Arak, 20 Jan 2011Sony Ericsson tend to be somehow conservative in the harware side of things and I agree with t... moreno SE has partnership with qualcomm like HTC so SE can not use nvidia tegra 2
SE and HTC are waiting for next generation snapdragons.
from previews this is obvious that new snapdragon is faster than tegra 2
so HTC and SE will be the winner in dual core competition but samsung is making orion and we should wait to know that between orion and new snapdragon which one will be the winner
abhi, 20 Jan 2011I have always wanted Sony to get out of this partnership with Ericsson.
It's not working out ... moreyou are absolutely right ,
Sony shoud understand that Samsung is their major competitor in the electronic market and Samsung has succeeded to be the leader electronic compoany in the world due to fact that everything is done South Korea and all co operate in sharing technologies specially hardware
Sony contribution to sony ericsson was and still is harsh ,
if ever Sony ericsson fails and come out of the mobile market then the biggesdt loser would be Sony and not Ericsson
so Sony has too think twice again and consolidate its partnership with Sony Ericsson as a bigger contributer
And as of Ericsson , they are completely in different market now , and not directly linked to daily consumer electronic market that you buy on the shelves
hence Sony has to think more for sony ericsson than ericsson does
Arak, 20 Jan 2011Sony Ericsson tend to be somehow conservative in the harware side of things and I agree with t... moreI have always wanted Sony to get out of this partnership with Ericsson.
It's not working out at all...
Ericsson does nothing but complicate the things for Sony.
Due to SE being a joint venture, Sony's communication with SE is almost null. Sony hardly gives permission to use their technology in SE phones. Morover the headquarters, research facilities, manufacturing units, management of sony & se r located at diff. places making their communication with each other almost impossible. Even the engineers in SE r not the ones which work for Sony.
SE is working as a completely separate entity & getting nothing from sony.
If the mobile department had been 100% sony's part situated at their headquarters in Tokyo than sony's mobile phones would have been the top selling devices in the market due to latest tech implementations from sony & sony would have put much more money into it's mobile division without fearing abt any kind of loss.
Arak, 20 Jan 2011As a great sony ericsson fan , and as we speak I have almost 32 sony ericsson mobile phones in... moreHi.I have a 995 too and Ive owned 2 sony ericssons and Ill never change to another manufacterer again.I love my 995.Do you maybe know if Sony Ericsson are ever coming out with a new walkman phone?Coz all the Xperias and the Vivaz and the Satios look awesome, but I want a walkman phone.
Jesse, 20 Jan 2011This phone sounds awesome but when are Sony Ericsson coming out with a new walkman phone? : ( ... morethe W995 phone was the last phone that I could say was the best Sony ericsson Walkman phone for the following reasons
1- metal structure
3- 8 MP average camera
4- 3.5 mm jack + Sony ericsson fast port combines
5- flawless software
6- easy and fast to use
7- nice size and bottons configuration except the volume botton
8- two cameras front and back
9- rigid and durable design
10- Stereo Speakers and loud and clear too
11- so many bottons to start your walkman
12- wi fi thats works great
13 - simple menu and ful of normal easy features
14 can stand heat and cold , as i tried it in very Sweden winter and hot middle east humid summers
Jesse, 20 Jan 2011This phone sounds awesome but when are Sony Ericsson coming out with a new walkman phone? : ( ... moreas i can guess that sony ericsson dropped the Walkman and Cybershot logos from their phones , they used to pay high price to Sony to use these names on their phones .
last year some phones appear that carry the walkman features , but they never got the same attention as w995( i have 3 of this model)
it would have been better to have an AINO successor too , but that was dropped too .
as for the camera phones , i assume that all mobile companies have brought the 5 MP and 8 MP cameras as a standard for the phone industry , and hence if you want higher MP then you should go to compact cameras and DSLR camera
it would not be a bad idea for sony ericsson to produce special phones for their 10 birthday this year , such as special Cybershot camera phone , and a Walkman special edition phone
I wish that sony ericsson produces also a special edition of CYBERSHOT and WALKMAN phone under the same hood , and sell it as a limited edition for the 10 th anniversary that will be marked this year
abhi, 20 Jan 2011Well... , specs of galaxy s2 have leaked again.
From the specs galaxy s2 looks absolutely awe... moreSony Ericsson tend to be somehow conservative in the harware side of things and I agree with that
A true engieer will not through a product in the market just because it it new , i would suggest to be given some time for regorous testing an d commissioning.
as you can see now dual cores are emerging and LG already on the go for it , , this is a very smart move as marketing but not in terms of engineering ,
- so finally LG will be the test ground for this new technology , and now followed by Samsung in their Galaxy 2 in one month time .
- I think sony ericsson just want to wait and see how this chips will perform in these LG and Samsung devices and then will take the step to through a mobile in the market with such high spects
, dony forget that Sony ericsson cant risk its company due to small budget and low sales
This phone sounds awesome but when are Sony Ericsson coming out with a new walkman phone? : ( I have a 995 and Im waiting for a model with walkman features.
as we speak , there are new technologies today that will apear only on phones after a year or 2 years , and this is due to many many factors and mainly is the bettery size
- a manufacturer biggest challenge would be to make a harmonious device that marries the CPU , screen , battery and the Pllication under ine hood , and this takes lots of time of desin and testing
- so to get a product to the market is not only a magic that is done in a month or so
- plus there is tha marketing side of it , and this also influence the engeneers that are sitting behind the scenes trying to satisfy the marketing department as such .
please please we have to stop bashing and downgrading companies that we dony like
, all companies have contributed in this industry ina different way , its like AN EVOLUTION , one follow the other , , so each comppany completes the other , ,,, just assume that a world without sony ericsson , Nolia and i phone and we only have Samsung , then this markt will loose its hype and competitivness , and we shall end up by a monopoly and this will lead to slow down in technological advance of this mobile phones .
- so having all these leaders around will make your surprises and expectations to reach to its maximum every year
Well... , specs of galaxy s2 have leaked again.
From the specs galaxy s2 looks absolutely awesome.
But if SE wants to take advantage than they have the perfect opportunity to outsell galaxy s2.
From the leaks it's pretty clear what galaxy would offer, so SE has a great chance this time to create a device which outdoes galaxy s2.
This time SE will have a goal... > create a device which can kill galaxy s2's specs in every department.
let me tell you my simpl,e enginnering logic in all these new technologes
- in the engineering world things are different than in the consumer world ,
when a new technology emerges in the market , it would be a big mistake from a educated consuner to buy it immediately
- lets take all these mobile phone companies , all are in the dsame race in producing new mobile phones with advance technologies in a very short time , and they put these big marketing names , like (next generation , or reality , etc,,,) , in fact that all mobile companies try their phones by the consumers money , and all these traials are done in the field , ie Consumers hands
- if any mobile company requires truly to produce a mobile phone with todays technology , it requires at least 6 months to 1 year of rigid testing , but no one does
- they siply use your money and your time to do so
- so lets not boost so much about these new emerging technologies now and compare some numbers , we have to see tha final test in the field .
- we can come and judge a phone in real engineering terms only after a year usage by the consumers and there only er can say that this phone or that phone passed the real test .
- we have been drawn in some big numbers world , like MP counts , sceen sizes , processor speeds and battery sizes , but no in reality tend to go so far in real life use to measure all these in such details .
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2011I agree with abhi (the real one, from TL5H),
DUO is believed to be the final name for xperi... moreso we can finally say that sony ericsson flagship of this year is ARC only !!!
I was awaiting some surprize in February 2011 , but it seems that it wont happen
Arak, 20 Jan 2011does any one has any further info for NEO and DUO ?
ArakI agree with abhi (the real one, from TL5H),
DUO is believed to be the final name for xperia mini pro successor, but NEO is a bit confusing. There were so many codenames as posted by Mobilemaster, but only 4 names have been registered by Sony Ericsson's PR: XperiaPlay, Xperia arc, Xperia Neo and Xperia Duo. I guess Neo is the final name for Vivaz 2
Arak, 20 Jan 2011does any one has any further info for NEO and DUO ? regards ArakX10 mini pro's successor will be called Duo & probably hallon/Vivaz 2 will be called Neo.
As a great sony ericsson fan , and as we speak I have almost 32 sony ericsson mobile phones in my collection .
all these years with all sony ericsson ups and downs , still i am a true and loyal supporter for sony ericsson phones , and i can tabulate the reasons below
1- reliable phones
2- battery performance stays the same for at least 2 years
3- some nice and rare features are only available on sony ericsson phoes , like only having the list of callers to call you and block the rest
4- sony ericsson use quality components internaly that last long
5- nice colour and desigh mobiles
6- their proprierity (or so called Java phones) are superb , even my w995 , or Hazel can do better than some smart phones , I can put the wi fi on and still run 3 applications on the same time , such as SNAPTU , eBuddy and Virtual radio and the phone will never crash
7- the structure of the phones are rigid and can endure for at least 3 years and more
8- sony ericsson has so many nice accessories that are nice and easy to use , specially there external stereo speakers and blue tooth based accessories.
[deleted post]Thanks, we already have it, and 've been discussing about it...
And where've you been all this long?
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2011The screen is less than 4 in, at least 3.7 inches by comparing it with galaxy s display. It's ... moreYeah, the screen on Vivaz 2 performed much worse than the screen on Arc but it should be kept in mind that this phone is still many days away from being officially announced & much more away from being released.
I think that the screen's performance is not upto mark due to a completely pre release version.
Mobilemaster, 20 Jan 2011Hi! That is an Xperia device, with 8 MP camera. It looks nice! I think that it has a 3.5 inch... moreThe screen is less than 4 in, at least 3.7 inches by comparing it with galaxy s display. It's said that it uses BRAVIA engine just like Arc, but this one is seems having inferior display performance next to super amoled, in my opinion arc's screen performed much better than the so called vivaz 2
