despite what anyone may or may not think about SE, based on what i'm seeing coming out of MWC, i think SE has some of the best phones coming.
what i especially like is how more and more, they are releasing 3G USA phones, not just quad band.
i have a quad band only phone from samsung right now (B5702), real disappointment indoors. weak to no service.
i may sacrifice dual sim functionality for great coverage.
and it looks like i may even be turning away from my long time phone company samsung, too bad.
u go SE!!
SE change the OS to Android 2.1 and change the touchscreen to a capacitive instead of a resistive.
If this had Satio's 12.1MP camera, Android 2.1 & a capacitive touchscreen is would buy this hands down!
I DO hope so, too.
If they do, I will surely buy either the vivaz for everyday use or the x10/x10 mini . If not, I will stick to my beautiful red w995 and my iphone at home.

Sony should continue focusing on those features as well because when I see Sony, I see quality. They have the best sound chip out there but it seems they missed something (look at the Satio for example - a high-end phone but no sound EQ there!)
I just hope they will implement these important Sony geniune features (Clear Audio, Clear Stereo, Equalizer) in their final version of these high-end phones.
What I really cannot understand is: They have been achieveing the best walkman sound and the Clear Sudio and Clear Bass lately as their"flagship" for us music listeneres. SE has been the best for that use always.
This Vivaz looks beautiful-despite the resisitivie screen--the X10 looks terrific as a multimedia phone..but NO Equalizers, NO clear audio, no Clear bass???????
Prices in preorder in Germany go from 358e (Vivaz) to 565e (X10)
Will there be a MUSIC version of this babies?
I honestly see this a s a step behind in SE.
SE and their mobiles have always been my favourite.I do want to get a mini X10, or X10 or Vivaz but I do not want to regret it
Thanks for your comment, you all are very helpful
Terrific phone, but review says ringtones volume very soft. What is the point of a 600 $ phone if you cannot hear it ringing in your pocket ? I love LOUD phones so won't get this one
benny2billy, 11 Feb 2010can anyone tell can i use voip for this phone,example internet phone or has this has SIP settingYou can use VOIP by Fring on most of mobiles including Vivaz:-)
ham, 13 Feb 2010symbian is dead! SE please change to Android or WMIf you want WinMob buy Xperia X2 and if you want Android X10:-)
