[deleted post]Agreed....price it more than that and @Sony u will see it flop....
Waiting till 10th April....
I have a question about the notification light, if xperia p has it? i mean i been reading that some say it has and some say it does not have it. Can someone for sure clarify this and where you got this info. This is something that i must have and need to know before i preorder this phone.
i like this phone even though it has only 13gb of user usable storage and no sdcard slot (most would complain) u can use usb stick/pendrive using usb adapter no problem...
is this phone's gpu performance as good as sgs2? it has mali-400mp but sgs2 has mali-400mp4. are there a big difference between them?
Hey is it true that xperia sola will be priced at 19,900 inr n xperia p at 23,990 inr? N does anybody knw about the xperia olive_1 which is going to be launched in june? Plz inform

The S2s are also much wider and also taller.

I also see the RAM as important. For the Sola to only have 512 and not say 768 or more is going to become a bit of a constraint.
Floating point will start to become standard as ICS supports it means being stuck with the default browser until the solution is incorporated into other browsers under ICS. It only works for the browser and odd wallpaper gimmick they included.
My other issue with the Sola is that for a 3.7" deive it is a bit large but I find that about most 3.7" devices. The processor is very good for a 3.7" device though.
On the hardware side - with its STE U8500 cpu and DB8500 graphics it's actually a re-invented Samsung Galaxy S2 with a slightly higher resolution and a slightly lower clock speed.
Looks like the launcher and browser aren't hardware accelerated. A pity. Thanks to the ARM Mali 400 the native android game performance really nice, though.
The part below the transparent and led illuminated back, home and menu "button area" (touch sensitive as the screen) already feels a little bit wobbly but that's hopefully a problem of the prototype unit only and may not occur on the final hardware. That "tail" is also the reason the phone's case can't be opened and the battery cannot be removed*.
If I had to decide NOW on what to buy, I'd rather still buy a SGS2 or the HTC One S. I'm not sure if I want an even bigger phone such as the HTC One X or the SGS3.
* On a side note, believe me, you don't want to extend your memory using a sd card.
Tried that once with my SGS2. Put ANYTHING on the sd card and your phone slows down... because it has to scan another media storage, because the app drawer has to load an app's icon from the slowest storage available on earth (apart from tape memory). You will hate the lagging, take your sd card out again and put it somewhere you will never find it again. And you will stop using sd cards at all. Ever wondered why apple products don't use them? It has nothing to do with patents... nothing to do with them not being "hip"...
(I wanted to bring the point that you wouldn't add some telescope antennas to get a better signal, would you? But I'm not quite sure some of you wouldn't!) :-P

not the right place but what about the Neo V is better than the Sola?
This phone is the best of new xperia's because I don't like big phones BUT
It has 16GB only without card slot
older and cheaper xperia phones or even nokia and samasung phones is a lot better because it has card slot for expanding memory
I have 32GB card in my recently phone
also I don't like sola because Xperia neo is better and cheaper.
UzLG, 29 Mar 2012why battery capacity is VERY SMALL... because it runs on Novathor which is power efficient than Snapdragon. I don't know why Sony is reluctant to put the usual trend of 1700mah and say, "Hey, We have a Novathor on board which is very power efficient and hence you'll get a day more on the battery!!!". There might be some technical reasons why they reduced the capacity.

Rmx, 27 Mar 2012Hey wat will b d price difference between sola and p n whch 1 will be a better choice n pls sp... moreThere will be no big price difference between the two phones (Xperia P will cost a tad high). Seeing your requirements, I think Xperia P is the one for you. The 1GB RAM is necessary from now on and Xperia sola lacks it. The floating touch technology is no big deal and I personally is not a fan of the Xperia Sola's design language where as Xperia P is well built(aluminium unibody) and its spec sheet stands out with the 1GB RAM, 13GB User accessible memory, 8MP shooter, whitemagic display (it's really something that i find useful ; unlike the floating touch), front camera, etc. So If I were in your shoes I'd surely go with Xperia P. (Actually I'm waiting for the phone to arrive in the stores near me to buy one. I prefer the silver piece among the 3 colors). Hope it helped.
