I have been a Sony Ericsson phone user for years, because I love their music and sound quality above anything else. But I must admit that in recent years Sony Ericcson has fallen behind in the race for mobile phones, and it's a shame. They were slow on the touchscreen bandwagon, and to top it off, though the Xperia was a good but flawed phone, they released it 6-12 months too late, which enabled the competitors to bring out more up-to-date products which made the Xperia primitive once it was released. This same issue is going to be had with this phone, it's a great phone, but with how slowly the release the phone by the time it comes out, it will be old news and better phones will be released.
I would love to purchase this phone, but I just don't think it's worth waiting for because by that time there will be a much better phone on the market, maybe the Xperia 2?

i like this gadget.. but just 1 thing what about its sound quality as nutthin is mentioned? i heard in review videos it has walkman features but no sense me feature, m sayin this cause i dont see what will it sound like just frm inside the earphones, outside speakers should be better than omina hd too. omnia hd has - DNSe 2.0 (Digital Natural Sound Engine), Virtual 5.1 channel Dolby surround. mostly every speacs r written better than idou.. i've been buying sony previously bfore i bought htc diamond hd... but m jst confused wid dese two now lol
nick, 31 May 2009if you really think that which is unfair, then you can turn the video recording down on the om... morenick, your right that what samsung has done with hd, is something nice. But if i buy a phone for hd video, i want proper hd video, not to record in lower resolution.
As for what se has done something revoloutionary? Do you remember how phones were, before the launch of w800i and k750i?
The whole stress on multimedia and camera, was brought on by cybershot and walkman phones from SE(followed by nokia's n series).
However Samsung is doing very good now, considering how it was couple of years back.
Both omnia hd and satio are great phones. But I will prefer satio over hd.
nick, 31 May 2009if you really think that which is unfair, then you can turn the video recording down on the om... moremaking an mp3 phn was revolutionary and coming up with d highest mpx count is revolutionary too.so, shut your yap.
Good, at least we established that Sony is the best – FACT :)))
You should write that down nick, because obviously you have a lot more to learn than you think !
Will it be available sim-free immediately on its release date, or will some network get a stupid exclusivity deal? Cos I'm wanting this ASAP Sim-free!
This phone would be amazing BUT RIGHT NOW, not in 4-5 months, what is SE problem...waiting too long for their phones to be available!!!
I want this phone now...:(
an se fan, 31 May 2009if u want all in one purchase a vaio or entertainment-unlimited ;)I wonder why some specs r missing ?!?!
Mates... if you are into video recording, buy a Sony Handycam. If you are into photography, buy a Sony Alpha. If you are into Music, buy a Sony Walkman. If you are into games, buy a Sony Playstation. If you are into watching movies, buy a Sony Bravia. If you are into watching movies in big screen, buy a Sony LCD projector. But if you are into phones, buy a Sony-Ericsson. Sony has everything to offer.
