Here we go again! Announcing a product a year before it will be available! Just like Xperia missed deadlines, so will this model. Seriously; it may not be ready until next year! Furthermore, the long release times will give other companies the chance to release their own versions. SE now loses its advantage. Companies should release their phones no later than a month after announcing so that they can capture the market while it's hot.
As for the 12MP hype, it has definitely worked. Many are excited over what is essentially out of depth territory for a mobile phone. A well made 5MP module on a mobile is plenty. 12MP is dedicated camera territory. The high MP will only make the phone unstable.
There are so many other challenges to overcome in the mobile arena eg implementation of a reliable fast processor that positively impacts on computations such as browsing. Can one go to a website such as CNN; pick any video and play it full screen without having to wait 100 years for it to load up. Will the clip be played smoothly?
Does the device have a hardware QWERTY or are we stuck on posing with screen QWERTYs? Note that the world speed record for typing on a phone was done on an in-built QWERTY. It is quintessential hardware for a mini-computer but superfluous for a fashion accessory. Is this phone a mini-computer or a designer handbag? SE should get its priorities right!
Nice and fast phone :)

Anonymous, 17 Feb 2009Yeah it probs is better but im just sick of all the fan boys going OMG 12 mega pixel this must... moreYeah I agree...for a lot of people a phone is only good when it has a hi-megapixel camera, lots of memory and a great sound...that's all they're interested in.

dont worry guys, the 12MP sensor is more improved than ever, i saw a sample of pictures taken from 12MP sensor for mbile phone, its great...once you crop it its still great even you zoom it, also it is support with HD video recording....
If I don't trust this site i'd have said it is fake......
I am totally shock by this superb specifications, but really isn't a "12 mega pixel CAM" IS TOO MUCH
Whats d price of this instruments..
may be its costlier than Xperia..
if the cost is more than xperia than its not worth for spending..
12mp is overkill. It is starting to get silly. 8mp is plenty. I wish they would have made this an 8mp and kept it slimmer because even though this have a bulk at the lens... I must have it:)
In the video it looks like it has nice and smooth screen changes to. BIG big plus!
