I don't think, SE lost the plot with this phone, it looks great and, as Android is hot, people might be very interested in an Android device with a reasonable price.
Don't forget, cameras and megapixels aren't that hot anymore, it's now all about apps.
Might try one of these , still have some doubts though, not about the OS, I like Android, just don't like "big brother" Google watching me.

For god sake, 320 x 480 is the oddest screen resolution ever (for an Android handset), meaning lots of apps will be incompatible, as a developer, I don't fancy farting around changing my apps so they work with 1 phone, its not worth the effort.
Bad stuff, only just noticed

f**k this, now the "xperia" feel is gone, once i could say xperia and everyone knew i had an highend expensive phone, now there are crappy xperia phones that will be sold to the masses.

they could name them something else that stod for value/cheap android phones. and let the xperia stand for the best that SE got.

IMHO this is going to be the new cheap phone for kids, the one you can get for £50 or on a £10 a month contract. Just you wait for a few months after release.

There is nothing wrong though with making Android affordable to the masses with a cheaper option which may do some good profits wise. I am sure they will still make the high end models. I don't mind the 3 meg camera just they could have at least put an led flash on it

They seem to be all doing it with some new Android devices. Samsung recently released an Android device with onlt a 3 meg camera & my LG Optimus Android phone also has a 3 meg camera. Is this a way of making them more afordable or what. Although I do say my camera is actually good



The Samsung Galaxy Spica : http://www.phonearena.com/htm[....]5700-Review-review-r_2310.html

there's going to be a war in the mid-range smartphone arena this year. In regions like Asia where prepaid users outnumber postpaid subscribers 9:1 price is going to be a major consideration. The Spica sells locally here at PHP 13,800.00 or around 243 euros but it's so in demand it's become hard to find.

If SE doesn't have good midrange Android phones, those Spica owners are going to upgrade to high end Samsung android phones (or LG , also popular). Whether Xperia was the right brand to do it in is an open question.

It does not seem to have Mediascape. Does it also have built in FM Radio or MW600 compensates for that?

Agree, however I do not agree with SE using the Xperia on any old copy and paste phone, I don't know why they can't crat a new model letter for the X8/X10mini.
