Re: We know you have questions about the Xperia neo - We have answers!

We haven't said anything specific about market availability for the phone, no. So I don't have specifics on how it will be sold.

But, of course the phone can be USED on the network and access 3G.

Re: We know you have questions about the Xperia neo - We have answers!

hi, i'm thinking of joining the sony ericsson family, coming over from nokia! but i use video calling quite a bit to talk to my family when working away, my wife also has a nokia that we use for this. will the xperia neo be able to video call to a nokia or likewise? i.e over the air ( 3g ) i hope it isn't like the iphone's stupid wifi only service!  thanks for your help, pete

Just FYI, I tested this recently with Yahoo! chat (the neo on one end, PC on the other) and it worked well :smileyhappy:

Re: We know you have questions about the Xperia neo - We have answers!

if its the same as the Arc then it will be SE's keyboard but you can always install the regular gingerbread keyboard
