...here in Dominican Republic.

I think it will take the X8 off the map. I still can't understand why Orange started selling the X8 this year. Hope they get it off as soon as this comes out.

Looks very nice IMO, and very well specced, i agree with Lightspeed, if priced correctly it will sell very well, its reminding me of the days of the W800/810, great specs in a nice simple package that can hold its own even next to the high ends.

I quite like this for the market it is intended. It is actually a very decent phone for the youth market.
It's not what you do or even how you do it but in what state of mind you do it: Dups! 2009

The design is great. The social media integration and sharing is what's important for this phone, the social media savvy will love this. Price, as always, will be an important factor.

Plus, it does have HD (720p) recording and if the camera is anything like the one on the Play then there shouldn't be any complaints there either, and they had the good sense to include AF in the camera.

Would this type of Walkman device sell well with youngsters?? Is that the target market?? It's a funky little number and with decent specs and having the Walkman brand and decent price yes it should sell well. Lets hope it does have the Walkman trade mark sound. This handset is reminding me of the w900 which I had in white years back.
Phone?? What phone??

I updated my Play to include the X-loud and boy you can really notice the difference on the external stereo speakers - the phone rings so loud it's almost embarrassing.

Worried about the Price

About the same if not slightly less. Starting at about 200 € market price, rrp in Germany is 229 €.

Yeah it works but it's hardly innovation its just boosting volume. Can call it a volume button. And means more teens on busses playing rap music loud

You can't be expecting innovation in a low end device like this, but this will be great value for money when compared to competitors such as the Wildfire S, Nokia C6-01, BB9300, Galaxy Ace etc...

Actually it's better than all them with 1gig processor and HD video at the price. I think my Mini Pro is excellent value for money.

Yep, it is indeed better than all of them, SE must just work on their marketing now.

Yep, Xperia Mini Pro is great value for money, the CPU it uses is the same one found in the DesireHD, Arc, Galaxy S Plus, and Incredible S, SE must have struck quite a deal with Qualcomm as most other manufacturers use that chip in their mid ends not low ends.

They probably bought it in massive bulk since all the 2011 Xperias so far use it. If this is a signal of what's to come in the future, just imagine if SE used dual-core across the entire line.
