Lets see what is going to launch in the next couple of months. See if Sony has launched a phone at this price and with these specs, the other companies are going to compete. I'll just buy the lumia 610 if the price goes down. The 3.7 inch screen and the high res is awesome. As far as the negative points go: I don't use bluetooth, apps are plenty now and what if the mass storage mode isn't there. I can install the zune software and store all I want. Plus the fluidity of WP is not there in even the best of the droids.

see bro at this price we will be getting msm7225a chip only . samsung will release galaxy y 2 which will have same specs as galaxy mini 2 , but if they release that then again it will be 8500 rs . see the price of mini 2 it is 230 $ so high and its not even launch in india. and if they try to cut cost they will give poor hardware just like they gave to old galaxy y at that time. the best option is Htc Explorer . sony has already released tipo and htc will never make any low end droid now, i dont trust lg. the differnce between tipo and xplorer is only battery life , internal memory and 200 mhz bump. if you root htc explorer you can install ics / jb cpu 800 mhz with good battery . or else wait for 6 months then in april may we will have dual core cpu in this price

Now onwards sony uses CTIA. so u can use of any CTIA supported earphones. I preffer u either sony's MH650c or MDR-EX60LP.
I'll just wait for the next budget ICS droid. I don't understand one thing. Why was this handset allowed at this SAR value? Forget about 4-5 countries, 1.6 is the limit as far as I know and that too is not so good. I just read an article and a researcher says that the limit should be lowered to 1. This is really an eye opener. I won't put my health on the line for getting ICS.
just checked the SAR value specified on the Sony website of UK and India. Both specify that the SAR value is 1.62 W/kg and the limit in some countries like the european union, brazil, new zealand etc is 2W/kg. Just search for effects of high SAR value and you'll know what to do. This is shocker. Earlier I thought that flipkart made a mistake.

Anonymous, 13 Sep 2012DESIRE C is better!??? where are you dude?? even gsmarena said that desire c is laggy with 600... moresorry for late replied,why i said desire c is better?once again i'm not boring to said that kernel is really influence in desire c performance look at them,they can run ics fluidly even with ics 4.0.3 that well known as most bugly ics version,and they surely too to get jb rather than lww+xperia 2011 where sony still investigate where between them capable to be update,and Sony never surely promised to update lww on jb,neo l is 4inch dude,actually you must wakeup from ur sleep,neo l,tipo,and miro I think will surely get jb becoz they have newer kernel than lww,i suggest you to respect the other who had comment previously,if u still think processor is everything to define a performance from smartphone,i think you can be include as quadcore fanboy that their phone lose with dualcore phone,example xperia t vs gal.s3
@rish since old time ago :-D,even sony or SE put 3,5mm jack,they cant use other headset from other vendor like nokia,htc,samsung,and etc,but they can used headset from other earphone manufacture like senheiser,philip and etc,if u want to heard maximal music experience from tipo,used their factory headset that bring together by the box of tipo (mh410c)or you can buy the others like hpm70,hpm77,mh650,etc
Walkman is only factory strategy name dude,lww earphone quality still below xperia 2012 middle like sola,u,p,s that have clearbass,vpt,and etc,i think headset quality of tipo not far different than lww becoz sony only focus on its speaker not for lww headset quality
on some other site which has phone before arena says its SAR value is 1.27 overall..!!
u guys must hav guessed d site cannot type d full name i says SPAM PROTECTION..!! :D ;)
Ashish, 13 Sep 2012guys i want a phone for heavy browing and for hd games,but should be mid range.should i go for tipo?sony ericsson live wiyh walkman is best mid range phone

Lww is in league of its own in music i know . Bro have you really listened to the sound in tipo with sony headphones . I guess not . Because on sony support forum owners of lww have posted that sony tipo sucks in terms of earphone quality. Also SAR value is mentioned on uk tipo pdf as 1.62w/kg. Your honest review will be appreciated .
