well about time , i think my k850i aint going to be very happy mind it looks like when this comes out that hes going to have to go into retirement lol .
looks a very polished handset with some nice specs to follow suite.
and please dont knock sony for there progress i mean lets be fair that the other offerings aint all that .
looking forward to it coming out now.
So, that's Hikaru? 2.6" QVGA + QVGA video recording? No thanks!
I used to be a Sony Ericson fan. Now, I am going to Samsung or another manufacturer until SE does what the fans want.
Bye SE .... FOREVER MAYBE !!
Looks great as usual as S E does but hopefuly that Batterie can makes the phone stand by for sometimes considerably long. Would like to have one for trial
Sony Ericsson had to release a better phone than the C905 which they rushed out to quick thinking they would show Nokia Up,but turned out a big mistake from them ,they better start releasing more reliable phones this year Sony Ericsson as they will trail Samsung an Nokia alot ,an Sony an Ericsson could end up spliting up
I hope the real design looks more interesting than that.
That looks like the most bland boring design ever. Shame as the specifications are outstanding...
kelly, 10 Feb 2009another java phone from sonyericsson,what a shame!its beta they manufacture what they r best knwn for.SE hav d best java phn til date and nokia buying d s60 its best they improve d java to match or beta the s60 in due time.well done SE.
By reading the comments, you definitely can see that many dont have a clue of what they are talking about..
As always from our friends at SE, a very very nice looking phone. SE and Apple are in a class of their own when it comes to design.
The specs aren't top of the line but I guess it's enough for a lot of people.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2009I thought it was a touchscreen from SE, but to my disappointment... at least they are sporting... moreActually no touchscreen is pretty gd ;o) phones shld b basic & easy 2 use as they can be... unless thr's a flawless Touchscreen UI, try-out version sucks...Xperia is a Good example dat sucks...
before SE made its mark on the mobile industry
>8GB internal memory
>Touch screen interface
>wifi and 3g
>Music centric fone
now there off it so the other companies envy this forte of SE and made plenty of touch phones for convenience i think...
but i still love the old good days of sliders and candy bars its simply and inelegantly cool...
dont you miss your keypads...
this hikaru thing is a great work of sony only if they had released it earlier...
i would suggest SE to make a X1 Walkman version + 8/16 GB internal memory, 8 MP cam at 30fps at highest resolution of 16m TFT screen and equipped with wifi, edge, 3g GPRS... isn't it interesting...
as for hikaru i really appreciate this phone Walkman 4.0 is to watch for... nothing beats the interface of a Walkman fone eye candy and very user friendly...
this are the contenders:
nokia express music?
SE= compete since you already death touch screens
samsung= touch and touch phones come on what else? copied s60?
LG= please be more interesting
nokia= price? design? s60 so long ago
iphone= come on what else can you do?
motorola= what happened you supposed to be the one that pioneered in good design and great features... your so so left behind
Hello_Kitty, 09 Feb 2009Is it better than my rusty old P1i?Hey P1i might be old but it's no way rusty! :)
Good job SE! BUT…!
This phone has everything from the top of the range mobile phone can have. Quality metal case, 8MP…. It is a very well done phone!
SE fans were saying that when Hikaru will came out it will blow away everything else. It is a shame on those fans because this phone is excellent but it will not blow away the newcomer phones like Hitachi, the new LG or even the iPhone in some aspects.
If this phone would have a touch screen with a flawless interface like the iPhone does, an ApStore and all what it has now… THAN it would blow everything away!
This way it is just a very good phone, top of its range.
God job SE! But nothing revolutionary.
