This...Looks...HOT. Best thing they did was replace the snapdragon with the Ericsson chip :)

Sony are the best at design
Have you seen the very nice Xperia active ?

That thing looks huge to be only a 4" screen.

i hate to say it but by mid next year this phone will probably be a mid-range device :/ if they released it now however it would be a monster to not be toyed with. i hope they release a true quad core sony device next year. sony could compete with samsung if they try hard enough

Yeah i feel like sony doesn't know how to play in the mobile market. They have the products, just not the timelines.

mid-range? It'll be in the lowest-range of smartphones. Hardly a phone anyone will give a hoot about.

Future Sony upper mid-range phone. Somewhat the successor of Xperia neo. Nova Thor 8500 is an entry level dual core actually.
Anyway, THIS is how I want Sony flagship to look like! Not like the Nozomi

Dam thats a good looking phone! I just hope it makes it to a US carrier . Because all the good sony and nokia phones only go to european carriers.

Sony is going to be a player. I am sure impressed with this. It will be fun to see Sony come out strong in 2012.

Would love this phone on VZ but you know they would NEVER consider a phone with a screen that size unless it is a low end phone. boo hoo
19. ThomasFlowerchild (Posts: 12; Member since: 17 Aug 2011)
1 GHz dual-core
4 inch screen
8 megapixel camera
So, this is a mid-range phone?
Because when this phone launches high-end phones will have quad-core. And 8 megapixels? Common, the Satio had 12 megapixels and is 3 years old or so...
Give us a better camera than the Nokia N8 and I would be happy

Totally agree with you! Looks great, but by the time it launches it will be mid-range phone!

In mid 2013 Quad cores will be Mid-Range......

This is not a Nyphon, it's a Xperia Arc and someone has photoshoped the branding. The bottom of Nyphon it squared not arc'ed and the side view on Nyphon looks more like an iphone 4s. This is bad info.
