Was a die hard Sony Ericsson person and was not too sure if i would stay when Sony went it alone.... but i just might move on to them... i like what i see.
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2012i think sony makes it to compete with galaxy y. but, ICS on 800mhz cpu... laggy.Remember guys that there is more to a processor than its clock frequency.
An 800 MHz Cortex A5 (which I believe this uses) is probably the performance equivalent to a 1GHz scorpion. The Cortex A5 has more performance-per-clock and therefore is more power-efficient.
It is perfect at its price range. Don't compare this with big boys. It's competers are entry level droids
mario, 03 Jun 2012Ics does NOT need high speeds! I installed ics on a 2 year old x10 mini and was running very s... moreIf we can say so. Even on 2011 Xperias it isn't truly smooth. 4.0.4 is much better, but not as fast as gb and never will be.
This is launched to kill Samsung's galaxy monopoly ryt now. Good and wise move by Sony. Really appreciable :) But don know when Nokia will wake up :-??
if above specs can run ICS then LG should release ICS update for optimus net P690 with same specs........!!!
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2012design is just like samsung champ. But goodI think it's design are a mixed Xperia Sola and Galaxy Nexus
Adampalaboy, 03 Jun 2012seriously?? 2G?? Why sony doesnt place the 3G on this phone.. For some reason, Sony is being consistent to make android phones with at least HVGA (320x480) screen, even for cheap ones like this so they must cut everything else (Not that I know about the price, it's not out yet but let's presume this will be a low priced phone)

Harrier, 30 Apr 2012Nokia sells 500 with 1GHz, 5MP, 229ppi display (much better than this) for Rs. 9500.but without developer support xD forget symbian & nokia dude they are history.
ICS running HTC desire C has 600 MHz cpu. This Tipo (sorry) will be lightning fast next to desire C.
Ron, 02 Jun 2012I think this is the Xperia Go!!!!The name will be Xperia Tipo.
*Nope, it's not a typo*
