First SE messes up in updates big time, now they focus on staying up to date with software yet offer awful hardware. Seriously 300MB of internal memory? That's not even enough to the standard apps I usually have. And most apps don't move to SD card. Why don't they ever balance software and hardware just like hTC do.
No, I have a X10i and it's not better than this one.
This one has Gingerbread from start and a front facing camera, much stronger GPU in Adreno 205, the camera is the same megapixel but is has a sensor wich is improved alot.
And on top of that the price will come in at the same level as X10i for starters but will propably drop a little lateor on.
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2011wp7 not doing well with sales etc...android doesemm i think low price can stimulate wp7 sales just like some1 buy 'standar' phone with nice ui,
i mean wp7 ui has something different in it.
this is xperia neo.xperia neo has bean registreted by sony ericsson in december.this phone is known also as vivaz 2.neo means something new or revival of something old in this case revival of vivaz.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2011LOL but right now u can buy X10 for 320 euro . and i believe X10 is better than this Halon .Why do you consider that it is better than this??
Windows mobile is slowing every mobile! it's just WINDOWS!! ask the experts
LOL but right now u can buy X10 for 320 euro . and i believe X10 is better than this Halon .
i hope there is twin brother of this unit that run wp7, with the same price range €320-350
surely will boost up se sales.
what do you think guys?
cant wait.. love sony xperia... hope this will be an affordable phone..
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2011the specs are amazing considering its a mid ranger, and 320~ euros for this seems to be a grea... moreThe Arc is a high end because of a BIG, backlit screen, stylish exterior and classy finish.
It's made for a rich people who want a great looking, showoff phone.
But overall, i think this is a better phone.
3.7 inches works better for me with the same resolution and also the size-wise, the device is shorter and more compact.
Not to say it'll be cheaper than the Arc.
Front facing camera is a no matter to me.
One thing is for sure... !!!
This yr is gonna see pretty much awesome competition in smartphone segment.
Just take a look at the devices coming in 2011 -
From SE - Arc , play ,neo ,duo & some dual cores as SE confirmed recently & they even said that they have some interesting concept in mind for this yr.
From samsung the only mean machine would be galaxy s2 , nothing else.
From apple - the much anticipated iPhone 5.
From nokia - n9 (seems a great device) & even some dual core sets at the end of 2011
From HTC - qualcomm processors based dual core phones.
From LG - optimus 2x, optimus black & many other devices
From moto - atrix, bionic & some other phones.
From Blackberry - dual core smartphones.
I don't like samsung at all & i'm accepting that in front of everyone & the truth is that this yr samsung won't be able to sell even the half of galaxy smartphones it sold last yr.
The competition is so much hot this yr that samsung too will be lost in the crowd with it's only android flagship device for 2011 - galaxy s2.
Best of luck to every company except samsung.
how appropriate that they finaly named a cellphone after a gas that gobbles up oxygen!!!
this is what i called mobile, nice one has a front camera for videocall conference or some apps to use vcalls like fring!!!
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2011This absolutely Fake, just imagine how can they store android 2.3 in 300 mb internal memory, f... morex10 mini had only 256 rom and it runs 2.1
i don't know which phone you got but that rom you have on your phone is probably custom
This absolutely Fake, just imagine how can they store android 2.3 in 300 mb internal memory, for 2.1 itself the storage size is 550 MB!!!!!!!!
2.2 its even greater u must atleast have 2 gb of internal storage for 2.3 gingerbread
