I just read elsewhere from SE that the 32Gb is internal storage also. It's just pretty confusing how they list 1-1.5Gb of Internal Storage, and then 32Gb of 'memory card slot' storage. They are both internal storage.
So, no removable storage. It also uses MicroSIM and has a non-removable battery.
Still, aside from these three things - looks like a pretty nice phone.
The specs from Sony say that it has a memory card slot - but it's not an SD card slot, it's an eMMC slot.
Seems like that slot only takes up to 32Gb cards though. Still seems like a lot of storage to me though..
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2012no microSD, no me. with all these high end multi-media features, the internal memory will be ... moreBye bye! If you don't like it don't buy and don't comment as no one cares a jot for your views! This is a Sony site so please go comment on the site of the phone/brand you do like!!
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2012micro sd card is use by most people. eMMC card is expensive and i think only fit sony products... moreI wish you people will learn to read first before making comments! This beauty has NO MEMORY CARD slot. 32gb of internal memory only and likely users will be given 50gb of cloud storage like all other high end Xperia phones.
Go troll elsewhere.........
A few things let it down:-
No card slot so it better have AT LEAST 32GB internal memory!
USB 2.0 NOT 3.0
Front camera 1.3MP NOT 2.0 MP
Ships with Gingerbread! Oh dear, will get ICS when? September probably.
I was exited for a while, really liked the look of it but will be out spec'd in weeks :-(
I believe this will be the best dual core phones once available in the market.
Its specs is way beyond the Iphone 4s.
Plus being a Sony Ericcson or now A Sony brand it is know for its durability, quality and performance.
Iphone 4s seems better because they have built voice reconization
But this phone has hd front camera
The phone sound like its the best smart phone out there but lets wait till it hits the market
these phone have a very good specification,and so beautiful design... and will compete iphone and samsung .... we hope that the price is not too high
[deleted post]Yes, there are some differences. The Xperia Ion is just for America, and that phone has a memory card slot, and this not. The Xperia Ion has a 1900 mAh of battery, and it has a bigger screen. You can compare both in this site. :)
To be honest i did not know MMC cards still existed..The last time i used MMC was in Nokias 6230i i think i know i used one in Nokias 3650..
Also they are thinking of scrapping sim cards in favour of EEPROM...This would make more room in the smartfone instead of building i the sim dolder which takes up a lot of roon this tiny chip is used instead...When you buy your fone the network activates the EEPROM with relevant info...I know this is what Apple wanted to do ij their iphone5 and other companys are considering this..
I want S/E more than anyone to make a comeback with Cybershot and Walkman in one device..I want then to use the "spatial stereo2 option used in their Ghetto Blasters to compete with Samsungs Concert Hall settings also..
Some one mentioned earlier about Satio using both LED and Xenon well we all want that ..The damn thing is its specs which sell phones..If someone come along and sees dual 2GHz proccessors,,2GB RAM and 20 MP camera with Turbo powered GPU and 200x4000 screen the fone will sell..If its got excellent battery and screen you can see in strong sun and high quality cam and audio it wont sell..
The trouble is the normobs go for high spec and what the sales man in the shop selld them at the time..Us geeks seee through the hype to see quality of specs..
micro sd card is use by most people. eMMC card is expensive and i think only fit sony products! another missteps by sony. they never learn.
For this cynosure, i am all in to get my hands on it. Cant wait longer.
Sony, has marked its presence obtrusively. I have been and continue to be an undying SE n now Sony fan.
