to keep it in persepctive though...Q3 still kinda means Q4 cause SE has a tendency(at least from what ive noticed of late) to release phones at the end of the quarter they are designated for and not the beginning. so least this means aug-sept instead of dec-feb :P
Q3? Hmm, when I talked to them via phone I got Q4? But that was a few weeks ago. Great news if it is true.
Dude this is the best phone I have ever seen. I have a Nokia N73 but I have always been an SE fan, and after seeing this, my love for SE doubled. Don't just judge a book by it's cover and say that the D-Pad is a bad one, but in mobileburn.com it is said that the D-Pad of the phone is very easy to use. The 5-MP camera is a killer feature and the one I've always wanted to prove that SE can match Nokia. The only bad thing I see about the phone is that it is very thick.
I will write the REVIEW of the phone after I buy the phone on the day of the launch.BYE.
Its really rare for them to push it up...usually its back but im not complaining...THANK YOU SE!!! :)

Hows the k850 video quality? Does it record in 3gp 0r mp4? Will the quality be good as the n70 and n73?
hey bogdan they don't put all the infos because when you have a UMTS compatible phone everyone (almost?) knows that you can have tv and video calls as for messenger you can have it on any recent (and decent) phone..
Nokia comes in different shape&sizes but for sony it comes d same that i dislike most about it.I uses W810i but all the same,am still in love with nokia phone.
Why not make a straigt comment about this so called sony phones,am using w810i sony ericsson, but all the same i still love nokia phones.One thing I DISLIKE ABOUT SONY ERICSSON IS DAT IT COMES SAME WAY NO CHANGES.
i doubt very much it is availiable anywhere! its only just been announced!
im am going to withold and further comments on this till its out! cause all these people saying its better than this, that and the other seem to think that they already have one to comment on. i dont see how you can say that unless your are a developer @ SE???
why gsmarena dosent put all information and specifications about K850, like TV and messenger etc.......
When will they supply south africa with this time bomb because we need it a.s.a.p meaning no more joystick please 'PROBLEMS WITH A CAPITAL P'What we need are phones like the w960 and k850i
I think this fonet, the caeras gr8 too. Sony ericson is way aheah in terms of features but i hav found them to be a pain to use. plus they hav a thing for reeli naff buttons, they look painful to press!
I second that Jacob. I have worked in the mobile telecommunications industry (sales aspect) for the last 2.5 years. Over this time, SE has definately proved to be the most reliable phone. Don't get me wrong, some SE phones still stuff up, go DOA, etc etc, but overall they tend to be much better than all others. Nokia is still second to SE.
I work in a big phone company, been working there for almost 3 years now and I have to say SE is by far the best brand. Nearly everyone in my company uses a SE.
Sure about 2 years ago Nokia would beat SE in quality but things have changed. Did you know last year Nokia was the worst brand in terms for repairs and DOA's in Australia?
Hats off to SE again for making another great CAMERA phone and not a phone with everything in it including bugs.
