the phone is releasing on 15th august
and it will cost £349.99 (=around RS 25,000)
Ray's specs are impressive for a mid-to-high end phone and if the price is competitive I will definitely get one. Well done SE. As for Samsung Wave(it was mentioned earlier in this thread)I have to say that it's a great phone as well. Smart or not, it's one of the best deals you can get for less than 300$. And it's not a coincidence that it's ranked in the first five phones from the day it was released. I am not a Samsung fan-boy by the way....

Anonymous, 28 Jun 2011Stop believing the marketing BS. You DO NOT need a 16MP camera. In fact, 5MP is way more than ... moreyeah, it's all about the sensor. a very old nikon D50 5MP can still shoot better pictures than today's most compact cameras sporting over 12MPs
looks good, slim, light, small, good cpu, good screen, bravia, hd video - perfect

Samsung Wave, which is about the same, is only 200 euros now...
Wanted to buy Ray, but I guess i will keep my Wave until this one gets cheaper. Or will buy the Xperia mini which is nice too.

then, of course it's Android not Bada
and, also it has what promises to be a decent camera.
With any phone, if it doesn't have the specs you want you can get something else.
This phone is obviously aimed at someone who wants a good quality droid with a decent screen image and a reasonable feature set without having to lug around a huge 4 inch screen Behemoth.
hanesten, 26 Jun 2011does it support flash player ? coz i didnt c any in d specs ?Well the screen resolution and the operating system both conform to the requirements for Flash, so I reckon so.

As for upgrade potential, it's interesting to note that the Xperia X10 with its paltry 1gb / 384mb of ram is apparently getting Gingerbread without too much fuss, but, compare that story to the on / off / on saga of HTC Desire.
I suspect that there is a tiny bit of competence in Sony Ericsson's design stragegy and their Android skin is much less intrusive than the likes of HTC Sense which makes it easier for them to push out updates, even for their older phones.
