It has been like flogging a dead horse...
But if sony is making so many models why not make one exceptional phone.
What about the LT30, is that the phone that we have been waiting, or at least what this poll was supposed to be.
I want Android JB it is friggin awesome. I am going to buy the first JB device that comes out.
Anybody has any details on this phone.

well, i dont know what to say, but it was expected all along. no the LT30 is not what we are expecting as that phone should have been what we wanted 5 months ago....
Whatever we wanted now needs to be tweaked. i believe the key elements are as follows:
1 - contract with AT&T usa and other in different countries as soon as possible... if samsung can do it so can SONY. i think thats key element to bring it to the US...
2 - why cant they contract with the competing brands such as tmobile? make that extra frequincy is it that difficult?
3 - GALAXY III is ugly but the 4 processor is a major reason why 9 million pre ordered the phone world wide, ok i understand that SONY does mass produce rubbish, but the GALAXY III is a seiuose contender and is not rubbish. just make the freaking fphone sell millions and start making money.
4 - this rediculas amount of phones that are hitting the market from SONY is just stupid. The xperia S could have had the better chip, had a dock and had water proof ability. 6 months later you can market a different color with a cooler package that would have saved you money...
5 - dont get me started on the delays in the updates and the delays in releasing the product.
6 - SOM POEPLE AT SONY STILL NEED TO BE FIRED OR HAVE A MEETING WITH FANS
