sony is pretty much hack-friendly after what happened with the PS3 hacking...
matter in fact, sony won the OEM of the year 2012 at xda-developers. kudos sony, keep up the good job, we love you :D.

Sony has to make a big splash in the US market to be considered relevant. I really like to design, seems modern. But until they make a huge commitment here it will never overtake Samsung.

Of course the hacker friendly mentality would have to go away here in the states.
