It seems that this phone is out as an ultra high cost phone so that they can recover the development cost of their proprietry head phone cum charging port.
Cause this port will have minimal use : no music play back for lack of memory, no charging battery often for no TFT display or multimedia capability, camera, JAVA.
So people who uses their phone for show off only should buy it.
I find it so interresting how people insult items sometimes,(after they see the price tag) and USUALLY it is always those who cant afford it.
I'm not rich or upper class either but am definitely getting this!
Most of you who will soon see this phone will be full of envy, and add some insults to the gadget wich they could not afford!
Get a life!
This phone has the same specifications as the upcoming Nokia 1280, which will cost US $25. But the 1280 has a 3.5mm audio jack, and this SE does not have it. Therefore the 1280 is superior. Sony should concentrate to put 3.5mm audio jacks on their phones rather than wasting time on trying to compete against Vertu. By the way the 1280 is also the better looking phone of the two.
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2009It has a transparant display dude. Look at the photos. GSM arena only mention "greyscale displ... morei suggest u should post comment after reading the news http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericss on_xperia_pureness_specs_revealed-news-1241.php
Gsmarena clearly states that its display is transparent and it's the world 1st transparent phone.
the whole point of this phone is to look cool with it and prestige and expensive. its like the vertu phones. dont bag it out when its built for normal people to have. i agree whats the point in making it but still if they made it they must have people who will want it!
this phone USP is transparent display and it has Concierge, it won't be available for everyone one only for selected ppl in selected stores.
Ppl who are cribbing here are actually fools who think its for them but thats not the case, u guys can do not balls to buy this gem.
it's suck!!!perhap SE target the old folks rather than the young one due BIG keypad ..???what is happening my beloved SE.......
Why on on earth is this phone 800 USD????? What does it do? Is it made of some kind of super expensive material. For a phone that does nothing besides make call and text it sure cost alot and it does nothing. This is going to be an epic fail for sony. I spend alot on phones but they have features to match. This has nothing and is more expensive then the n900 and x10
no camera is.ok, but at least soner should put unlimited sms, call records and phonebook on its spec.
moozer, 09 Nov 2009i may be a bit of a geek when it comes to fones. but |THIS IS GREAT. This phone is amazing. it... moreEUR600.00??!! WTF are you talking about!! I'd rather buy Laptop, SLR and an MP3 player with that price instead of buying this none"SE"nse phone. Would you prefer carrying tons of gadgets than all in one device? You must be ashamed declaring yourself a GEEK of phones!! Nokia 3650 (2003) is way better than this.
oooo lipo battery.
obviously this is marketed toward the same people that will buy the motorola aura.
there will be people buying it.
No card slot memory,no camera,only 88mb internal memory
Xperia pureness its amazing.. unbelieveable..
15$ Or 16$ I will buy it
Another joke! I can't believe I'm seeing SE's downfall. I'm suspecting someone has drugged them all to do these suicidal projects! X2! X10! and now ladies and gentlemen: Pureness! All for some ridiculous prices, because in this aspect it's always SE!
Is it just me or is this phone not the ugliest thing on earth.
It looks like a Sagem £9.99 bad boy.
Sony Ericsson please try keep moving forward with the likes of the Satio not creatures like this.
