Can Sony's rumored 6.44" Togari phone rival a Galaxy Note III if both came with a stylus?

Not to say that Snapdragon 800, a 6.4" Full HD screen and 3,500 mAh battery are not impressive, but what caught our attention is that Sony is making the big screen matter with a stylus silo, like in Samsung's Note series, and equipping the handset with an IR blaster to serve as a remote control for your home electronics...

Lol, they will be second to Samsung and Apple until Sony convinces consumers with these initial 2013 phone releases that their software won't be sluggish like it has been in the past.

"and like they say......you cant out do the one whos done it first!"

Oh yes you can...there are many example of that through out history. For the sake of simplicity...lets just say that the Apple Newton was the first PDA.

Palm came along later and totally did it better.

Win Mo, Palm, BB.....were the top dogs in smartphones. In comes the iPhone....then Android. Palm isnt even making phone anymore. Ford was one of the original car makers. I would take a Nissan, Toyota, and Honda over a Ford anyday. All 3 started later than Ford.

Being the first to do something doesnt mean you cant be outdone. Any comnpany that thinks that and believes that....is doomed to fall flat on their face.

Where is Atari now...they just filed for bankruptcy. Sega no longer makes a game console....and I think they were the first to do CD games vs Sony.

Try to guess where the first 2 console makers are now in the gaming industry...I didnt even know Magnovox made a game console...til a few minutes ago....lol

I am hoping Sony is able to connect the dots.... If only to keep Sammy on its toes. Otherwise, Sammy gets complacent. Nokia got complacent once, and look what happened to them.

However,if Sony can't release a competitive phone on VZW, oh well. Maybe HTC will be able to reinvent themselves. Competition drives innovation.

I was going to say that (long time no see) about you. I have been posting, just not in threads you were following.

Not sure of your reference to Japan flaming up, though.

I will say this, Samsung has proven themselves and Sony has yet to establish a strong presence in the Android community. But Sony does have the potential to make there presence felt. Sony's efforts will definitely create more competition in the Android industry, which will definitely be welcomed by consumers.

Difficult for Sony to compete where it will matter the most ... BRIC nations.

You don't even know the full potential of tegra 4 or octa core before you say doomed.

last time i checked, amoled isnt perfect either

As much as I appreciate the beauty of Amoled panels but I still prefer LCD IPS Panels that LG & HTC currently uses over SONY LCD Panels that their flagship device uses.

I think that the vertical integration that Samsung hard will be hard to out do, but Sony's approach of including water resistance is a step in the right direction.

When it comes to facing a rival with more resources or abilities, if you cant compete on their terms, create your own terms.

They will have to do an amazing job with the software to rival the Note III and not just reproduce what Samsung has already done. Good Luck to them both!!!

Sony software needs to surpass the level where Samsung is currently at for it to definitely happen.

personal preference is somtimes all that is needed meaning some have already jumped shiped from samsung back to Sony because they have always been with this company but just have been geting takin advantage of by cheating companies such as samsung and apple.......and now that people see Sony upping their game they are leaning back to where they started off in the mobile world......................SOME, not all tho

Indeed but SONY's software optimization is still behind that of Samsung. ex. Recent released Xperia phones (T/TX/V) wich uses thesame exact Dualcore S4 chipset found in the US SGS3, has some noticeable lag in then (Scrolling screens, Pic Gallery). Which therefore I concluded that they really need to up their game in that department.
