i think this gonna cost millions . i'd better buy SE Aino for better music and more fun
1. Does it have separate GPU?
2. What is the availability of the custom ROMs for SE?
MIckwa, 10 Jun 2011We need android 4.3 for video calls.Well of all the rooting ,custom roms etc ive used i have never heard of Android 4.3..!!!
This is miles better than Arc,,its got qwerty and second camera for video calls..This fone is more fone size with nicer 3.7 inch screen. Its got all the features of the Arc.Come on s/e get this fone out ,,you have 20 days left..

Thank you for contacting the Sony Ericsson support center.
With reference to your mail, we appreciate your interest in Sony Ericsson products.We would like to inform you that as per the handset specification Xperia pro is having a video call facility."
I do sound like i am moaning but at least i applaud these manufacturers for still bringing out real button smartfones.Thanks for that..
I AM BUTTON FAN and hate pure touchscreen..At this moment i am considering s/e xperia pro,,BB 9900 or Nokia E6 ..Now by the time these smartfones arrive they will be outdated..
The xperia range is already a generation behind in proccessors and yet the Neo and xperia pro are nowhere to be seen..For crying out loud companys get these smarfones out before they are dead in the water.
I still think he s/e p900/p910 was the ultimate gadget fone,,it had 5 way jog dial,,flip away T9 keypad ,,stylus input or take the keypad off for pure touch..Bring it out again with todays spec and 2000mA battery lying length off fone like original p900/p910. They should call it the P900 TURBO and have turbo written sportily allover the back battery cover. :-)
Nobody is surprised – SE is late again… they really have a stupid strategy treating the customers like idiots.
By delaying lyk this. Se should be adding features that people want on the phone .that it doesnt hv. If not then whats costing the delay
Plz SE dont release the phone this year, just assign a release date so we can decide what can we do!!!
deepak, 07 Jun 2011This phone doesn't support video calling (infact no xperia variant does) then why videocalling... moreThe official specifications page and overview (www.sonyericsson.com) never mentioned about videocall capability, only says: secondary camera for video chat - that requires to use a same app for both dialer and the other end's devices such as fring. Natively android os doesn't support 3G video-call option (via phone number)
till will be now realsed in june end globallya nd with 2.3.3 and facebook integration :D
Bad news guys! According to the OFFICIAL Sony Ericsson UK site, it is now available LATE July!
I'm not waiting any longer, Sony have lost me. Think I will go with the SGSII.
Xperia pro does support video calling (and has a front facing camera) but it does not come with a pre-loaded client for this.
So, if you find an app that supports video calling for Android phones it should work fine.
