have both the black and white. It is amazing. I liked it.
UK mobile user, 08 Mar 2012Should be available tomorrow with O2 for £21.50 a month to begin with. Ridiculously cheap!yes but most likely with a £99 handset cost
It has already delivered from 3 in Denmark
But Sony has been too busy packing their phones so they forget to enclose TAGS

I think the reasons for this being weight and as for the screen i think sony didnt have enough time as they quickly wanted to release this phone, doesnt even have ics but from what i hear thats a good thing for now as the current ics is buggy and not all apps will run onit, this will soon all change and by which time i hope sony would have updated

Last year I said the war of the phones would be won on handset design - and if that were the case - Sony would win...
BUT WHAT DID MANUFACTURERS DECIDE TO DO THIS YEAR?!?
Literally take away functions from phones - essential ones - such as the Radio / Memory with the HTC One X (their flagship) and for Sony's flagship - take away external memory again!!
Had they kept the specs of last year AND given it a funky design, that would have been great, but taking away essential basics FOR NO GOOD REASON - is criminal and regressive...
On that basis, the two nicest looking phones (One X and Xperia S) are rendered useless based on the fact that the manufacturers took things away instead of continuously adding... I'd have easily bought an Xperia S if it weren't for the internal memory issue...
Why put a better screen and aluminium body on the Xperia P and not the S??!? Yet again we see not one great device with every feature you need as a flagship, but all these features split out into two handsets that as a result become 'average'... ARGH!
brian, 08 Mar 2012Getting my xperia s tomorrow.. Whoehoe!! (Holland)wooooow congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stylish... yes... but 32gb memory in reality = about 28gb? possibly a bit less? you throw in regular updates a few films (for your wonderful connectivity) games / hd recorded video and pictures and you're going to be running out super-fast...
As for buying unlocked in order to update... my point was people shouldn't have to - the phone should be able to stand the test of time, I bought a GS2 on contract last year - it's still outperforming devices like this and others released THIS YEAR... that is why Samsung (unfortunately, and I do mean it, their UI is terrible and their looks are boring as hell) - but all of that can be remedied by a launcher app and a funky case... what you can't update are the physical specs of an outdated phone... you're stuck with them for YEARS...
As ever in life... great legs, shame about the face...

this is something i think sony has picked up on and they hae only improved things you'll really notice such as camera and screen.
the main thing i now look out for on smartphones is the way they look, as they will all preform more or less the same plus minus a second or two.
also i hate apple lool, like the look of the phones but software tooooooooooooo constricting
I like this phone alot but the 24 month contracts which seem to be all that offered these days are a tad too long for me, however i have already pre ordered tis for for £25pm with 900 min and unlimited texts and 1gb internet. As i said befor i dont like 24 contracts but this offer seemed too good will probably have to buy a new phone by this time next year and try and get about 200 for the xperia s.
btw gsmarena I would really like a full review, as i can still cancle my order if a major fault appears
£370 on PAYG o_O? sim free versions seem to be going for£430-450... How much does it cost to unlock a phone from 3?

Because its free, the only way the carrier can make money out of you is to bond you with their services for 24months.
Wow...One of the Best Handset with One of The Best Network Provider...People will enjoy this phone with the All You Can Eat Data...Package..
Already ordered this phone, monday with 3 in Sweden. Will get it tomorrow, can't wait :D

A very original design.
And Sony updates are coming rapid since last year as fast as HTC's or Samsung's. With better multimedia connectivity and NFC communication.
At £370 pay as you go it is a steal.
A highly recommended buy.
