The title is somewhat wrong, March 2011?

I won't get another dual-core phone. I am waiting for a 28 nm, 1.5 GHz quad-core, 1 to 2 GB of RAM, with at least 720p minimum resolution on a 4.3" or above screen phone. Preferably a HTC or a Samsung phone. That will be my next phone. The Samsung Galaxy Note to me is EXTREAMLY sexy to me, but I will hold out for what I was just talking about. I love the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note. That 5.3” is very, very appealing though.

The rumor regarding the Xperia Duo was more exciting. . . Hope the 12mp image produced by this camera wont have the same issue with the 8.1mp (image compression) camera of the Arc. . . I hope their learning doesn't end with just the timely software update. . .

" the biggest we’ve seen on an SE-made handset," --> Wrong, what about the Sony Ericsson Satio with its 12MP camera?
6. XiphiasGladius (Posts: 799; Member since: 21 Aug 2011)
I think they mean a handset with an Exmor R sensor. . . Not the number of MP

Unfortunately it probably won't make it to the US until late 2012 :(
8. SpanishDeveloper (Posts: 43; Member since: 25 Aug 2011)
This will probably be the first dual-core smartphone from SE. It was about time!

12MP?! What do you think the size of the camera sensor will be? I'm hoping it would at least be bigger then the usual 1/23"...
Also, according to xperiablog.net, it won't have an external storage extension. Means everything's inbuilt. And microsim too... =.=

Who cares, Sony Ericsson will be bankrupt soon anyway if they don't find another OS (as Google will be making their own phones, and SE would then be out of business with android)
And Sony Ericsson being a half swedish company, i don't really want them to go bankrupt. Hopefully SE understands this.

"IF" still a big IF. . . that would only happen if google starts to alienate other phone manufacturers which might go down as one of the dumbest or brightest move in tech history. . .
Still SE had Symbian partnership before which at present is an OS rapidly improvining in terms of functionality (though they are still behind in the OS marathon). . .

Peter, you really DO want people to use Bada don't you?
Google MIGHT make their own phones, but android WILL remain open source, so companies like Samsung,SE,and HTC etc, WILL continue to use it...
Android is the biggest thing in mobile right now,and will be untill something better comes out.

Good afternoon Peter
I am surprised Sony Ericsson is still around. Though I think Android maybe there best chance for some success. Here we have sony stores which I have nicknamed "sorry stores".
Because everytime I go in there. I say to myself I am sorry I am not paying those prices for there stuff and I am sorry i bothered going in there.
14. PeterIfromsweden (Posts: 1230; Member since: 03 Aug 2011)
Hmm, we have sony stores here in Sweden as well, and i like them : )
In fact my camera is a Sony Alpha 55, and i'm happy with it. Not overly priced either.

hope sony will sell their phone with cheap price...as they blamed their Tsunami in Japan for the overprice of the last year's mobile...I just can't leave sony because of these reasons:
1.samsung is very powerful but Apple is always running after them for patents...my friends will laugh at me "OMG,you bought the copycat!!!"
2.HTC mobiles have various problems like Death Grip issue,touchscreen issue
3.Nokia?...sorry symbian (or wp7 whatever)
So my choice is sony...bit outdated though...but arc beats sensation,optimus 2X...
Galaxy s II is a nice choice but the patent war is very annoying...
Will be waiting for Nozomi....

Don't let Apples bullying hinder you from buying a samsung device !!!
17. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
wait.. you dont buy the superior samsung because your worried your friends will think you bought an iCopycat?!?!? lol
wow.. thats shallow.
just remind them when they get the iphone5 that its a complete rip off of android and based on old tech.

I'm so glad I don't know "iPhone people"
22. PimpStrong (Posts: 310; Member since: 25 Jul 2011)
So you let the patent wars which have nothing to do with you get in the way of buying the best phone out? (Galaxy S II)
19. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
depending on which comes out first, i MIGHT just get this first instead of the Prime.... hope SE makes it somewhat AMOLEDy.... it's hard going back to LCDs after experiencing the awesomeness that is S-AMOLED :P

Peter you into photography?
I am I have currently a Nikon d40x dslr but have had many Canon Dslr's too.
26. PeterIfromsweden (Posts: 1230; Member since: 03 Aug 2011)
One of my hobbies are photography (in fact, one of my photos are on the latest camera comptetino here on phonearena, please vote for it if youl like it, it is called sunset in sweden) : )
How is the Nikon d40 ?
I haven't tried it, but i can say that Sony's cameras are really good, recomend you have a look at them when you purchase your next camera.

So my dilemma... do i go for the new Experia Ray which is not that available in stores at the moment, or do I hold out for the Nozomi?
Can anyone advise me, PLEASE?
I use my phone for the usual calls and texts but it is my bible for photos and would be helpful to access my email and internet.
Kindest thanks in advance.
31. XiphiasGladius (Posts: 799; Member since: 21 Aug 2011)
Best choice is Wait and buy the Nozomi, But that would be by summer of next year if you can manage to wait that long. . .
32. orghem (Posts: 2; Member since: 07 Sep 2011)
Will hold out then. Thanks for your advice. I have tried other brands but always come back to good old SE. Hope its all its cracked up to be. Thanks again.

Iphony people have there little pinkie finger up in the air as they speak on the phone. Not covering the apple logo of course so everyone can see there incredible phone.

its funny, my little brother is a victim of the 1disease, he's on att and was due for an upgrade from his old beat up sammy, which by the way still worked very well after being dropped on the ground, in a toilet, (his 18th b day party, weve all been there...lol) and it never once had a prob with the phone, it just looked beat to hell, so he buys in too the iphone bs hype and gets one, its been just two weeks and last night he told me he has never regretted anything more in his life then buying that phone in fact his exact words were....."its boring, it freezes all the time, talk and surf my a$$, this phone is garbage bro and im stuck with it for two years...." this is when i told him he was still in his 30 day return time, he then hugged me......

How about Xperia Duo??? It is also the dual-core device of SE brand but it's rumoured..

as much as i like sony so much i say that they are late. by the time they release their dual core phones other brand are to release their quad core phones. look at LG, SAMSUNG, HTC even Apple. they are all dual core ran TODAY.
