Well i sent a mail to the local support team 3 months ago. Never got a reply. I check my spam mail folder every week so i know that i definitely didn't receive any reply. If I call them i get the response that they don't have this information, etc. So who exactly knows which products are being launched in India and which aren't?? This page has got over 10000 hits and this is just a forum discussion. So obviously there is a great demand for Xperia V in India. Why does Sony treat the Indian market differently? And if you aren't gonna launch a product atleast mention that in your blog or forum replies or preferably on the International website. Well the consumers deserve atleast that courtesy. Sony Ericsson was the second most sold phone brand in India 7 years back (heard that on NDTV's Gadget Guru or Cell Guru). 7 years of poor customer support later here we are! A lot of people, including me, waited months for the release of Xperia Acro S and were finally left disappointed, irritated, frustated, angry, pis*ed off!! and now again the same happens with Xperia V. And Indian Sony mobile fans like myself have expressed their disappointment on social networking sites and now here.. I don't understand how does Sony decide to launch Xperia Ion in India, which although a great looking phone, was too late to arrive in India and so was completely overpriced and at the same time Sony didn't launch Xperia Acro S in India.. It would have sold 20 times better than Xperia Ion any given day. The only water resistant Xperia phone in India currently is Xperia Go with an HVGA display at Rs. 18k !!! Are u freaking kidding me? A Motorola Defy XT costing less than 13k has a FWVGA display!!! That is 3 times the resolution of Xperia Go. Sure the performance specs differ but i 'm not going to buy a mid-range phone with a low budget phone's display (Xperia Go).
Other mobile manufacturers have launched their flagship phones and all high end phones in India along with the International release. eg- Samsung's Galaxy SIII, Note 2, it's tablets. HTC's One X, 8X, Sensation, Nokia Lumia 800, Lumia 710, 808 Pureview. LG phones. I would rather wait for a Lumia 920 than wait for a better Sony mobile, or buy a HTC 8X, One X, 8S, than a Xperia Go.. The other mobile manufacturers treat the Indian market much better than Sony.
I could go on and on about how Sony has disappointed its customers, loyal fans (whose number decreases exponentially every year), an entire generation that grew up adoring the Sony Ericsson Walkman and Cybershot phones..
Sony mobile boasts of the Sony experience, they should experience getting their phone repaired in their service centre or finding an accessory for your phone in your city in a friggin Sony Center (Visited two of them, neither had any a year back, and you can find fake accessories everywhere), or mail the local support to ask about product launches, availability, software updates, and wait for their reply, experience that!!
Post Your comments and opinions and i hope someone somewhere who can make a change sees our discussion.. Like this post if u agree with me..

You can get the latest info about product availability from your local support team. If they have no information at the moment then no one can inform you when or if these models will be released on your market.

In the support center there are dumb people and they do not know anything. Now SONY does not want to sell their phone india. The Apple was King with few features in it Samsung came up with some more features than Apple. Samsung is jack of all Master of none then also public is going behind samsung since there are no phone in teh market to compete and SONY cannot see all this.
IF Sony looks at the discussion in XPERIA V FORUM it is 12000+ view on this discussion and approximately 1000+ reply. This should be the best place for their marketing people to start/launch the xperia V in the indian market. If sony delays launching this phone then it will be loss for their company and people will go for another phone.
By that time SOny lanches Xperia Z (not sure when) Samsung will be launching S4( has unbreakable flexible display) this will be another threat for sony.

Thats good atleast you took initiative to create the voting. But I doubt if sony releases this phone in india. Eventhough if it i release in india it would be ~40K as it has been launched in European Market with ~40K.
