different markets different release dates, but I would take that with a grain of salt as there's no official release date anywhere in the world so far.

a bit yeah, since I've read the thread above, I may no longer pursue V, Now that I have proof that Sony phones are indeed disposable phones, I think I won't get my money's worth. I am not completely turning my back to Sony, I just wanted them to prove to their customers why we should continue buying their phones.
Here I am again ranting LOL

I got excited with the Xperia V's specs as well, but I was really hoping that it would have a screen almost synonymous to Xperia T or larger. I can't understand why Sony Mobile won't make a smartphone that has it all. They are calling Xperia T the flagship, but it does not have ClearAudio, ClearPhase, sensor-on-lens, HDR, etc., which the V has. I know they are trying to cater to consumers from low to high brackets but flagships should be understandably expensive. If people really wants to go for it because it has the topnotch specs, then they would buy it no matter how expensive it is. I hope we can get a better understanding of the marketing strategy of Sony. Right now, all I can think of is that the marketing department of the company is being paid by Apple -- their goal is to turn people away from Sony.
I am quite happy with my Xperia S for now, but I am so ready to replace it with Sony's next real flagship, if it ever comes. I'm guessing another flagship is due out on March (a year after the S has been launched), so I'm gonna wait for whatever Sony has under their sleeves because I'm still yet to be impressed despite the wave of new phones coming out. I'll just keep enjoying my Xperia S and Xperia Tablet S (which will arrive in a week's time) until the next REAL innovation comes out.

I'm ok with the specs of Xperia V. However, I've been thinking that Sony will definitely release a quadcore phone, with great specs, remove the image compession (i hope) and a great design. The question there is when? And will they be able to fix the issues their consumers are encountering when updating their OS?

Hopefully this device reaches us here in the Philippines, we're already have an LTE services here, newly offered by Smart and Globe, but its freakingly expensive contract... , I'm hoping it would be an open sim and not an absolute contract with the local carriers, just like what they did on Sony Experia Ion which is also an LTE device but it was offer here in the Philippines (open-sim) , i'm pretty excited

Yes, and as I mentioned on my reply on another post, CES is just a few weeks away from happening, and we are most likely to get wind of the 2013 lineup anytime soon. I guess the Xperia V's lead time over the next flagship is just too short for this amazing phone to be on the spotlight long enough.
