Makes it official? I'd better say that SE teases us with the Xperia Play. It needs a press release to make it official, doesn't it? Although their last speaker accessory didn't have a press release.

I noticed on the ad it says 'Playstation Certified', I wonder what that means exactly. Will handsets need to be Playstation Certified to run the new Playstation games market store and associated games or is this just the closest thing could get Sony to allow in terms of calling a handset a Playstation phone?

I hope the xplay launches along side the arc. being identical hardware I am optimistic that it will.

Correction :
They will run best on the psphone aKa xperiaplay; but on others phone NOT PLAYSTATION CERTIFIED (most likely after hacks or maybe even without) they canNOT run

The Xperia Play is the first phone to be playstation certified but not the ONLY one, there will be many more devices from various manufacturers that will be playstation certified.

SE's strategy for MWC is beginning to look suspicious to me. For the last few editions of the event they have always had a spectacular device which begs the question what are they planning this year.

Their phones have been leaked already with one having been announced. The Xperia Play is 'unofficially' official and we know of only the Xperia Duo that is yet to be announced let alone leaked. They want to be a major player in Android and some of the competition has already announced some very good phones in hardware terms. Samsung and HTC are yet to reveal their high-ends and we all know they tend to be spectacular.

I get the feeling SE may have something huge next week. I mean what are the chances of them going into MWC with phones they've already leaked and announced knowing what the competition has or is likely to have? It doesn't make sense at all. I could be wrong but what if a 16mp, dual core, Android phone is about to be unleashed for release in Q2?

Satio is in dire need for a successor and this event is the best time for it IMO.

Rumor has it that Sony Ericsson is developing a smartphone with two cores and would be equipped with the Qualcomm processor maybe a dual-core chip (Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Dual-core Chipset), the codename of the new unit would be the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo Duo but it is still only speculation, rumors.

As per my post above I am now inclined to believe that the Xperia Duo is the dual core phone probably with the new 16mp module announced late last year by Sony. We are more than likely going to see this on Sunday for release in Q2.

Posted by goldenface
They'd be silly not to and Xperia Duo seems the logical name to call such a device.

I really hope they do blow us away with something that makes even the Xperia Arc seem like a battered old K750 by comparison.

The codename is confusing, combining Neo (Hallon) dan Duo (Mango?) in one new product.

Initially I thought the Duo stood for the two minis but then I started wondering why would they deviate from the term mini. What really makes me think the Duo is the dual core is their odd announcement of the Arc and their unveiling of the Play. It seems to me they are getting the interesting but not outstanding phones out the way to prepare for the real monster. I also recall that they are going to release four phones this quarter which makes the two minis, Arc, Play and Neo five instead of four.

Another interesting fact is the lack of leaks for the Duo.

Maybe I'm too much of a conspiracy theorist but something tells me this is their X1 or Satio announcement for this year.

Let's wait and see, shall we? You could be correct and I could be incorrect.

@tranced

It seems plausible that the Duo could refer to the dual cores isn't it?

Dont think DUO=Dual CORE.. Should be mini2 only.. I was really hoping NEO means something new but As mentioned by techradar NEO=vivaz2 so I guess duo means mini2...
It would be so cool if neo was some cool new device(hopefully not vivaz2) and duo for dual core.. Fingers crossed lets see what happene's ..

Well, at this point is hard to believe. is using touchscreen phones and I don't think that would happen.

This is just an advance tech.. But we should forget flip now.. These days its all about touch screen.. So flip days are over..

Posted by Ricke77
I would be very happy if you guys stopped calling those phones Vivaz2 and Satio successor. Satio and Vivaz was SE:s biggest mistake ever. Symbian S60 5th is the most crappy os I've ever used and so far away from SE quality as possible. Thank god they've cancelled the Symbian os.

I dont think anybody would be interested with dual touch screen.. 1 large 4 inch screen is more than enough.. Dual screen is complicated..i personally dont like it..
The trend is all abt large single touch screen..its easy to use,handle ,operate or do multi task..

I've had similar thought as Dups. Whats left to present at mwc when all phones have been leaked and reviewed, which I don't think is an accident. I'm sure SE can keep a secret if they really want to. SE themself have said that 2011 is a year when hardware is really important, so it feels kind of strange if Arc is their best offer, especially when you consider what's going to be announced by samsung and perhaps htc. The pessimist in me still thinks that there won't be anything more highend from SE than the Arc in H1.

SE can keep a secret if hey wanted to. Satio was a well kept secret wasn't it? And all the neo, arc leaks are deliberate controlled leaks. SE had said it'll make Android noise, they know what samsung, HTC are rumored to launch, they'll be fools not to have competitive device(s). Lets see what
13th brings, hopefully they do have a well kept secret to unravel.

Many on this board seem to crave dual-core processors in an SE phone. But take a look at Engadget's review of the LG 2x, seems the dual-core isn't helping with the UI at all. Buggy software too that's eating RAM. So I think it's too simple-minded to just look at the processor spec, it's the overall user experience that counts. If SE can execute with the Arc (i.e. availability, price, SW quality, support) then I think they'll have a winner.

Wow Wow a flipphone=keitai/big fail, clamshell aren't very popular by here, samsung already failed and in spite of understand that SE keep on doing silly thing I mean the LG touch slider and samsungs one were both failures but SE failed afterward with the Aino And keep in mind that SE is silly enough to think because dual core isn't supported enough, not to start with until it is usefull... remember.... android.
So I bet for a dualcore smartphone to be presented but launched 6 months later this is SE!!! together with this flip phone with pico projector.

I to believe that Arc could sell well. For me however, I will either go for the arc light, halon or a beast such as the sgs2, not something in between. I'll probably change when I see the arc in full flesh though. The thing about dual cores is perhaps not what you get now but in 1 year when dual cores is mainstream and apps and OS are really optimized for dual cores.

Hmm, what's Arc light ? You have some inside scoop ? Re dual-cores: Yes if the manufacturers will update their phones even after 1 year then your logic will make sense. But the track record so far from all of them (Samsung, HTC, Moto etc) isn't very good.

Posted by tyko
I just meant the vivaz 2 which has almost the same specs as arc and probably gonna be cheaper. As for the optimus 2x, the tegra 2 isn't to blame for bad software optimization. Thats LGs fault.

Posted by KU
Plus 2.4 is said to bring the dual core apps to single core or something like that. Still a flip phone would be a fail and late dual core won't be a big success.

The thing is that people want dualcore because it's possible. Not because they need it. That, unfortunatly, is how the world works.

and the 'advantage' had of releasing a 2.3 phone is slowly falling apart as 2.4 is now in the works

late as always miss the boat. like i've been saying all along these phones from should've been released last year or absolute latest this year jan/feb. think about about it, even the nexus s is at least on par if not superior to the arc as it is now.

Posted by sambouka
how can xperia arc be behind when 2.4 isn't even released yet?
should SE travel to the future to get the 2.4 source code?

Posted by tranced
I’ve seen articles around higher numbers than 2.3 being seen in the display of Xperia arc phones – As I have been informed that is due to a misconfiguration in some samples and nothing to get too excited about really, sorry.

The key points: Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo has 4 inch screen and 7 new phones will be released in the first half of this year...

I don't believe that Neo has a screen larger than 3,7-3,8 inches (from the comparison of the screens between Neo and Galaxy S I have measured that the diagonal of the screen is 3,7 inches). Furthermore 7 new phones ? From what we already know on Sunday we will be seeing Sony Erisccson XPERIA Arc, Play, Neo and probably a new Mini and Mini Pro. That makes us 5 new phones. As for a "real" flagship phone I don't think that Sony Ericsson will announce anything more high end than Arc as it will be a mistake to have many new phones at the same time competing each other in sales. My prediction is that when the new phones will be available in 2 months time we will have the first leaks of the new Sony Ericsson flagship that will have a dual core processor and will be available in Q3, probably mid July.

my point being arc will be released at the earliest april, which is when 2.4 is rumoured to be debut in a new phone. and BTW 2.3 has been out for a long while now, are you forgetting the nexus s? i know no other manufacturer is on it apart from hardcore google based phones but that is precisely my point, if wanted to use the 2.3 version as an advantage they should be releasing it latest jan/feb so it actually is something unique. by april, 2.4 would've been the advantage not 2.3.

Posted by Ricky D
@zub arc will be out before 2.4 is released and the only advantage 2.4 will have over 2.3 is support for dual-core apps on single core platforms, it'll still be gingerbread, and it's only rumoured to be released April earliest. I really don't know think you can say that arc's OS is going to be out of date by the time it's released. Other manufacturer's latest phones will be out around the same and only running 2.2, how far behind does that make them?


RE:DUO is dual-core?
I thought we already saw a few leaks of duo? it looked like a small Xperia phone, quite bland and there was a 'pro' version with a keyboard.

Posted by zub
That is true, but all I'm saying is if arc gets released and 2.4 is out or about to come out, it'll lose its edge on the whole 2.3 business. Just imo ofcourse .
